Installing and using GRAV

Please note this this page is currently in development and further testing is required!


GRAV is a GL-based application for receiving & displaying many videos, using RTP. Primarily intended for videoconferencing/telepresence/etc applications, all videos are displayed in a canvas-style window, with a globe displayed in the background for geographical correlation, as well as automatic grouping, both based on RTCP metadata. [Text taken from]


Grav can be used an alternative Video Consumer on the Access Grid, in which all the video streams are displayed on a single Open GL application.
