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.

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.

GRAV Installation

To install GRAV on your Scientific Linux system, simply execute the following command:

yum install grav

 

Running GRAV

With the Venue Client already started, simply execute the command:

grav

This should have the software up and running and communicating with the AG Venue Client software.

 

A special thanks should also go to:

Andrew Ford (RIT) – The primary developer of the software.

Douglas Kosovic (UQ) - for his huge efforts in building and packaging the software for Scientific Linux.
