The Cooperative-Web - A Reference Implementation: IBM OpusUna

IBM's David Boloker & Dan Gisolfi to Present at SYS-CON's AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo, Oct. 20-22, in San Jose, CA

Web applications are accessible on smart phone, TV, desktop, your home office or in your conference room. They have become common decision aids for our personal and business meetings. Situational Applications provide rich information and data visualization aids for decision-oriented meetings. The Cooperative Web reflects those situational applications that provide mediated collaboration as well as real-time streaming high-definition video.

IBM OpusUna is a reference implementation of the Cooperative Web. It replicates the power of face-to-face communications by injecting the full range of human sensors (sight, sound, touch) into live web meetings. Meeting participants can augment their web meetings or Telepresence sessions with shared manipulation of situational applications. Colleagues and friends can now work together using the web without sacrificing the human sensory experience of face-to-face communications.
