Multi-User Interface for Scalable Resolution Touch Walls
thesisposted on 29.10.2016 by Arthur Nishimoto
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
As scalable resolution display walls are becoming a more common tool for visualizing and analyzing large amounts of data, many interaction techniques have been developed to explore information displayed on screen. With the growing use of multi-touch technology in personal devices, limited work has been done exploring multi-touch interaction on scalable resolution display walls where multiple users can be simultaneously interacting with the display either collaboratively or independently. This thesis presents a multi-user interface designed to leverage the capabilities of multi-touch on large scalable resolution display walls. This system allows multiple users to have access to the user interface anywhere across the display and search through collections of media files in a personal space. Finally this thesis will examine different layouts of the user interface and present the results of a user experience study to evaluate this multi-touch centric user interface design.
