Focus-Plus-Context Screens: Context and Immersion on the Desktop

Wall-size low-resolution displays with an embedded high-resolution display region.

Innovation
Low-cost multi-resolution integration into a single surface.

Vision
These displays will become an important alternative to multi-monitor solutions in various visual-application areas, such as geographic information systems or remote medicine. To achieve that goal, future research must include experimentation with different form factors (for example, a Liveboard-like form factor) and further exploration of dynamic content-application areas (for example, virtual reality).
