Despite the large variety of “off the shelf” solutions and academic research studies, application virtualization for cloud distribution is still an open research topic, with significant issues to be solved, ranging from bridging the gap between users expectation of simple, intuitive and user-friendly access from any type of terminal and the fragmented landscape of SaaS offer, with peculiarities related to the hardware/software configurations and the optimization of the technical resources consumption.

Our study investigates the possibility of using HTML5 a virtualization tool for RDP-based applications. Architectural modules related to the RDP content interception, conversion, adaptation, remote rendering and interaction are specified, designed and implemented. This architecture is validated under the framework of the MEDUSA European project, in partnership with medical institutions. The testbed considers a server and 5 mobile users, with heterogeneous devices (tablets, smartphones, laptops) running under iOS, Android and Windows operating systems. The objective/subjective evaluations demonstrated that: (1) the user experience is not reduced by the virtualization, (2) the network consumption is reduced by a factor of 1.8 with respect to state-of-the-art solutions.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
