Aglaophone is a system of interconnectable modules for the recording, processing, and playback of real-time audio. It features a real-time spectrogram display for visualization along with a number of processing modules. Modules include filters, downsamplers, upsamplers, and quantizers. An MP3 comparison module allows interactive blind comparison of MP3 encoded audio with CD audio, demonstrations of spectral imaging, quantization, and Smith-Barnwell filter bank based wavelet decomposition are included, and there is a module that can perform an automatic spectral analysis of a speaker system.
Aviascene is a virtual environment for remote exploration. Users can download actual earth topography and surface data from USGS, then go exploring. If they get lost, they can launch an aircraft to reconnoiter. It features a high- performance adaptive OpenGL terrain renderer, airplane and wheeled vehicle physics models, and the ability to mark waypoints at GPS coordinates. It can be used to plan a backpacking trip or just as a flight simulator.
Dataguzzler is a laboratory data acquisition platform for high performance waveform and image acquisition. It uses a reconfigurable modular architecture and is controllable from a command console, graphical interface, and by remote over TCP/IP. A variety of prebuilt modules, for hardware from function generators to waveform capture cards to framegrabbers, are included. As distributed, Dataguzzler comes pre-configured for two applications: A software oscilloscope, based on the Measurement Computing PCI-DAS4020/12 card, and a CameraLink imager, based on the EDT PCI-DV/CLink card.
Dynalbum is a fully dynamic automatic Web photo album generator. The album includes an index page with thumbnails, navigation tools on each album page, and four sizes of each picture. The entire album is dynamically generated from a directory of JPEGs, TIFFs, PNGs, and GIFs when it is accessed. Unlike other photo album generators, it doesn't clutter files with thumbnails and static HTML. It generates each page and each scaled image (including thumbnails) dynamically every time it is accessed. This means that there's no need to keep static copies of anything but the original pictures.
VeryNice is a tool for dynamically adjusting the nice level of processes under UNIX-like operating systems. It can also kill off runaway processes and increase the priority of multimedia applications, while properly handling both batch computation jobs and interactive applications with long periods of high CPU usage. Unlike most other process renice tools, VeryNice is not only capable of lowering a CPU-bound process's priority, but of raising the priority when the process is no longer heavily using the CPU.
