Title Auto-AG : enhancing the user experience for access Grid meetings
Abstract Access Grid is a multi-site, group-to-group conferencing tool utilised in large scale collaboration projects such as the UK National Grid Service (NGS) and allows the Scientific Computing Technology Group (SCT), which is split between a Rutherford and Daresbury Campus, to communicate cost-free. This report intends to outline some of the key developments which have enabled Auto-AG to become an essential tool for setting up Access Grid meetings within the STFC. This tool is used in all three main Access Grid facilities in the e-Science department and caters for each unique room setup. By providing a rich feature set, encompassing many features found within the Venue Client, Auto-AG ensures meetings commence with little to no interruption, allowing both experienced operators and new users alike to set up meetings. Auto-AG simplifies the set-up process by implementing easy to use ?right click? positioning systems to allow operators to automatically place video feeds, it also automate processes for turning on and off conference room Audio and Video equipment. In order to provide an accessible interface, Auto-AG also de-clutters the user environment and consolidates key Venue Client features. Auto-AG also introduces a ?tutorial mode?, guiding users through the process of setting up meetings.
