This is a movie of a remote virtual collaboration recorded live in an active session between scientists at Old Dominion University and NCSA.  Across a CAVE, Power Wall, desktop and Immersadesk, researchers navigate and share data across a variety of domains.  This event was video recorded simultaneously in two locations in 1999 and edited to create this movie.
