dc.description.abstractIn recent years, new visualisation techniques and devices, such as remote visualisation and stereoscopic displays, have been developed to help researchers. In a remote visualisation environment the user may want to see visualisation on a different device, such as a PDA or stereo device, and in different circumstances. Each device needs to be configured correctly, otherwise it may lead to an incorrect rendering of the output. For end users, however, it can be difficult to configure each device without a knowledge of the device property and rendering. Therefore, in a multiple user and multiple display environment, to obtain the correct display for each device can be a challenge. In this project, the focus on investigating a solution that can support end users to use different display devices easily. The proposed solution is to develop an application that can support the ad-hoc use of any display device without the system being preconfigured in advance. Thus, end users can obtain the correct visualisation output without any complex rendering configuration. We develop a client-server based approach to this problem. The client application can detect the properties of a device and the server application can use these properties to configure the rendering software to generate the correct image for subsequent display on the device. The approach has been evaluated through many tests and the results show that using the application is a useful in helping end users use different display devices in visualisation.en
