Research output: Book/ReportReport

Abstract

An interactive videodisk project has been carried out at the Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT) during the period 1986 - 1988. The VTT Information Service has investigated the off-shelf videodisk products in Finland in order to find the most efficient, general, and versatile hardware and software combination. An interactive videodisk system at the interactivity level 3 has been produced. It is based on the videodisk "Optical Data Storage and Construction Industry", which was produced as a result of a separate project by the Laboratory of Urban Planning and Building Design. The application dealt with the RATU-catalogue about building construction methods and it was programmed by using the selected authoring language. Some further developments has been done with hyper program.
