Virtual Lightbox

By | 2017-02-05T21:25:33+00:00 Thu, Jul 9, 2015|

The Virtual Lightbox is a software tool for comparing images online. It exists in two versions, an application and an applet (both programmed in Java). The applet version, which is newly developed, furnishes what we believe to be an extremely flexible environment for online image comparison. Its primary audience is developers who wish to add an image comparison tool to a Web-based image collection. Simple server-side scripting allows users to populate the Lightbox applet in any number of ways. The application version, which was developed earlier, allows users to share images in peer-to-peer fashion: all users participating in a common session see the same images in the same on-screen configuration at the same time. Movement of an image and other operations are all globally propagated in realtime. Thus the application version functions as an image-based whiteboard.

The Versioning Machine

The Versioning Machine was a display environment designed specifically for displaying and comparing deeply-encoded, multiple versions of texts, including a robust typology of notes and bibliographic information. It also displayed manuscript images of each version in an applet which provides for several image enhancement features (such as increased/decreased contrast, image enlargement/reduction, etc. In short, it proved an electronic environment for creating a critical electronic edition. The Versioning Machine made its debut at the 2002 ALLC/ACH (Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing/Association for Computers and the Humanities) Conference in Tübingen, Germany, July 2002.

The goal was to construct a significant scholarly online resource for studying John Milton’s A Maske, familiarly known as Comus. The choice of this particular work was made due to its various interpretations and forms (text, hypertext, pictoral and musical).
