WATINFO is a TCP/IP server that operates at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, New York, to provide VM-based information about services and personnel at the IBM York-town Research site. Client programs have been written for Operating System/2®. (OS/2®) and Advanced Interactive Executive (AIX®). An advanced feature of WATINFO is the display of images, when appropriate, in combination with other data. The images are supported by a face server, which fetches image data from a library of face images. The format of the face images is small—256 by 256 by one bit—and is transmitted rapidly to a variety of displays. The face library can be used for other purposes: inclusion of images in documents, the preparation of image labels, and the construction of an image telephone book.
