High-resolution, wall-size displays often rely on bespoke software for performing interactive data visualisation, leading to interface designs with little or no consistency between displays. This makes adoption for novice users difficult when migrating from desktop environments. However, desktop interface techniques (such as task- and menu- bars) do not scale well and so cannot be relied on to drive the design of large display interfaces. In this paper we present HiReD, a multi-window environment for cluster-driven displays. As well as describing the technical details of the system, we also describe a suite of low-precision interface techniques that aim to provide a familiar desktop environment to the user while overcoming the scalability issues of high-resolution displays. We hope that these techniques, as well as the implementation of HiReD itself, can encourage good practice in the design and development of future interfaces for high-resolution, wall-size displays.
