INFORMATION SYSTEMS AND TECHNOLOGY
The Visualization Wall, inside the Petit Science Center, provides a large-scale, high-resolution visualization environment for research and teaching. Faculty in computer science, geosciences, biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy, mathematics, statistics, public health, criminal justice, education, the library, and the arts use the wall to understand complex or highly visual systems through simulation and visualization. Funded by University Research Services and Administration,Vice President of Research Robin Morris, this high-resolution wall is used to explore new ways of presenting and interacting with data and to provide new methods of collaborative research. Easy to begin using, the Visualization Wall is the first known Microsoft Windows-based system of its kind especially designed to support research that is multi-faceted, collaborative, exploratory, creative, and highly interactive interface. The Visualization Wall dramatically highlights the potential of technologies such as Google Earth, Microsoft’s Photosynth, or Linden Research’s Second Life.
FEATURES • 2D and 3D acceleration • Four Intel Quad Core i7 processor systems • 8 GB solid-state extreme speed hard drive • 12 GB high-speed memory • 6 graphics processing units • Forty-eight 30” panels with 2560 x1600 resolution in main wall • Four 30” panels with 2560 x 1600 resolution in control panel • Intel Quad Core i7 processor in the control panel • CineMassive Software Suite and Multiplicity for control functions • One terabyte of disk space for each server • ArcGIS desktop software
With over 200 Million Pixels, equivalent to 94 x 720p HDTV, the Petit Science Center Visualization Wall is one of the largest (total pixels) tiled display walls in the world. The high-resolution visualization wall has far more pixels than conventional computer displays and far higher resolution than even conventional HDTV displays, which means that the visualization wall can clearly display high levels of image detail.
