Announcement! – We will be showing two displays at Supercomputing 2007 in Reno, Nevada from November 12-15. We will be showing a VisBox-HD6 at the NCSA booth (#103) and a VisMini at the NCHC booth (#3157).
We are pleased to introduce the VisMini, an ultra-portable stereo 3D projection system. The VisMini features Infitec stereo, allowing for excellent flicker-free stereo using any existing screen or projection surface! The VisMini is more portable than other immersive 3D displays, allowing researchers and educators to easily take their 3D visualizations on the road.
Announcement! – a VisBox-HD6 will be featured in a curated exhibit titled “Speculative Data and Creative Imaginary” at the National Academy of Science in Washington, DC. The exhibit is funded by the NSF Computational Science and Engineering (CISE) initiative and will feature collaborations between artists and scientists.
The NCSA Advanced Visualization Laboratory, headed by prof. Donna Cox, is providing the content that will be shown on the VisBox-HD6: a sequence of 3D stereo high-definition scientific visualizations in astrophysics, atmospheric science, and oceanography.
A VisWall-9x was installed at Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG) in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The High Performance Visualization Center, headed by prof. Wagner Meira Junior, will use the display for a variety of collaborations across campus.
Announcement! – a VisBox-HD6 will be featured in the NSF booth at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California from February 15-19. The NCSA Advanced Visualization Laboratory, headed by prof. Donna Cox, will present a sequence of 3D stereo high-definition scientific visualizations in astrophysics, atmospheric science, and oceanography.
Announcement! – NCSA will show the VisBox-HD6 at the NSF Budget Rollout and Open House in Arlington, Virginia on February 5th. Members of the NCSA Advanced Visualization Laboratory team will present a sequence of 3D stereo high-definition scientific visualizations in astrophysics, atmospheric science, and oceanography.
A large rear-projected VisDuo-SX was installed at the visitor center at the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi. The system features a 10’x7.5′ rear-projection screen and Ascension tracking for both the head and wand.
The exhibit will include interactive 3D visualizations of Hurricane Katrina simulations as well as other terrain, oceanographic, and metereological applications. This content will be provided by the High Performance Visualization Center at Stennis, headed by Conrad Johnson.
A rear-projected VisDuo-SX was installed in the Computer Science Department at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. The Graphics and Imaging Lab, headed by Prof. Jing Hua, will use the system for a variety of 3D visualization projects.
9 additional VisBlocks and 6 rolling VisBlock stands were installed at the Gigapixel Lab at Virginia Tech. This brings the lab total to 18 VisBlocks and an aggregate resolution of more than 16 million pixels. The stands allow columns of VisBlocks to be easily moved about to create various planar and curved display configurations.
The Gigapixel Lab, headed by Dr. Chris North, is conducting research about the human-computer interaction (HCI) issues for large-scale, high-resolution displays. The need for rapid reconfigurability of such displays for empirical research drove the development of the VisBlock product.
