Multiscreen Projection

What is it?

A cubical, room-sized fully immersive visualization system. The walls of the room are made up of rear-projection screens. High-resolution projectors display images on each of the screens. The user goes inside of the system wearing shutter/polarizer glasses to allow for stereoscopic viewing. The WorldViz Eyes 2013 device mounted on the glasses allows for precise real-time tracking of your viewpoint. Using the WorldViz Wand 2013 you navigate through the virtual environment and interact with virtual objects displayed on the screens. The screen images are rendered by a PC cluster controlled by the WorldViz Vizard VR toolkit high-level cluster module.

Advantages

  • Analyze and interpret spatially related data efficiently
  • Multiple users can get immersed and naturally collaborate
  • Complete sense of presence in the virtual environment
  • No heavy headgear needed, no tethering wires

Limitations

  • Significant dedicated space requirements (specifically for six-sided version)
  • Hardware intensive (projectors, screens, PC cluster)
  • Limited walking space compared to wide-area HMD walking system

What can I do with it?

  • Industrial prototyping
  • Manufacturing and design reviews
  • Academic research
  • Seismic interpretation and well planning
  • Computational fluid dynamics
