Teaching and Visualization Lab

The Teaching and Visualization Lab is designed as a "black box" theater for high-definition visualization and simulation, offering 270-degree immersive projection on three walls for a total of 94 linear feet of display surface. The room can meet a variety of needs, including high-impact presentations; technology-rich interactive learning in small groups; large-scale, high-definition visualization and simulation; command/control room simulation; immersive interactive computing; game research; "big data" decision theater; and comparative social computing. 

Two hundred seventy-degree stereoscopic 3D projection is available. If you are interested in its use, please request a consultation by sending e-mail to

The Lab's flexible infrastructure is designed to grow over time with the rapid advancements that are being made in visualization and display technologies. Coming in 2015: a professional zoned audio system and cameras for real-time video capture, broadcast, and collaboration.
