The Visualization Studio is a collaborative environment for researchers that provides an ideal physical space for arranging visual information. The room contains 12 projectors (3 per wall) used to display the contents of a single, Windows computer screen 360-degrees across four walls. It also provides the infrastructure to tie in personal laptops, allowing four different users to project on the walls simultaneously. Because the Visualization Studio runs a standard desktop, it can support a wide range of applications and users from a variety of disciplines with varying levels of computer skills. Custom software is available to exploit the display space of the Visualization Studio, and the room enables video conferencing as well.
The Visualization Studio is located in D. H. Hill Library on the 2nd floor of the stacks, next to the Unity Lab.
