The VisLab is a state-of-the-art scientific visualization environment, providing an immersive environment for visualizing complex datasets in stereo-3D and collaborating across sites via high-definition video teleconferencing.
Focus areas for the lab include:
The 1,000-square-foot facility supports video conferencing technologies, data analysis and visualization, and theater-style presentations in a widescreen, high-resolution, 3D format. The facility is equipped with a high-definition, 3D, 1920×1080-resolution, active stereo projector and a 12×7-foot screen that gives researchers the capability to visualize massive datasets and numerical models. This system displays imagery and presentation materials simultaneously from multiple sources including user laptops, digital media systems, and video conferencing platforms.
The VisLab can comfortably seat about 35 people for a boardroom-style meeting and a few more for a theater-style presentation, and is a completely "fly-by-wire" system: the computers, lights, and audio systems are all operated by a dedicated touchpad display or a web interface via a browser. VisLab events are managed by the Visualization & Enabling Technologies Section (VETS).
