Multi-Screen Immersive 3D Display (VisCube)
The four-walled VisCube immersive 3D display system is an affordable CAVE-like immersive virtual reality system. It features three large rear-projection walls and a front projected floor. The VisCube can be configured as a turn-key immersive virtual reality system, complete with a tracking system and graphics workstation. The VisCube makes use of the newest in bright digital projectors. The turn-key VR option adds the newest in PC graphics workstation hardware, a 6 DOF tracked input device (wand), and head tracking. The result is a system that outperforms much more expensive traditional VR hardware.

Passive Stereoscopic Display System (VisBox)
This display system is a one-wall, fully integrated, projection-based VR system with head-tracking and stereo display. The screen is 10 feet diagonal, which makes it significantly more immersive than other much more expensive systems. The VisBox uses dual-Xeon 2.4GHz LINUX PC with an nVidia dual-headed graphics card and bright projectors. The footprint of a VisBox is 8’x8’ and it is a few inches shy of being 8 feet tall, making it close to an 8’x8’x8’ cube. With this system, researchers can visualize their data in a stereoscopic virtual environment. This display system is a passive stereo display system in an all-in-one unit with 2 polarizing LCD projectors and 2 mirrors, precision-mounted in a custom frame. Users wear lightweight, inexpensive polarized eyeglasses and see a stereoscopic image. The system includes: Passive stereo with polarization; Solid-state projector with a resolution of 1024x768; Light output 2000 lumens; Wireless head tracking; 6DOF tracked input device; and Graphics workstation with Linux operating system. It supports OpenGL and Visualization Toolkit (VTK) applications.
DNP Holo Screen Display, 60"
The transparent display allows viewers to look at and see through the screen that makes the image as is suspended in mid-air. It gives an impression of almost-3D depth
Tiled Display Wall System (VisWall)
At 8'x8' and the 3x3 configuration, the VisWall is capable of a combined screen resolution of 3000x2300 pixels. It provides users with a display solution to visualize data or images at an ultra-high resolution. High-end dual-processor Linux cluster with nVidia graphics cards are used to drive the graphics applications. This is a scalable solution, which means that we can expand the number of tiles to m x n to increase the combined resolution as the budget permits. A 10-node dual processor Linux cluster drives this nine-tile display wall. The software synchronizes images at the tile interface. This provides an ultra-resolution visualization capability for very large-scale images. A Linux PC console communicating through high-speed Myrinet network drives the VisWall. Each computer is connected to a projector that contributes 1024x768screen resolution in the overall projection area.
