The Visualization Laboratory, located in room 346 of the Peter B. Lewis Science Library, features a rear-projected display wall of nearly 150 square feet. A 10,000 lumen Sony SRX-S110 projector is driven by a high-performance graphics system providing a native display resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels, more than four times the resolution of high-definition televisions. The scale and resolution of the display wall make this facility ideal for collaborative visual exploration and presentation of high-resolution imagery.
The lab workstation (dual Nehalem-EP "Gainstown" CPUs, 24GB RAM) runs Microsoft Windows or PU_IAS Linux in a dual-boot configuration. Graphics support is provided by a deskside NVIDIA Quadro Plex 2200 D2, containing two Quadro FX 5800 boards for a total of 8GB of framebuffer memory.
