UTS Data Arena Demonstration
May 27 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm
The UTS Data Arena is a 360 degree interactive information visualisation facility. It turns large data sets into pictures, facilitating our understanding of complex and diverse data sets. In the virtual reality of the Data Arena, researchers can visualise, manipulate and even interact with their data.
Viewers stand in the middle of a large cylindrical screen, four metres high and ten metres in diameter. A high performance computer graphics system drives six 3D-stereo video projectors, edge-blended to create a seamless three-dimensional panorama.
Picture clarity is made possible from an image that’s 20,000 x 1200 pixels. Each user wears Active-Shutter Glasses, which present separate left/right views to achieve a stereo-visual effect. To complement the visual experience, a 16-channel audio system surrounds the Arena. Speakers fitted behind the perforated screen allow sound to be positioned in 3D space.
Users in the Arena can surround themselves in data to observe, explore, refine, improve, discover and learn.
Data Arena demonstrations run for 30 minutes.
