Visualization Wall

The Visualization Wall offers a cutting-edge environment for large-scale interactive data visualization. It consists of a huge high-resolution display with 50 million pixels to accommodate unprecedented amounts of data using multiple synchronised data visualizations. This 7-metre wall-sized display affords collaborative decision-making for complex analytical tasks. The VisWall comes with a powerful computer cluster to perform on-the-fly computations triggered by user interactions and provide immediate feedback. Users get an immersive data experience thanks to the numerous ways of interacting with the VisWall, including multi-touch, motion-tracking based on commercial and custom 3D-printed interaction devices for navigation in large data spaces, orchestrated to meet their needs. A wide range of applications involving the exploration and analysis of large and/or complex data sets can be supported. Contact us to discuss your needs!
