3D projection and interactive VR
DVL can project full resolution 2D or 3D HD images onto our 4 meter back-projected screen. This allows users to walk right up to their data and interrogate it at first hand. Currently the projection system uses a Christie Mirage HD projector which when coupled with the world's first RealD LP Pro polarization switch allows us to show precisely aligned stereoscopic imagery.
In-front of the display we have an Intersense IS900 wireless 6 degrees-of-freedom mouse and head tracking system which can be used to interact with the visualization, or to monitor how users move within the space for human factors studies of new techniques.
3D displays, photography and video
The True3Di display is one of fifteen different desktop 3D displays we host. These allow high quality desktop 3D display of computer graphics, photography and video images. The True3Di generates reference quality images allowing us to test new imaging techniques, for example coding and compression algorithms, or data interpretation methods.
To generate images of the real world we host stereoscopic still cameras, using the latest Canon EOS 5Dmkii systems, and stereoscopic movie capture using the advanced Canon XH-G1s, synchronised HD digital video cameras. These can be used to test the use of 3D in your applications, or as reference quality images sources for further work on algorithms.
