Lower Cost Modular Spatially Immersive Visualization

  • Frederic I. Parke
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4563)


The development of lower cost modular spatially immersive visualization systems based on commodity components and faceted display surfaces is described. Commodity computers are networked to form graphics computing clusters. Commodity digital projectors are used to form surrounding rear projected faceted display surfaces based on polyhedral shapes. The use of these systems in the design and evaluation of human environments is discussed.
