The Visualization Studio is a digital facility created to support faculty and graduate researchers. Its primary feature is a high-resolution display wall with surround sound. The studio is designed to provide researchers with significant visual real estate for working with digital information. The display’s 34.5 million pixels allow for insight and overview that is impossible to achieve with a desktop monitor or standard projector; the image resolution is more than double that of an IMAX movie screen. 

The facility has many exciting potential uses: biologists examining the smallest sub-cellular details in microscopic imagery; urban planners viewing entire road corridors, while still being able to discern sidewalks, power lines and even lane markings; artists examining dynamic digital art; astronomers analyzing deep-space telescopic imagery; and sociologists digging into huge spreadsheets of data.
