High-Resolution Multiprojector Display Walls
July/August 2000 (vol. 20 no. 4)
pp. 38-44
Recent advances in scientific simulation have rapidly led to the generation of multiterabyte-size data sets of unprecedented spatial and temporal resolution. The Accelerated Strategic Computing Initiative (ASCI) of the US Department of Energy is building a comprehensive environment for scientific simulation, visualization and analysis of such data sets. As part of this environment, we at LLNL are building visualization hardware and software that will display up to 15 times the number of pixels in a typical desktop display.
