The CCS Visualization Lab is the latest tool for data driven research at UM.  With a direct connection to all CCS resources, the Viz Lab is the perfect tool for high performance parallel visualization, data exploration, and other advanced 2D and 3D simulations.   Capable of accommodating 14 people, it is also an impressive space to host your next meeting.  The Viz Lab is a free resource to the UM community.

The visualization lab consists of two wall displays: a Mechdyne 3D Display, and a Cyviz 2D Display.


3D Display

Viz Lab University of Miami Center for Computational Science 3-D Display

Mechdyne’s 3D display requires computational input and is specifically designed for utilization by a more advanced user group. Ideal users are a computing experts and computer science and engineering students who seek to develop new techniques and approaches for immersive visualization.  The Mechdyne 3D wall display includes:

  • 2 x 2 Tile Wall Display System:  Four (4) Planar Clarity Matrix – 46” 3D LCD-system -controlled 2 x 8-core/16-thread processors Video System
  • Video System Laptop Wired Connection Points: Two wired laptop connections with dual-input scaler for HDMI or VGA
  • Audio System
  • Apple iPad Console Control System

2-D Display

University of Miami Center for Computational Science Visualization Laboratory

The Vizlab also offers a 2D 5 x 2  Cyviz wall display. This display is a plug-and-play, user-friendly display that enables use by the UM community.  Cyviz 2D wall display is comprised of:

  • 5 x 2 Planar Matrix 55” Ultra-thin panels
  • XPO4 Video Processor:  8 PiPs, Single Desktop, 9600 x 2160 resolution
  • 15” Touch Panel Display Controller with Enterprise Server
  • Audio System
