Crossing the borders of Virtual Reality
How can we create a virtual reality environment with the highest possible degree of immersion, without overloading users with too much equipment to wear? The Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics (ETI) at the Gdańsk University of Technology, Poland, has found the solution. Its brand-new ‘Immersive 3D Visualization Lab’ combines a large, six-sided active stereo CAVE with a large, transparent, spherical walk simulator – a world first! The CAVE at the heart of the laboratory, which is one of the largest in the world, is powered by 12 Barco Galaxy NW7 projectors. They ensure the brightness, the active 3D stereo capabilities and edge-blending features that the faculty needs to provide exemplary image quality.
