CACDS Visualization Theater

The Center for Advanced Computing and Data Science Visualization Theater features seating for 30 people and a 16’x9′ screen supporting 4K digital cinema resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 and both active and passive stereo 3D modes. The system is powered by an upgraded dual boot Linux/Windows workstation with 64 GB RAM and dual Intel Xeon Haswell processors (E5-2618L v3), 8 cores each at 2.3 GHz, and 2 TB of local storage. Two AMD v8800 graphics cards drive two Sony SRX-S105 projectors with polarizing shutter filters at 4096 x 2160 pixels. The system is controlled by a RGB Spectrum MediaWall 4500 processor with 24 inputs and 12 outputs. The video processor provides digital and analog video inputs for TV/DVD/laptop computers. The workstation is compatible with most digital video formats. The room is also equipped with 7.1 surround sound.
