HIPerWall System

November 10, 2011
Collaboration and concurrent visualization of 20 simulation runs performed by the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) using the HIPerWall (Highly Interactive Parallelized Display Wall) system. Located at the University of California, Irvine, the HIPerWall system is a facility aimed at advancing earth science modeling and visualization by providing unprecedented, high-capacity visualization capabilities for experimental and theoretical researchers. It's being used to analyze IPCC datasets. The room-sized HIPerWall display measures nearly 23x9 feet and consists of 50 flat-panel tiles that provide a total resolution of over 200 million mega pixels, bringing to life terabyte-sized data sets. Until the development of the HIPerSpace (Highly Interactive Parallelized Display Space) system in 2006 (which has a screen resolution of up to 220 million pixels), HIPerWall was the record holder for highest-resolution tiled display screen, with 200 million pixels. HYPerWall was built in 2005 with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The newer HIPerSpace system was built in 2006 and is located at the University of California, San Diego. The two systems are linked via optical fiber so that combined they can deliver real-time-rendered graphics simultaneously across 420 million pixels to audiences at Irvine and San Diego. [HYPerWall was developed with support from an NSF Major Research Instrumentation grant, CNS 04-21554.] (Date of Image: 2005-2008) [See related image Here.]
