MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa, November 8 -- Fakespace Systems Inc. today announced that it has delivered the world's highest resolution visualization room to the Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) Program at Los Alamos National Laboratory. This breakthrough room size immersive viewing environment provides a 43 million pixel display to help ASC researchers better understand and leverage the massive amounts of data generated by the U.S. Nuclear Weapons Stockpile Stewardship Program.
Fakespace Systems designed and built nine visualization systems housed at Los Alamos, four of which are in the Nicholas C. Metropolis Center for Modeling and Simulation. The new immersive visualization system is a 15-ft. wide by 10-ft. deep and 12-ft. high room in which images are rear-projected onto three walls, the ceiling and the floor. A total of 33 stereoscopic digital projectors are seamlessly tiled to produce continuous images that meet the laboratory's requirements for unprecedented brightness, resolution and dynamic color range so that small details and subtle phenomena can be easily detected and analyzed.
As a worldwide leader in the employment of predictive simulation science, Los Alamos National Laboratory is using the new immersive facility to maintain the U.S. government nuclear stockpile without underground testing.
Potential future uses include work in crisis prediction, climate modeling, and in understanding the impact of natural and man-made disasters on infrastructure such as transportation, power, telecommunications and water delivery systems.
Los Alamos National Laboratory will exhibit at booth #312 at SuperComputing 2005, an international conference on high performance computing, networking and storage that takes place November 14-17, 2005 in Seattle, Washington.
