Open Access Display Systems for Visualization and Simulation in Virtual Environments

Standard desktop setups, even with multiple monitor configurations, only provide a somewhat small view on the data set at hand. In addition, typical mouse and keyboard input paradigms often result in less user-friendly configurations, especially when it comes to dealing with 3D data sets. For simulation environments in which participants or users are supposed to be exposed to a more realistic scenario with increased immersion, desktop configurations, such as fishtank VR, are not necessarily a viable choice.

This papers aims at providing an overview of different display technology and input devices that provides a virtual environment paradigm suitable for various different visualization and simulation tasks. The focus is on cost-effective display technology that does not break a researchers budget. The software framework utilizing these displays combines different visualization and graphics packages to create an easy-to-use software environment that can run readily on all these displays without changing the software thereby providing easy-to-use software frameworks for visualization and simulation.

More about this publication?
  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
