Part of a unified Interactive Visualization System, the centerpiece technology will be a large-scale touch wall (CURVE interactWall) that will be flexible, easy to use, provide multi-touch control, and be fully integrated in the technology infrastructure of the space. Specialized research stations with high-end computers and large displays are to be located throughout the CURVE facility and networked to the interactWall source computers (Windows, Mac, and Linux) creating a unified visualization system.
CineNet Collaborative Visualization Software (from CineMassive) will allow students and other researchers the ability to share visual information across the large touch-enabled visualization system and CURVE desktops. This selected software:
Touch Control provides a centralized point of control and automation of all information and environmental systems within CURVE. This allows users to control content from multiple devices such as laptops, iPads, and iPhones.
The Multi-Touch Wall Sensor turns the interactWall into a large interactive touch display that registers up to 12 simultaneous touch points, allowing multiple users the ability to interact, engage, and access content collaboratively.
The Alpha Video Wall Controller from CineMassive is the hardware layer for CineNet. The Alpha is multi-HD image processor that can capture and display content from any device or multiple devices simultaneously at any scale on the video wall canvas. Sources can be freely scaled to any size across displays in multiple video wall arrays simultaneously.
The addition of an 84" 4K Ultra HD interactive touch workstation linked to the CURVE interactWall with fiber optics will provide added benefit to groups requiring the highest resolution possible for advanced research.
84" 4K Ultra HD similar to the touch workstation coming soon to CURVE
The CURVE Core Design Team, made up of library and information technology personnel at Georgia State, made multiple site visits to universities, research labs, and corporate offices from May to October 2013, in order to research and test-drive the latest visualization display technologies.
