*  High-definition Tile Display Wall

The NCHC’s Tile Display Wall (TDW) project takes advantage or recent developments in computer and visualization technologies to create large-scale extremely high resolution displaying of scientific data.

*  Specifications

The NCHC’s TDW is a rear projection system consisting of a 4×3 matrix of tiles (i.e. 12 tiles total) (Figs. 1~2). It utilizes two projectors per tile (i.e. 24 projectors total) and produces a resolution of 1024x768 per each individual tile. This brings the system’s total resolution up to 4096x2304 {(4x3)x(1024x768) = 4096x2304 = 9,437,184 pixels}—almost 1,000,000 pixels total! The system is used to display high resolution images and data such as aerial and satellite images, numerical calculations, bio, molecular and genetic structures, climate analysis, and highly detailed geographic information.

High-resolution viewing of scientific data using TDW allows researches to better understand the entire scope of the image context as well as to view it in extremely fine detail. Large scale observation also allows researchers to more easily recognize patterns within the data.
