ORNL Everest Upgrade (on hold pending transportation issue)
For nearly ten years, researchers have seen their large datasets as images on the screens in the EVEREST room. With the new upgrade, scientists will be better able to visualize their data to make discoveries. The renovations include a 37 mega pixel stereoscopic wall made up of 18 individual display monitors. Stereoscopy creates depth in an image for a 3D effect. While the old system could show movies, high-resolution images, and some live applications, the new system’s 3D capabilities will allow for greater detail in data visualization. Read more…Here.
