The new EVL continuum project continues on from our original Continuum work from 2000 and our Cyber-Commons work from 2008 to create a sensor and computation enhanced classroom and collaborative work space where the room is an active assistant in the work.
EVL has been working since 2002 investigating how groups can effectively use large displays for interactive visualization of complex datasets.
CAVE2 is evl's successor to our original CAVE from 1992, giving 10 times the resolution and increased brightness and contrast at half the cost using 72 thin border passive stereoscopic LCD panels and optical tracking.
SAGE2 is the web-based successor to our SAGE graphics streaming architecture for supporting collaborative work with multiple visualization windows on large high-resolution tiled displays. Initially developed for our 100 megapixel LambdaVision display, it is now in use on over 200 walls around the world.
This project is deveoping an ultra-high resolution spherial photometric, radiometric and photogrammetric real-time data-acquisition, sensor-based, camera system.
Articulate is a semi-automated visual analytic system that is guided by a conversational user interface to allow users to verbally describe and then manipulate what they want to see.
In the fall of 2011 evl started showing classic science fiction films and TV series and their different visions of the future in the evl Cyber-Commons and discuss how views of the future, including modern ones, are influenced by current social and technological trends.
