The Department of Scientific Computing hosts a high resolution stereographic projection system designed to support multidisciplinary scientific visualization in its seminar room located on the 4th floor of Dirac Science Library. The equipment was acquired in large part thanks to a Major Research Instrumentation grant from the National Science Foundation.
The room can seat approximately 100 people.
The SCS seminar room is equipped with a presentation console where a variety of A/V devises can be controlled by using a simple touch panel controller. The following devises/connections are provided:
- one windows XP workstation for DVI and stereo displays (full screen resolution is 2480 x 1050)
- two connections for laptops (one cat5 cable, plus the campus wireless is available)
- one document camera
- one DVD/VHS player
- limited cable TV
- stereo audio output from the workstation, DVD/VHS player, and cable TV
- wireless microphone
The following is a picture of the touch panel used to access the available input devises.
