Location: UTS Data Arena. Building 11, Level 2, Room 101 (please enter from the corner of Broadway and Jones Street, walk past the escalators and the entrance to the Data Arena is the pair of silver doors on your left hand side).
The UTS Data Arena is a 360-degree interactive data visualisation facility set to change the way we view and interact with data.
Viewers stand in the middle of a large cylindrical screen, four metres high and ten metres in diameter. A high performance computer graphics system drives six 3D-stereo video projectors, edge-blended to create a seamless three-dimensional panorama.
Picture clarity is made possible from an image that’s 20,000 x 1200 pixels. Each user wears Active-Shutter Glasses, which present separate left/right views to achieve a stereo-visual effect. To complement the visual experience, a 16-channel audio system surrounds the Arena. Speakers fitted behind the perforated screen allow sound to be positioned in 3D space.
