This autumn, researchers at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) got a powerful new tool to add to the centre’s strong mix of visualization and virtual reality tools. The centre’s CAVE immersive 3D visualization facility was upgraded to be among the few CAVEs in the world that employ purely LED technology.
The new system has a total of 1,620 LED panels and 225 LED frames, or cabinets. Each wall has a resolution of 2,400x2,430 pixels, a major upgrade from the previous 1,920x1,920 pixels available in the previous version. “Our new CAVE makes it possible to present research results more effectively and it helps to deepen and refine scientific knowledge,” said Prof. Dieter Kranzlmüller, Director of LRZ.
The CAVE will be available to users across all three GCS centres as part of the InHPC project, a Gauss Centre for Supercomputing project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
