PSC Visualization Lab

24 HD displays tiled and connected to create a 50-million-pixel screen – a resource for viewing high-resolution images and data visualizations for research and instruction.

Availability and Uses
The PSC visualization lab is available for UO faculty and GTFs, and others with data visualization needs or who need to use a large, high-resolution video wall.  There is currently a resident Windows 10 computer in the room, as well as AppleTV, Blu-Ray, and a variety of input options.  Examples of use might be to create or view a visual representation of large data sets; to view materials which when blown up for visibility are too large for a conventional monitor; to videoconference with other sites; or to display multiple large images side by side.

Getting Access
Because the use cases and possible software needs for this space, which was designed to be used for both research and instructional purposes, could be complex, reservations for the room are moderated and require some lead time.  Currently the calendar only accepts requests for use at least three days ahead, but requesting the space earlier, particularly if you will need assistance with software installation, is ideal. 

Once you put in your first request, you can expect we will contact you about how you hope to use the room so that we can make sure we have any software you need in place, and so that we can arrange a time for a brief orientation to the space.  Our hope is that this is not intrusive, but rather, that it leads to successful use of an unusual space.

If you have questions about whether you are eligible to use the room, or whether a particular use is appropriate, please contact the manager, or stop by during weekday hours.
