Christie's CAVE™ paves way for more targeted research

The Weill Cornell Visualization Facility is the world’s first high definition 3D virtual reality environment. It uses the highest resolution blended images possible, projected on three walls and a walk-on floor. An interactive tracking device, worn by the primary user, coupled with a hand-held electronic wand to manipulate the images, allows multiple researchers to “move around” simultaneously within a three-dimensional data set or structure.

The facility’s immersive CAVE (computer-assisted virtual environment) is powered by eight Christie Mirage HD3 digital projectors – the industry’s first native 1920 x 1080 HD resolution 3-chip DLP® projectors with active stereo capability. The projectors feature 41% more resolution than previous projection technology, delivering superior 3D images for molecular modeling and other data-rich areas of biomedical research.
