Built as a 7×5 standard HD panel matrix, the LHRD (Large, High-Resolution Display) of 70 Megapixel delivered crisp, breath-taking imagery across a series of use cases.
Interactive usage of Google Maps, custom visualization software, Unity and multi-source windows on a very large display seems to be a representative but not complete list of what has been done last years at the Insitute of Visual Computing.
Specifically an eye-tracking based adaptive view rendering to increase system usage efficiency as well as Kinect-based gaming application gave me an idea what future visual applications to immersively interact with complex worlds of Big Data will be in 1-2 years.
Before this event, I thought that a competing technology to such displays might be an advanced Head Mounted Display, but now I doubt that in near future a HMD device could offer same scalability in terms of high resolution as a LHRD. Still, in a VR application demonstrated by the EU funded startup VIORAMA I could zoom into a 1000 MP Hieronymus Bosch paining (related video) .
Now, I am of course looking forward to experience similar LHRD setup, but based not on HD panels, but 4k, or even better 8k, which will be definitely awesome.
