VRV Studio

The VRV Studio is a semi-immersive display facility situated in Ellison Building 2nd floor.

This facility enables advanced visualisation research and consultancy activities and is equipped with an active stereo projection-based system. Polarized glasses enable the viewing of 3D stereo images by groups of up to twenty people and the facility is used for teaching and learning, research and enterprise activities.

The VRV Studio uses an active stereo rear projection system based upon a Mirage 5 + 6k stereo projector from Christie. The control system for the room is integrated into an automated AMX touch panel control system with a customised interface. Light, sound and projection can be controlled from this single panel

VRV Studio has also six state of the art PCs where both undergraduate and post-graduate students carry out research and visualisation activities.
