Announcing The Data Visualization Wall at ProtoSpace

By Jordan Hanzon, Account Executive

It’s big. It’s cool. And it’s here for you—all 170 square feet of it. The Marriott Library’s ProtoSpace has recently completed a 3-year project to research, fund and install a high-resolution Data Visualization Wall (Vis Wall) 

Located in ProtoSpace 2751, at the north end of Level 2, the Vis Wall is the library’s newest dynamic, hands-on learning tool that will enhance research, encourage active learning and bolster collaboration between faculty and students. The Vis Wall is intended for individuals working on research projects, teaching one-time class sessions and presenting scholarly projects & creative works.  

The Vis Wall is made up of a grid of 4K monitors with minimal borders to provide a near seamless experience. Users can simultaneously present multiple, large-scale media sources in a variety of configurations across the digital display.  

With its ability to load and visualize very large imagery and data sets, the Vis Wall provides a high-speed method for content manipulation and interaction without lag or degradation. In turn, this better enables researchers, lecturers and students to apply deeper analysis, consider new perspectives and draw conclusions that bridge inquiry and exploration across multiple disciplines.  

The Data Visualization Wall has space for multiple presentations across its 18 screens.

The Vis Wall was designed with several use case scenarios in mind: 

  • Presenting multiple sources (analog, digital, web browser and IP-based; images, video, live streams) simultaneously across the 170 sq. ft. visualization wall. 
  • Loading high-resolution media – such as DNA strand renderings, deep space photogrammetry or streaming video – while viewing and interacting with them in 4K resolution. 
  • Using preset display templates or resizing and moving content windows on the fly. 
  • Plugging-in personal laptops or mobile devices as separate display sources.
