Summary
The UITS Advanced Visualization Lab, a Cyberinfrastructure and Service Center of the Pervasive Technology Institute, has created a set of functional, relatively low-cost displays to help tackle the advanced visualization challenges facing Indiana University faculty, staff, and students. All of these displays use commercial-off-the-shelf hardware and available software and share user-centric qualities including high interactivity, a low barrier of entry, and some level of immersion. Each display can easily be built, installed, and configured in a variety of spaces. During this talk, we will discuss the IQ-Table, a 55‰Û monitor equipped with 32-point multi-touch capabilities. We will review the existing installations on the IUB and IUPUI campuses and discuss how you can engage with the AVL to borrow or build your own IQ-Table. Finally, we will take a detailed look at the AVL's Collection Viewer software, and how to customize it to present your own content.
