The PowerWall, installed by ImSys, is 3200x2000mm in size and uses back-projection to display the image. It uses passive stereo to create the three dimensional image using two Dell projectors with WUXGA (1920×1200) resolution. A Core-i7 Linux-PC with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX580 graphics card is used to run our VE-Software bash.

For tracking, a two camera ARTrack system is in use with one head-tracking target and one 6DOF navigator as input devices. In order to control the hardware and to start/stop the software we use a Tablet-PC with a hand-tailored software written in C#, called ‘Ghost’.

Projects using the Powerwall are ‘InFleX’ and ‘TraCell’.

The hardware platform in use is presented in the following table:

Measures 3200x2000mm
Projectors 2x Dell (1920 x 1200)
Backprojections 3000 x 1xxx mm
Tracking ARTrack with 2 cameras
Remote Control Tablet PC
