The Immersive Visualization Laboratory at the Qualcomm Institute
Event date:  July 3, 2015 10:00 AM  to 11:00 AM

Talk Abstract
The focus of the research at the Immersive Visualization Laboratory at UCSD's Qualcomm Institute is on novel virtual reality (VR) software applications. The laboratory has access to some of the world's most advanced immersive visualization systems, such as the StarCAVE, NexCAVE, TourCAVE, or WAVE. More recently, we included consumer HMDs such as the Oculus Rift, and used Unity 3D and the Unreal Engine as alternatives to our in-house developed VR software CalVR.

This presentation will give an overview on the activities of the laboratory and introduce some of our more recent virtual reality applications such as stereo panorama capturing and display, point cloud visualization, and visual analytics.
