The HIVE: Stanford’s Immersive Visualization Environment

The HANA Immersive Visualization Environment (HIVE) features a 10-foot-tall by 24-feet-wide display with 13440x5400 resolution and 72 million total active pixels.  Researchers may use multiple displays simultaneously to investigate various aspects of data collection, simulation, and visualization and to zoom in to see detail at previously unheard-of-levels.
