Excursion: aixCAVE virtual-reality environment
Visit of the virtual reality environment at the computing center of RWTH Aachen University
The aixCAVE is a five-sided immersive virtual reality environment at the Center for Computing and Communication of RWTH Aachen University. It has been constructed and installed in August 2012 by Barco N.V. in collaboration with the local Virtual Reality Group. With a size of more than 5 x 5 m2 for the rear floor projection, the system is not only the largest one worldwide, but raises the standards with respect to projection quality: using a sophisticated combination of high resolution, high brightness, brightness uniformity, specially coated screens, elaborate mechanical construction, and active stereo technology, a high level of immersion and an illusion of presence are achieved.
The aixCAVE is profitably and extensively used by numerous RWTH institutes and cooperation partners from academia and industry.
The tour is offered in English and will take about 30 minutes.
Meeting point: in front of the main entrance of the Center for Computing and Communication (Kopernikusstraße 6), RWTH Aachen University, 17:30 and 18:45
