Video Wall

About

The SEEC video wall, located in the south atrium, is made up of nine 55-inch 1080p (aka Full HD, 1920x1080) displays arranged in 3x3 format. The resulting screen (canvas) is 165-inches in 16:9 format (aspect ratio approximately 1.78:1). The canvas is 5760 pixels wide by 3240 pixels high, this equates to a native 6K UHD resolution (18.7 megapixels).

Content is configured and delivered to the video wall using Matrox MuraControl for Windows video wall management software. A single layout can be displayed at a time. Layouts contain windows and windows contain sources. The software treats the video wall as a single screen, just like the screen for your computer. Windows can be positioned anywhere, they can overlap, and they can be cropped. Sources and layouts can be scheduled to cycle at set intervals.

The video wall is administered and programmed by SEEC administrative staff. The wall is meant to be a resource for all SEEC partners in supporting and fulfilling the SEEC vision. Please contact SEEC staff if you have content you would like to display, suggestions for content, event use or any other video wall related inquiries.

SEEC staff cannot create your content. We can advise on best practices, but we only create and managed the layouts. All requests are subject to approval and feasibility.

SOS Explorer™ (SOSx)

SOS Explorer™ (SOSx) is a flat screen version of the widely popular Science On a Sphere® (SOS). The revolutionary software takes SOS datasets, usually only seen on a 6-foot sphere in large museum spaces, and makes them more accessible. Animated images such as atmospheric storms, climate change, and ocean temperature can be shown in SOSx, which explains sometimes complex environmental processes in a way that is simultaneously intuitive and captivating.

SEEC has licensed SOSx from NOAA. Presented in the dual screen set-up, the interactive visualizations are displayed on the touchscreen and also mirrored on the video wall for others to view. Colorbars, labels, and text boxes are shown on the video wall only, while the search window and other user interfaces show up only on the touchscreen. The result is an exhibit that can be controlled by one person and enjoyed by many.
