Visualization Hub Technology

The iEXCEL Visualization Hub (VizHub) is located in the Michael F. Sorrell Center for Health Science Education and adjacent to the Sorrell Clinical Simulation Lab. The iEXCEL VizHub is equipped with 2D/3D and AR/VR technologies. Early acquisition of these technologies helps educators, learners and researchers begin the journey into visualization and prepares them for the opportunities available when the Davis Global Center opens. 

3D

Interactive Digital iWall – a 2D curved wall that consists of 12 touch screens. This experiential tool enables new ways of thinking and allows users to present content in real time, transforming collaboration and communication.

3D 3D CADWall – an interactive and collaborative, multi-channel 3D high-resolution display wall. Enhancing learning and research, this virtual immersive reality environment allows users to view high-definition images in 3D and learn new skills. For example, users can manipulate images of the human body such as cells and organs to increase understanding.
3D

iBench – enables easy, fast and reliable interactions with virtual objects and environments. This stereoscopic 3D system is intuitive and responsive to the user’s actions, and it can display the most realistic 3D objects. 

3D

iMirror – an innovative augmented reality (AR) and gesture input-based solution for experiential learning. Users can see how internal organs function superimposed on their own body or learn via a gesture-based ‘game’ to further engagement.

3D HoloLens – a fully self-contained computer enabling interaction with high‑definition holograms. Users are able to manipulate holograms with gestures, communicate with apps using their voice and navigate with a glance. This form of mixed reality (AR/VR) allows users to interact with both digital content and the physical world around them by giving holograms real-world context and scale.
3D

Head-Mounted Displays (HMDs) – 3D head-mounted augmented reality (AR) displays with 360° capabilities creating unprecedented possibilities for students, faculty and health care professionals to visualize challenging concepts. For instance, users could view and manipulate complex compounds and molecules in microscopic detail when learning biochemistry.
