Utilizing Consumer 3D TV Hardware for Flexible and Reconfigurable Visualization Systems
Technical Report (TUM-I1113), Technische Universität München, Germany, Jul. 1, 2011. (bib)

The availability of 3D consumer hardware offers new means for use in semi-immersive visualization systems. The smaller size of such displays compared to the volume required for back-projection systems allows using smaller spaces for the installation. The smaller scale of the displays also generates a higher flexibility for reconfiguring the display setup. The conceptual benefits of such displays come in combination with issues to be met when putting such commodity hardware into operation. With this article, we provide a broad overview about issues and solutions when integrating such hardware into scientific visualization environments. Information usually not available due to less technical support for consumer products compared to high-end systems is given and solutions for integration are presented. Together with discussion about display size, a reconfigurable visualization system is presented that can dynamically be configured to CAVE-, Power-wall-like and other setups.
