Visualisation Cluster

The 5-node Visualisation Cluster at HPC/V
The 8-node Visualisation Cluster

The current Visualisation Cluster is the driving force behind the Reality Theatre. The cluster consists of 8 high-end HP workstations (xw8600) in a master-slave setup:

  • The master node is used for user input
  • Each slave node delivers 3D images to one projector in the Reality Theatre
  • Special genlocking hardware is used to synchronize the images produced by the nodes.
  • One of the machines is running Windows (the others all use Linux) to produce a single giant desktop.
