How Visualization and Simulation Tools Help Train and Test

Data is easy to come by. But making use of that data can be a challenge. Advanced visualization helps by immersing individuals and groups into simulated environments, and make it easy for groups to collaborate and gain consensus.

In simulation environments, students and trainees can safely experience situations that happen in the real world. These virtual environments immerse participants in realistic conditions so they can practice their courses of action. A simulator can also provide for safety engineering, testing, improved performance, and education.

Read “Visualization and Simulation for Research and Collaboration,” to learn how today’s advanced technology allows for:

  • Hologram environments where even the floor is a simulated environment
  • Personal, self-contained environments
  • 3D environments that allow user interaction via motion tracking
  • Images seamlessly warped and blended on any object
  • Unprecedented image fidelity using 4K resolution

North Carolina State’s Hunt Library Continues to Amaze

When the Hunt Library at North Carolina State University had its grand opening in the spring of 2013, it marked another in a timeline of proud moments for AVI-SPL.

That’s because we integrated collaboration and visualization systems that would help redefine and expand the idea of what a library could be. It won awards. It received praise in the media. We filmed a video case story that shared the library’s vision, what it would offer guests, and why it was so special.

A Chicago High School Turns the Classroom Interactive

Camelot Education’s Chicago Excel Academy specializes in helping at-risk students earn their credits for high school graduation. To foster student engagement with subject lessons, the school wanted interactive SMART Boards in its classrooms. AVI-SPL provided and implemented those SMART Boards, and trained teachers how to use them. Watch the video below to find out why Excel was so excited about the interactive displays and how the students reacted.
