UTS Data Arena

The UTS Data Arena is a 360° data visualisation facility designed for collaborative experiences.  High performance parallel computing drives a 10K stereoscopic display alongside a 16 channel audio system to create an immersive dynamic environment.

The UTS Data Arena is built to navigate huge datasets and simulated environments, explore new interfaces for interaction, and share ideas in a collective space that moves away from isolated computing practices.

The Arena can present information in ‘stereo’, allowing the audience to experience a sense of perceived visual depth.  To enhance the visual experience, the multi-channel audio system surrounding the Arena enables sound to be positioned within the 3D space.Various different controller and tracker methods allow both a single user, or an entire group, to dynamically interact with the content within the Arena.

It’s a powerful immersive facility which can help business, government, and research simplify, visualise, and interact with complex information.  Users in the Arena can surround themselves in data to observe, explore, refine, improve, discover and learn.
