The Highly Interactive Parallelized Display Wall (HIPerWall) in Calit2’s Visualization Lab has been transforming enormous research datasets into super-high-resolution images since 2005. Now, a licensing agreement makes the custom display-wall software available to the public. UC Irvine and the UCI division of Calit2 signed an exclusive agreement with spinoff company Hiperwall, Inc. to license the software for commercial use. Hiperwall Inc., in turn, signed an agreement with Samsung Electronics to distribute the video wall technology via its network of worldwide sales and marketing subsidiaries. The underlying technology, which allows extremely large datasets to easily be viewed and manipulated on huge, grid-based displays, was developed at Calit2 for research purposes.
