HIPerWall runs at 200 Million Pixels

The HIPerWall pictured above is capable of displaying imagery at a 200 million pixel resolution. The display measures 23 ft wide by 9 feet tall and has 50 LCD panels which appear to be the Apple 30 inch cinema displays. To make use of such a high resolution, a software app was developed and it allows Google Earth to be used on the HIPerWall. Previously, images had to be stitched together to get the huge, high resolution versions. They were not done in real time and had to be done manually which took a long time. Calit2 worked with Google to create software which could utilise the 50 displays in real time allowing researchers to do a huge amount of work and observation in a fraction of the time.
