The emergence of large displays holds the promise of basking us in rich and dynamic visual landscapes of information, art, and entertainment. How will our viewing and interaction experiences change when large displays are introduced in our workplace, home, and commercial settings? What technology is needed to implement this vision? This special issue on large displays attempts to provide a sample of the research being conducted in this domain.
Large wall-sized displays are becoming for affordable and widespread throughout the design, education, business, and entertainment industries. Such displays can be used for highly technical visualization work such as scientific visualization of a large data set, process control, or technical design. At Autodesk Research, we are investigating these types of applications and exploring design solutions to the unique interaction challenges which large wall-sized display configurations present.
