AVIE-SC projector configuration

The AVIE-SC system (or Semicircular) is installed in the Expanded Perception & Interaction Centre (EPICentre) on the UNSW Paddington campus of the Faculty of Art and Design. It is a 7m wide x 3.2m high stand alone 160 degree 3D curved screen. It includes a 3D stereoscopic projection system, a multi-channel audio system and a motion capture and tracking system articulated to a series of control and image generators. It forms a central visualisation platform in iCinema for research, teaching and exhibition in the fields of immersive environments, physical/virtual interactivity and networked collaboration. The platform is articulated to the research, teaching and exhibition programs at UNSW Faculties of: Art and Design, Arts and Social Sciences, Engineering, Science along with NIDA. It is networked with the EPICylinder in EPICentre and the two AVIE systems on the Kensington campus. Research undertaken is programmatically focused on preliminary studies for development of competitive grant applications. Teaching is programmatically focused on interdisciplinary content spanning creative arts and technology. Exhibitions are programmatically focused on the outcomes of the research and teaching.
