Paper Abstract

A 360-degree-viewable volumetric 3-D display has been developed by Actuality Systems, Inc. It has a resolution of 768 x 768 x 198, has a 24 Hz refresh rate, contains an embedded graphics processing system, and uses dithering methods to create images of 3-bit to 21-bit color. The 3-D display system is a visualization platform, comprised of a combination of hardware and software designed for ease-of-integration into existing visualization systems. The system design is briefly recounted. Key enhancements are described, such as the development of a volumetric visualization software platform. Examples are given which guide the system engineer who needs to include a volumetric display into a visualization solution.
