The VisBlock product is a basic building block for very high resolution displays. VisBlocks are stackable and have a zero edge screen. This allows groups of VisBlocks to be arranged in various display configurations with no border between blocks. The small screen size gives the VisBlock high pixel density, allowing it to be used to create extremely high resolution displays. The small size also allows groups of VisBlocks to be easily reconfigured or transported.
VisBlocks are perfect for rapid experimentation with different display configurations such as planar displays of different sizes and aspect ratios, faceted displays, horizontal tabletop displays, and any combinations of the above.
Much like a VisWall, a display made of VisBlocks allows small groups of people to collaboratively examine incredibly detailed imagery or incredible amounts of information at once.
Pictured on this page are 18 VisBlocks from the Gigapixel Lab at Virginia Tech. Each VisBlock is WXGA resolution (1280x720) for an aggregate resolution of over 16 million pixels. Read more about VisBlock configurations below.
In addition to the standard VisBlock, we are available for development of custom block size and resolution for customers with special needs.
The VisBlock product is a basic building block for very high resolution displays. VisBlocks are stackable and have a zero edge screen, allowing them to be quickly set up in a variety of display configurations. Shown here are just a few of the possibilities.
The diagrams below represent the standard VisBlock (1280x720 resolution, 24"x13.5" screen size). Other screen sizes and resolutions are available:
Optional rolling stands allow columns of VisBlocks to be easily moved about to create various planar and curved display configurations:
