ABOUT THE SPACE
The Visualization Studio provides campus-wide access to augmented/virtual reality development workstations and equipment, and the space to engage with it. It is a multidisciplinary space, engaging a wide array of students, and creating partnerships with many of the schools and colleges found on campus, from Engineering to Art & Design.
While we can occasionally accommodate reservations for workshops or special events, access to the studio is intended to be open to all on a walk-in basis.

All workstations in the Visualization Studio are equipped with the latest Meta Quest Pro headsets. These can operate standalone or tethered to a PC for PC VR capabilities. The Meta Quest Pro features outward facing cameras for tracking, pancake lenses rendering 1800 x 1920 pixels per eye, adjustable ergonomic headband, and touch controllers.
Visualization Studio workstations are all outfitted with the latest development software including a plethora of 3D modeling packages, game engines like Unity or Unreal Engine, 3ds Max Interactive, Enscape and our own in-house VR rendering software, Jugular. The space is designed to give students, staff and faculty access to cutting edge equipment and expert staff that are able to orient them to these new technologies and pipelines.
