Welcome to the Reality Deck Project website

The Reality Deck is a unique visualization facility, located at the Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (visitor information) of Stony Brook University. Supported by the National Science Foundation and Stony Brook University, the Reality Deck is the world’s first immersive gigapixel resolution display, offering more than 1.5 billion pixels. The product of years of research and engineering, the Reality Deck facility’s goal is to break barriers in data visualization and help scientists deal with the challenges presented by the massive datasets of today and tomorrow.
