VRT at Work

In 2003 ESA has opened its first immersive theatre in its ESRIN establishment in Frascati (Rome, Italy). VRT hosts an audience of 16-18 people that have the illusion of seeing the depth of an object and the feeling of being right in front of it, through the integration of stereoscopy technology, visualization software, and projection system.

stereoscopy technology
Depends from the ability of generating an appropriate pair of images for each point of view and sends them to each eye.

visualization software
The transformation, selection, or representation of data from simulations or experiments, with an implicit or explicit geometric structure, to allow the exploration, analysis, and understanding of the data.

projection system
Necessary to deliver the appropriate image to the appropriate eye.
