Exploiting immersive visualisation environments in museums

We extend our congratulations to the all the researchers who were successful in the latest Australian Research Council (ARC) funding round. We’re particularly excited about assisting research teams involved in these two successful Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facility projects:

DomeLab – an ultra-high resolution experimental fulldome

This project will establish the first ultra-high resolution (4000 x 4000 pixels) experimental fulldome in Australia (DomeLab). This fulldome facility will provide a powerful immersive dome-based video projection environment. Partners will work collaboratively across three themes: interactive media, future museology and experimental humanities.

Through the national research services AARNet and Intersect’s research data storage infrastructure, DomeLab will extend pioneering research in aesthetic frameworks and frontier technologies to benefit artistic, cultural, museological and humanities researchers. DomeLab is designed as a touring system and will be installed throughout the country at leading institutions.

Collaborators: Australian National Maritime Museum, The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, AARNet Pty Ltd, Intersect Australia Ltd, University of Western Sydney, RMIT University, University of Canberra, The University of Western Australia, University of Tasmania, City University of Hong Kong, National Museum of Australia, Museum Victoria. Administering Organisation – The University of New South Wales

Test bed for wide-area software defined networking research

This project aims to develop a wide-area test bed, spanning ten organisations, for conducting research and experimentation in the emerging disruptive technology of Software Defined Networking (SDN). SDN is likely to bring long-term transformation to the networking industry, much like cloud computing did, by enabling dynamic virtualised elastic network services under software control.

The test bed will empower Australian researchers in network technologies and dependent applications (for example, multimedia and security) to collaboratively develop and demonstrate novel ideas at scale. This is expected to benefit Australia by giving our researchers international recognition in this nascent area, and developing a national talent pool for local industry.

Collaborators: Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, The University of Adelaide, University of Technology, Sydney, Swinburne University of Technology, Macquarie University, The University of Queensland, The Australian National University, University of Wollongong, RMIT University. Administering Organisation The University of New South Wales.
