ActiveCube Overview

_MWP5428ACTIVECUBE is the ultimate interactive 3D visualisation system. Over the last year Virtalis has designed and installed more multi-sided VR systems than any other company.

With installations popping up all over the globe, the Virtalis ActiveCube (our version of a CAVE) is clearly setting the industry benchmark for both price and performance.

Like the other members of the ActiveWorks range, ActiveCube combines best in class technology. Virtalis’ ActiveCubes are either four or five sided with rear projected 3D virtual environments projected using powerful, specialist projectors. They are powered by Virtalis clustering technology and are capable of running a diverse range of software packages, including Visionary Render. Universities are particularly enamoured of the immersive learning that ActiveCube provides and they tend to be multi-disciplinary spaces that blend teaching and research.

We also offer variants of the ActiveCube to enhance the immersive Virtual Reality experience, depending on use. Siemens’ first thought was to commission a multi-walled ActiveCube for its Digital Factory, but, given its Product Review and Lean Cell Design teams are up to 10 strong, they plumped for a halfway house, a bigger Virtalis ActiveWall with a projected wall and floor combined with optical tracking for group and collaborative activities.

Best in class technology

Movements within the ActiveCube’s environment are tracked using a tracking system. This added functionality alters the perspective of the visuals according to the user’s position and orientation within the scene. The hand held controller allows the immersive experience to be enhanced further. The user can navigate through the virtual world, pick and manipulate component parts in real time and make decisions on the fly.

“The fact that the ActiveCube provides lifelike peripheral vision makes it much more personal and convincing than most VR systems deployed. The additional Virtalis developed software will be a terrific bonus for the Chemistry and Geology Departments and Virtalis’ software knowledge puts them head and shoulders above the rest.”
