The Mathers Museum of World Cultures is currently hosting an Indiana University IQ-Wall, developed by the UITS Advanced Visualization Lab to promote innovative research and education using information-rich, ultra-resolution displays. The installation in the Mathers Museum of World Cultures is a collaborative effort of the Mathers Museum of World Cultures and the Advanced Visualization Lab, with assistance from the IU Libraries. The Advanced Visualization Lab at IU is a unit of the Research Technologies division of UITS; Research Technologies is a Pervasive Technology Institute Cyberinfrastructure and Service Center. Available for use by IU faculty, students, and staff, the IQ-Wall consists of 12 high-resolution monitors with a total of 12.5 million pixels. The device is managed via a Windows 7 computer, and has an ease of operation comparable to most desktops and laptops. More information on the device, its uses, and scheduling is available at MMWC IQ-Wall.
