Digital video displays bring big data to life in new ways. One eye-popping example is at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA. Built in partnership with the Army High Performance Computing Research Center and open to all Stanford faculty, students and staff, the Stanford HIVE, or SAP HANA Immersive Visualization Environment, was created with the intention to provide researchers with a collaborative space. The screen allows them to display their data on a high-resolution video wall system designed by solution provider CineMassive.
