Data visualization technologies and high performance computing continue to evolve at a disruptive pace. The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has a unique history of deploying advanced visualization solutions to meet the growing challenges of big data analysis. This presentation will explore how immersive display technologies have been applied to prior high performance computing challenges and how current strategies are positioning the OLCF for future opportunities in remote visualization, augmented reality, and embedded light field displays. This presentation will also discuss the structure and format of current data and the need to develop efficient containers and delivery systems for these advanced visualization systems.
