Challenge Accepted

We thrive on challenges and goals that can’t be accomplished with pre-configured audio visual (AV) and virtual reality (VR) solutions. Intricate workflows, massive data, clustered graphics computing, multi-user demands, content needs, and/or physical space configurations that are too complex for standard technology solutions are our playgrounds.

Clients come to us when other integrators can’t or won’t accept the challenge of their complex requirements. Some integrators can only deliver a solution that achieves part of a client’s objectives. We’re different. Our clients’ unique workflows, industry niches, and strategic objectives inspire us to achieve unprecedented audio visual innovations.

From data visualization laboratories to state-of-the-art automotive design studios, Mechdyne excels at the audacious. And multiple world-first innovations testify to the ingenuity of our teams. Every day, we bend technology to our will, creating create custom audio visual, immersive, and virtual reality solutions that extend the boundaries of human understanding. Just tell us what you want to achieve, and together we’ll embark on the journey from conception to creation.

Achieving the Unprecedented

Creating a first-of-its-kind solution is never our goal; it’s simply what happens when original thinking is applied to unique challenges. Over the course of our company’s history, we have amassed a remarkable record of world-first achievements – a roster all the more impressive because the novelty of these solutions is matched by their ability to enable new ways to work and experience information.

This is the Mechdyne difference: Where others run from complexity, we embrace it. Confronted with a barrier, we seek to scale it. And when there’s no blueprint for what needs to be done, we’ll create one. That’s how we look at the world, and how we make our mark in it.

We also look beyond immediate needs, considering future workflows and designing systems for longevity. 100 million pixel immersive environments we designed and installed more than 15 years ago are still operational and relevant today.

We can talk about some of the immersive environments we have created; some we can’t (but suffice to say they are really pretty cool).

Carnegie Immersive Visualization System

Workspace of the Future

Carnegie VizLab

Imagine standing in front of a wave of data and probing the mysteries of the universe’s most-ancient galaxies side-by-side with swirling, colorful simulations of galaxy formation—seeing what aligns with expectations and what needs further interrogation. A portal to fake universes may sound like science fiction, but it is now a reality at the Carnegie Observatories.


  • 12-ft. High x 17-ft. wide
  • Interactive virtual reality
  • Half-pipe design curves above viewers 162 degrees
  • 72.5 million pixels
The Workspace of the Future

C6 Six-Sided Virtual Reality CAVE

Mechdyne’s C6 is one of the most impressive virtual reality environments in the world; the 100 million pixel, six-sided C6 at Iowa State University’s Virtual Reality Applications Center (VRAC).

C6 Features

  • The most detailed, realist virtual imagery ever in the USA.
  • 100 million pixels (16 times more than typical CAVE systems)

VRAC Current Use Cases

  • Genetic Research
  • Engineering Design Reviews
  • Virtual Battlespace Simulations
  • Atomic Microscope Image Analysis
C6 Case Study
Mechdyne - Worlds Highest Resolution CAVE


Mechdyne installed the 4K 6-sided CAVE in the Geometric Modeling and Scientific Visualization Research Center (GM&SVRC) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia.  


  • Displays 100 million pixel images for the viewer’s left eye and 100 million pixels for the right eye to produce the 3D effect.
  • Imagery is projected by 24 advanced Sony SXRD projectors each with 4K resolution (four per wall on the 10′ square wall screens).
  • Images are generated by a custom-designed visualization computing cluster with 96 channels of graphics output at 2048 x 1080 pixels each.
  • The room includes a custom-designed spatial audio system, developed in conjunction with Meyer Sound, to create an acoustic experience that mimics reality like no other system before.

Alliance Manchester Business School

Some data sets are so complex it’s hard to wrap one’s mind around them. So Mechdyne and Alliance Manchester Business School implemented a 3D visualization facility that literally wraps data around the user.

The Data Visualization Observator (DVO) Features

  • 72 full HD screens, enabling 3D visualization of data with laser-sharp definition, in a 320° cylindrical matrix that surrounds users without confining them.
  • Unmatched image clarity.
  • Ultra-fast responsiveness.
  • Multi-use case capabilities.

Potential Use Cases

  • INDUSTRY 4.0: Simulating innovative mechanisms for the flexible routing of materials through a factory with a complex layout
  • HEALTH SCIENCES: Visualising health data and immersive observations of brain signals and anatomical models
  • ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES: Linking air quality simulations and real-time traffic flows to reduce pollution levels
  • MARKETING: Observation of customer behavior in a simulated retail environment under controlled conditions
  • FINANCE TECHNOLOGY: Visualising monetary flows and stock market behaviors

University of Birmingham Digital Humanities Hub

University of Birmingham

The University of Birmingham had the primary goal of using interactive technology to bring people together to encourage interaction and conversations about history. They wanted to organize content based on what the public wanted to see instead of what leadership thought the public wanted to see.

Mechdyne and the university partnered to create the Digital Humanities Hub to fuse research and exhibition space. Instead of consistently having to refresh their content, the museum provided access to all materials and archives that were scanned and cataloged in 2D and 3D formats. In the exhibition space, visitors virtually accessed artifacts and interacted with history:

  • On touchscreen tables.
  • With wall displays.
  • Using tablets.
  • Through gestures, users could rotate, manipulate, and zoom in and out on each artifact.

Bringing in the research aspect, the Hub invited visitors to wear motion-tracking headwear and glasses. As each person interacted with artifacts, a researcher collected statistics on which exhibits garnered the most interest. Their hope was to take these insights and begin curating more successful museum exhibits.

Humanities & Virtual Reality


BP’s vision included two central Learning Centers, one in Houston and one in the UK, along with several other remote High-Definition Distance Learning environments placed strategically around the world. These high-quality training centers not only have distance learning capabilities that stream classes from one site to another but also provide specialized technologies that help facilitate the educational experience. Mechdyne worked with BP to design and implement technology that would allow BP’s experienced engineers to transfer their knowledge on to newer colleagues in a high-definition, interactive, and collaborative environment.


  • Technology that supports long-distance learning & knowledge transfer.
  • Collaboration between campuses & across international borders.
