About the HIVE

The HANA Immersive Visualization Environment (HIVE), was built in partnership between the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME), the Army High Performance Computing Research Center (AHPCRC), and with the generous support of SAP.  Located in Huang 050, the HIVE may be reserved by Stanford faculty, students, and staff, free of charge, for research visualization projects and courses.

The HIVE features a 10-foot-tall by 24-feet-wide display with 13440x5400 resolution and 72 million total active pixels.  Researchers may use multiple displays simultaneously to investigate various aspects of data collection, simulation, and visualization and to zoom in to see detail at previously unheard-of-levels.
