Princeton's scalable display wall project explores building and using a large-format display with commodity components. The prototype system has been operational since March 1998. Our goal is to construct a collaborative space that fully exploits a large-format display system with immersive sound and natural user interfaces. Our prototype system is built with low-cost commodity components: a cluster of PCs, PC graphics accelerators, consumer video and sound equipment, and portable presentation projectors. This approach has the advantages of low cost and of tracking technology well, as high-volume commodity components typically have better price-performance ratios and improve at faster rates than special-purpose hardware. We report our early experiences in building and using the display wall system. In particular, we describe our approach to research challenges in several specific research areas, including seamless tiling, parallel rendering, parallel data visualization, parallel MPEG decoding, layered multiresolution video input, multichannel immersive sound, user interfaces, application tools, and content creation
