The Cascade 117 facilitates the collaborative and experiential approach to learning which is a hallmark of DU.  “With the Prysm video wall, we can collaborate on projects and realize data visualization in ways never before possible,” said Joe Ryan, Research Visualization Engineer at the Center for Statistics and Visualization.  “We chose Prysm’s solution because of its environmental sustainability, leading-edge technology, excellent color reproduction and beautiful appearance.”
