Oversize Displays

The Collaboratory has three 85" 4K (3840x2160) displays and one projector. Researchers working from Collaboratory workstations can project their work onto any of these displays. Devices can also be wirelessly connected to the monitors using the MirrorOp application. See Collaboratory staff for assistance with showing work on these displays.
