What is Station IX?
Station IX was designed and built by Imagine 4D, a Montreal-based technology company focused on delivering the most impactful and realistic virtual simulation experience possible.
Station IX, launched in 2018, is an immersive 3D display environment designed to offer the most realistic and collaborative experience available today. Step inside and view large 3D datasets at a glance without the need for headwear of any kind. We can immerse multiple industries in Station IX – from simulation in the defense industry to training large groups to visualization applications in the construction and architectural industry.
