Onomy Labs Installs Interactive Research Wall at Moscone Center
September 18, 2002
Sun Labs Displays Story of Virtual Enterprise Networks on Research Wall

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., September 18, 2002 -- Onomy Labs Incorporated, a technology design and consulting company, today completed design, fabrication, and installation of an "Interactive Research Wall" for a SunLabs exhibit at the 2002 SunNetworks Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.  The wall was designed to used as a tool for researchers to communicate the story of their research to conference attendees, management, and ultimately to customers.

The Onomy team worked directly with the SunLabs research team to develop the story that the wall presented.  Because of the short time frame and space constraints, there needed to be a way to present a lot of complex material quickly in a very short amount of space and time, utilizing a flexible interactive medium. The Interactive Wall proved to be an ideal tool for the presenters.

Because of the tight deadlines for delivery, fabrication of the wall and the development of the content proceeded in parallel.  Here the frame materials are unpacked at the Onomy Labs building space..

Sun researchers Glen Scott, Guy Richardson, and Pete St. Pierre review the story content of the completed research wall with Onomist Anne Balsamo before the official opening of the SunNetworks conference.

"Because we are researchers ourselves, we can understand the deep and advanced technologies involved in an exciting research project like this one," said Mark Resch, CEO of Onomy Labs.  "But as designers, we are keenly aware that the messages need to be placed in a context so that non-technical audience can grasp the key ideas quickly and get excited by them.  The wall is one of the ways we have developed in which we can get both rich content and exciting presentation all together in one package."

"Visitors are coming by to ask what this display is," relates Pete St. Pierre, a researcher with SunLabs.  "But then they stay for a long time and we are able to engage them in long discussions about the technology, so we're very happy with that."
