  Fakespace Beacon DMSX+ system which we have had since 1/10/2006. This was previously driven by an SGI Prism with 4x FireGL X3 graphics pipes. Now driven from a high-end 16-core PC server running RHEL5.3 with a dual-port nVidia Quadro FX 5600 GPU. The system was re-commissioned by MechDyne in September 2009.
