This paper describes the design, implementation, and evaluation of the CABIN immersive multiscreen display. CABIN consists of five screens that surround users, and one of the five, the floor screen, is made of tempered glass able to support the users' weight. In CABIN, computer graphics images and video images can be projected. By using a five-screen configuration, the user is able to look at three-dimensional objects from various directions, as well as look around a wide area of the virtual world. A quantitative evaluation showed that multiple screens are indispensable to support a large area of viewpoint change for the purpose of displaying three-dimensional objects. In addition, distortion of the generated virtual space was evaluated. From the experimental results, the user is able to perceive space accurately with little distortion when standing near the center of the display space.
