Seamless Cylindrical Screens for Virtual World simulation platforms

Sim Screen Division: Simulation is a proven and highly respected experience for training and gaming. Virtual World Simulation in a digital environment is solution used by Formula One race teams, military, aviation, shipping cargo operators, shipping lines and train drivers.

Today there is no industry that has not realised and implemented virtual world simulation as in an immersive environment for training. ICE AV’s screen division provides one of the crucial parts of this environment….the screen. Within the range we have rigid, panel, kitset types in a range surfaces.

From high gain single channel, multiple channel and screens designed for edge blending are all available.

Multichannel display installations are used when more than one projector is needed in a display system. Typically this is implemented to increase the Field of View (FoV) of the user moreso than can be achieved with a single projected image or where a higher resolution is required to increase the realism. Theillustration describes how the cylindrical screen will actually increase the FoV.

The greater the angle the more immersive the virtual wolrd becomes.There are a number of areas which need to be considered when undertaking a multichannel display including how the displays settings are configured on the PC, the field of view (FoV) of the display device and how the software is configured to match the display’s FoV.

Option 1 Components– 3 projectors with built-in blending and geometry. Certain projector models have this feature, however external processing is always better.- Matrox triple-head-to-go card.
Option 2 Components– 3 Professional grade projectorswin minimum XGA resolution(preferably higer).These projectors should be colour matched in the factory. Matrox triple-head-to-go card.- Edge blending / geometry software.
Option 3 Components– 3 Projectors…basically any model on the market- Edge blending / geometry software.- Matrox triple head to go card.Projectors in this category may need to be specified if very limited budget.

Cylindrical Screens
Currently we offer a few different cylindrical surface technologies such as 2 Gain and alternatively 10 Gain.These provide the option of image brilliance according to the environment, edge blending parameters and projector brightness. Screens are manufactured according to the clients needs within certain parameters. Further information available here.
