Christie Brings High-Performance Immersive Technology to I/ITSEC 2015

Christie will be displaying a range of visualisation and simulation solutions at I/ITSEC 2015. Demonstrating two systems at its booth, Christie will feature a three-channel Christie Matrix StIM WQ projection system with Accuframe Pro and a compact spherical video trainer with a 2x2 array of Christie DWU555-GS laser phosphor projectors. Also on the booth will be the Christie QuadHD84 84in flat panel.

Officially launching at I/ITSEC is AccuFrame Pro, a unique software solution for use with Christie's Matrix StIM and SIM projectors that reduces visual artefacts that contribute to “negative training.” AccuFrame Pro targets lo-to-mid intensity content at the pixel level and
adjusts draw time, thereby reducing the smear on those pixels without compromising brightness, colour output or system latency.

I/ITSEC attendees will see a three-channel front projected display showing an air model simulation powered by FlightSafety's VITAL 1100 image generator. The air model will be displayed at 120Hz for clear images without image artefacts or perceived loss of brightness using the Christie Matrix StIM WQ scalable projection system with AccuFrame Pro software.

Christie's spherical video trainer will be in action using a 2x2 array of laser phosphor 1DLP DWU555-GS projectors featuring 5,400 lumens and 20,000 hours of low cost operation in small package. This compact trainer features several simulation integration technologies, including 360° visuals, six channel sound, and auto-alignment using Christie AutoCal, and Christie Twist LT for image warping and blending to create a seamless image on a curved immersive screen. Powered by WorldViz Vizard5 software, the spherical video trainer features real-world images and video by helicopter, hot air balloon and navy ship courtesy of AirPano, Kolor and Empire Media Group.
