Immersive Display Solutions, Inc. (IDSI) announced that it has selected the Barco F70 for its advanced dome display project. Using thirteen F70-4K6 projectors per dome and featuring the powerful Barco Pulse electronics processing platform and unique Single Step Processing (SSP) pixel-shifting technology, the integrated solution from IDSI will support high-performance fast jet pilot training. This selection continues the successful relationship which has been built between IDSI and Barco over many years and has produced some of the highest quality display systems in the industry. Barco F70-4K6 display projector The F70-4K6 is a high performance, robust laser-phosphor projector with sealed optics and minimal number of moving components inside. This construction enables rugged performance that ensures stability and predictability over the 60,000-hour lifetime of the product. 4K resolution is achieved using the high bandwidth Barco Pulse electronics platform and the proprietary SSP technology. All this leads to the delivery of exceptionally sharp and detailed dynamic imagery allowing trainees to detect moving objects at long distances and totally immersing them into the perfect simulation experience. The team at IDSI is well-respected throughout the industry for their precision, quality, and low-risk approach to program requirements “Our relationship with Barco is built on performance, support, and trust,” says George Forbes, President and founder of IDSI. “When we decide on which projector to use for a project, we consider much more than the technical performance- which has to be there. We know we can rely on Barco, and that the entire Barco Simulation team from top-down is behind us, and that is a big factor in who we choose to partner with.” IDSI-Barco partnership “The team at IDSI is well-respected throughout the industry for their precision, quality, and low-risk approach to program requirements,” says Dave Fluegeman, VP, Simulation at Barco. “Our teams have always integrated very well, and when there is a seamless approach and singular focus to a project, the likelihood of success is always very high.” Recently IDSI won the ‘Small Business of the Year’ award after careful selection by the MS&T judging panel and votes by the simulation and training industry. The honor was awarded for their way of leveraging human capital, innovation and agility to grow and meet client needs, all while cultivating and growing technical and social influence in the community. The Barco F70-4K6 in turn received an honorable mention as an Outstanding Innovative Product that has positively impacted the client’s ‘way of doing business.’
Barco, a projection solutions provider for the global training & simulation market, is proud to launch the new F80 series. This versatile and reliable projector series ensures enhanced brightness and clarity for land-based training applications. Superior image quality, unprecedented business value and ultimate installation flexibility are the hallmarks of the F80 series. Available with WQXGA (F80-Q7) or 4K UHD (F80-4K7) resolution, the F80 series delivers stunning imagery with highly saturated colors that allow for accurate color reproduction always. Flexible projection configurations With its wide array of all-glass lenses and wide lens shift ranges, the F80 series accommodates almost any projector configuration. Together with the ultra-robust F70 series and ultra-bright F90 series, the F80 completes Barco’s F-range, which fits the projection needs of most simulation applications and budgets. The F80 series builds on the fundamentals of the other Barco F-series laser phosphor projectors, namely installation freedom, flexibility and 4K resolution. For users, this translates as image uniformity, increased uptime and very low maintenance (as no lamps need to be replaced). Barco Pulse Single Step Processing The constant brightness and long-life color performance is further bolstered by Barco Pulse’s unique Single Step Processing (SSPTM) technology that delivers 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) resolution in only one step. This means that the simulator systems offer a sharper image and much higher overall image quality with less latency compared to other products on the market. Dave Fluegeman, Director of Barco’s Simulation division, comments: "The versatile F80 series is reliable, flexible, cost-efficient and easy to set up and use, and projects superb colors at up to 4K UHD resolution. This makes the F80 the perfect fit for individual skills and team training applications, as well as other commercial and military programs that require the needed precision for an unmatched business value.”
A provider of visualisation technology for the simulation market, Barco, and display solution provider and integrator, project: syntropy, are jointly showcasing an impressive multi-channel dome visual solution at ITEC 2017, Rotterdam, 16-18 May. The solution presents the Barco F70-4K6 projector to the training and simulation market for the first time in Europe. The two companies have also joined forces with system partners domeprojection.com and Quantum3D. The result clearly shows the benefits of combining the strengths of leaders in their field. Barco F70-4K6 multi-channel projector Bringing the best possible training experience to life demands the best technology and expertise attainable. The visualisation system must include a realistic scenario and software, a high-quality screen and structure, and the integration expertise to bring it all together. In order to deliver this experience, a number of manufacturers—all leaders in their field of expertise—have bundled their efforts to showcase a prime flight simulator system at ITEC. The visual display system was created by systems integrator, project: syntropy, and runs on a dome screen with a diameter of 4 meters (13.12 feet). HFOV is 180°, and VFOV is +100°/-30°. The visualisation system consists of the newly launched Barco F70-4K6 projectors in a 6-channel setup—shown for the first time to the training and simulation community in Europe. Camera-based auto-calibration by domeprojection.com makes sure that the system performs optimally at all times. The scenario was created by Quantum3D and runs on their image generator. Delivering high-resolution visuals “The training and simulation market is increasingly becoming a hyper-focused market, demanding great expertise in every aspect of the implementation,” says Christoph Bode from project: syntropy. “Teaming up with a number of market leaders is the best guarantee to deliver our customers the quality they need. Barco’s F70-4K6 is bringing us high resolution, great flexibility, and the simulation features that are necessary to satisfy this market’s stringent requirements. This projector will be perfect for our most demanding projects—whether they’re for day or night training.” “Fully integrated demonstrations such as this are much more than trade show glitter—potential customers, and the entire industry, gain a high degree of confidence from seeing the combined technical achievements of project: syntrophy, Barco, and Quantum3D and immediately view us as a highly-capable team and partner,” adds Dave Fluegeman, VP, Simulation for Barco. The visual display system will be showcased at ITEC 2017, from 16th – 18th May, at Ahoy in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, at the project: syntropy booth (#41b).
