Control Room


Control Room equipment typically falls into 2 general categories:


Video Wall Display Enclosures / Cubes


Video Wall Controllers



A “video cube” is comprised of 2 primary components.


Enclosure


Projector



Enclosures are available with screens from 50” all the way to 100”
diagonal



Supported screen resolutions include XGA, SXGA+ and 1080HD
depending on specific enclosure model

Video Cube Projectors fall under 2 primary “series”:


RPMX /RPMSP Series (7 models) for small to mid
-
size cubes 50”


84”


DLV Series (4 models) for larger sized cubes 72”


100”



The Series name denotes the maximum resolution of the cube projector:


RPMX projectors are XGA (1280x1024)


RPMSP projectors are SXGA+ (1400x1050)



The individual model name will identify the specific lamp configuration.

The DLV Series of projector was designed to efficiently utilize the
larger sized cubes ranging 72” diagonal up to 100” diagonal



2 basic models of the DLV are available:


DLV1400 is SXGA+ (1400x1050)


DLV1920 is full HD (1920x1080)



The DLV Series of projector is also available with either a 500W
xenon lamp or dual (redundant) 200W mercury lamps

3D/VR applications can range from bringing perspective to
computer
-
aided design (CAD) drawings/designs, to simulating a
real world environment that can be viewed from all angles and
experienced in a state of total immersion.





Spatially immersive displays use multi
-
sided rooms that you walk
into, and an "immersive theater" or "immersive wall" that uses a
large flat or curved screen that completely fills your peripheral
vision.





VR can also display real
-
world objects that cannot normally be
seen, such as the shapes of molecules, air and fluid dynamics
and weather patterns.

Advanced Visualization


The creation of an “Advanced Visualization” environment requires
(3) key components:



Projection System


Stereo Video Converter


Advanced Software Tools



The projection is accomplished using the Christie Mirage series of
digital projectors.

Mirage product line of projectors contains 3 different series:


HD (1920x1080)


WU (1920x1200)


S+ (1400x1050)



Range from 2900 ANSI Lumen to 18,000 ANSI Lumen



All models are 3chip
-
DLP



All models utilize replaceable xenon lamp module (pre

Much like other Christie product lines, the model name contains
valuable information about the projector:

Christie Twist™ Edge Blending & Image Warping Solution



Christie Twist™ is an easy
-
to
-
use tool to manage complex arrayed
projectors that allows users to create seamless images on flat,
curved or cylindrical surfaces.



Christie Twist™ is a dedicated, purpose
-
built hardware and software
solution that enables full image warping and advanced edge
-
blending through the control of a Graphic User Interface.





By manipulating geometry and blending, this tool allows pixels to be
mapped to virtually any projection surface with proper geometry and
perfect pixel
-
to
-
pixel alignment.

AutoCal




As part of Christie’s
TrueIMAGE

Integrated Tools, our automatic
display system calibration can calibrate almost any arrayed
projection display, from flat to cylindrical to spherical, and adjust it to
its original optimized viewing configuration.



A checkbox interface makes interaction user
-
friendly, allowing users
to re
-
calibrate both geometry and blending



The display calibration solution offers reduced location resource
requirements and increased customer independence in terms of
maintaining your multi
-
projector displays.

Advanced Color™



Christie Advanced Color™ uses an automatically guided process
that enables advanced color matching regardless of the complexity
of the display.




Using a precision light meter, multiple measurements of each
projector are taken and fed directly into the computer for an accurate
measurement of the actual output of the display.


The computer
performs the calculations and places the color mapping information
on the projectors


that information stays on the projector until you
choose to re
-
tweak the system.

Designed for use in static or motion platform applications, Christie’s
optical blend solution is engaged or disengaged depending on the
intensity of the image.

The challenge


no single projector is close to having enough
resolution to accomplish this task. The only way to accomplish
eye
-
limiting resolution is to deploy an array of projectors.



Christie provides high
-
performance “real world” visual display
solutions for these simulations.



Factors such as geometry, image blending and warping,
resolution, color and brightness uniformity, and latency are key
criteria that must be addressed when designing simulation display
solutions.
