Five-Year Anniversary Marked with New Product Development and Office Expansion

Sussex, England – 11 May 2016 – After five years of success, UK optical projection blending specialist, GBvi Limited, has completed its move into a new, larger R&D and operations building. Their line-up of proprietary solutions for multi-channel digital projection channel blending has recently been expanded to include new mechanical framework designs, improved mask algorithms for optimum levels of accuracy, alignment system advancements, projector blend mask actuation options and anti-reflection coatings.

Since 2011, GBvi has been supplying bespoke and custom-engineered optical blending systems for a range of applications including fast-jet simulation training, helicopter simulation training, ground-based military training, digital visitor attractions, themed entertainment experiences and immersive educational spaces.

To date, GBvi has supplied many bespoke optical projection blending systems to large-scale simulation and visualisation environments globally. Earlier this month, the team moved into its new, larger premises in Ditchling, Sussex, England, which accommodates more advanced design and manufacturing requirements.

Geoff Blackham, Founder and Managing Director of GBvi commented; “We are very proud of our achievements to date and are delighted to mark such an accomplishment with the opening of our new R&D and operations facility. We are repeatedly chosen by some of the most reputable simulation systems integrators, also working closely with projector manufacturers and extend our thanks to our partners and customers who have been part of our journey so far.”

GBvi will be exhibiting at ITEC 2016 in London from 17-19 May. Geoff will also be speaking at the show with a presentation titled ‘Optical Blending: Difficult yet Essential for Maximising Dynamic Range of Projection Displays’.

What is Optical Blending?

Optical Blending uses physical masking techniques to provide managed fading of multiple partially-overlapped projected images so that their images are blended together to form a larger, continuous, image.
