Sussex, England — 16 November 2017 — GBvi, an industry leader in the development of high performance projector optical blending solutions for out-the-window simulation and training, will be launching two new optical blend technologies at I/ITSEC 2017 in Orlando, Florida, from November 27th to December 1st. On the GBvi stand (#2736), conference attendees can see a live demonstration of two innovative new products – Chronos Greyscale and Chronos Rewind.
GBvi’s Chronos range of optical blending solutions enable display system integrators to achieve an even black level across multi-channel projection displays, realising the maximum dynamic range and enhancing the perception of life-like imagery.
Two new product additions to the Chronos range will be premiered for the first time by GBvi at IITSEC with on-stand demonstrations at the show.
Chronos Greyscale is the new specialist GBvi optical blend technology that addresses the ‘small 4K’ and 8K class of projection systems where some optical trade-offs are most challenging, particularly with laser-phosphor illumination.
Chronos Greyscale is qualified for use with LED and laser phosphor projectors .
“Use of Auto-Alignment (AA) systems for projection display calibration is becoming universal.” Geoff Blackham, founder and managing director of GBvi, explains. “While these systems produce excellent results, some perform best after removal of the blend masks from the light path to enable alignment and calibration to take place.”
Designed for use with a broad range of digital displays, Chronos Rewind addresses this issue, using an actuated platform and simple trigger interface to move the blend mask to and from the projector lens as required in a carefully controlled and precise manner.
This process allows for the blend to be retracted from the lens, auto calibration to be completed, and for the blend mask to be returned to its original, correct position.
Chronos Rewind allows for AA systems to be integrated alongside our Chronos optical blend masks as part of multi-channel displays.
“Our expertise in the field of projection display systems means we can provide an unrivalled service, helping customers with the whole display challenge – not confining our input to the blending alone.” says Blackham.
GBvi’s optical blending technology enables integrators to provide display systems which are free from the visual issues caused by digital blending. This means no ‘double-bright’ overlap regions, and no impact to contrast or dynamic range, as black level infill is no longer necessary to match blend brightnesses.
Chronos has been successfully implemented on WUXGA, WQXGA and 4K single-chip DLP, WUXGA and 4K 3-chip DLP and 4K LCoS projectors, including lamp, laser-phosphor and LED illuminated models.
