High Lumens Solution
Chronos Metal Foil mask technology is a recent introduction to the GBvi product range, initially designed for use with low-cost UST projection systems, employing mask actuation systems to switch between day and night/dusk display modes.
Chronos Foil is a highly robust solution which differs from other foil solutions in that it does not use a sawtooth or comb profile, but instead migrates our pattern algorithms that have been used for high-quality glass and film blend masks.
As such, surprisingly good optical blending is achieved, enabling its use into dusk & dawn as well as night scenes. It has recently been installed with excellent results into a marine simulation application that employed LCoS UST projectors – a particularly challenging combination.
Being a metal substrate, Chronos Foil can also be a successful lower-cost option for use with very high brightness projectors, as no substrate degradation occurs and for most scene content provides excellent results.
- No practical limit to projector light output levels.
- Lower cost.
- Independent blend edge plates possible.
- No light loss through clear aperture.
