Video projectors need to be integrated into a wide range of applications, often requiring the use of ultra-wide-angle projection lenses or third party auto-alignment systems. As a result, some projectors may need less conventional forms of blending, and that’s exactly what we offer.
Our technologies have been designed to generate a perfectly seamless image across multiple projector channels and our highly flexible in-house design tools allow us to design and produce glass or film masks unique to your display for pixel-perfect projection channel edge-blending.
We have collective experience of more than 80 years in the field of displays for simulation, training, leisure and attractions. We design and produce multi-channel optical blending solutions for challenging projection environments, with no limit to display size, screen shape or projector count.
GBvi is a partner to systems designers, engineers and display system integrators – helping to overcome display challenges of complex projection systems. We fit into the ‘back end’ of a visual system, providing the last building block to complete the solution. We are able to bring our display design and technology development background into play so that we become an integral partner and team member for our customers. We also have close working partnerships with parallel companies offering complementary solutions such as image servers and auto-alignment systems. By specialising in this niche, we can enable any display or visual systems integrator to produce the best result for the end-user.
Visual innovation is at the core of our business. We continually prototype new technologies and work with unique setups that lead us to devise increasingly innovative approaches to ensure display perfection. We work very closely with all major projector manufacturers, who provide loan units for analysis and test, so we can provide the best performance at the lowest risk.
IDSI has a solid relationship with GBvi – they consistently provide us with engineering services and first-class support that extend above and beyond what they’ve been contracted to deliver.
The team’s high-performance solutions enable us to fulfil high-end simulation application requests on our most challenging projects.
On-site, they are responsive to our needs and requests in near real-time – which allows us to maintain a track record of superior customer service and support across our many customer sites and projects.
Antycip Simulation uses GBvi technologies in a range of fast-jet and helicopter simulation applications – their experience, dedication to innovation and exceptional support, help us meet the technical and design challenges clients present us with.
It’s critical to our projects, that our technology partners maintain unrivalled levels of accuracy and attention to detail… GBvi is an excellent partner, in these regards, and far exceeds our expectations.
GBvi has been a great partner in our dome projects. Even under tight constraints, the company has always delivered a quality product on-time. The blend plates we’ve received for all our projects have always produced a great result with which our end clients are very satisfied. I highly recommend GBvi.
GBvi worked with us on a set of three, seven channel display systems for some training simulators. Optical blending was a retrofit for these systems, but Geoff and Dan were very helpful and professional throughout the design process. They conducted tests with the projector model in use, supported us in conducting some display system tests prior to manufacture, and provided clear information to help us complete the electronic and mechanical integration of their product with ours. GBvi supported the installation phase both directly and remotely – including the provision of test patterns to facilitate correct alignment. Any questions we had were answered quickly.
GBvi clearly take pride in what they do and care about the overall result for the end client, they keep the big picture in mind and there are no Teflon shoulders in sight! Beyond all of this, they have proven to us that optical blending is not prohibitively expensive, especially when planned properly.
