GBvi Chronos Optical Blending for multi-channel simulation displays – NVG compatibility

This video is a camera-recorded demonstration of a projected 2-channel display with seamless day to night transition as seen at I/ITSEC 2017 with a GBVI Chronos Glass: Greyscale optical blend in the middle.

Chronos optical blending has been developed to remain in place and deliver seamless blends for all scene content.

Our blend mask generation algorithms create high quality blends accepted by the toughest of simulation standards, even with bright daytime content, whilst dark scenes retain the full dynamic range possible.

Continuous time of day with seamless image blending

Blend hardware remains in place at all times, so traditional scenes with high contrast, such as dawn or dusk scenes, remain exceptional quality. No hardware transition is required between bright and dark scenes, so the training scenario can operate through CTOD conditions, or switch from day to night scenes without compromise.

Night or dark scenes make optical blending essential to extract maximum training value from your visual system.

Optical blending preserves projector dynamic range and contrast, eliminating black level infill otherwise required by digitally blended displays.

Chronos optical blending is tried and tested in NVG display systems. Using the same technology as we do on regular RGB display systems, you will get the same seamless edge blend.

Through night vision goggles on a simulated NVG projected display, you can expect to see a result similar to this demonstration
