Electric Picture Upgrades STAR Center with Long-life LED Projectors

ATLANTA, GA – (November 17, 2015) – Electric Picture Display Systems installed nine M-Vision WUXGA LED projectors from Digital Projection International (DPI) at STAR Center in Dania, Florida on the facility’s docking bridge simulator. Mounted in portrait mode, the LED projectors maintained the 270 degree HFOV and increased the vertical field of view by replacing legacy 3-chip, lamp-based DLP projectors that were installed many years ago on the system. Electric Picture incorporated Scalable Display Technologies’ automated warp and blend alignment along with its Mantis motorized optical masking system with the M-Vision units to provide a seamless display for day or night training.

R.P. Higgins, President of Electric Picture, commented, “I felt that the M-Vision LED projector would maintain a reliable vivid image for years to come at a good value for the display system upgrade to the side bridge trainer at STAR Center. The demo at the site showed the projector was more than bright enough to replace the previous 3-chip DLP projectors and the M-Vision LED meshes well with both our Mantis optical masking system and the Scalable Display alignment system.”

The STAR (Simulation Training Assessment & Research) Center located at Dania Beach, Florida has more than a dozen simulators and possesses some of the most advanced marine simulation capabilities in the United States. The simulators, programmed and run by operators and technicians from a control room, are interactive, allowing for realtime full mission exercises.

DPI will demonstrate its suite of solid-state projection solutions, in booth #970 at I/ITSEC 2015 in Orlando, Florida, from November 30 – December 4, 2015.

Electric Picture will demonstrate a multi-channel M-Vision LED projection system in booth #1288 at I/ITSEC 2015 in Orlando, Florida, from November 30 - December 4, 2015.
