Digital Projection attends Transas User Conference


Phil Laney, DP's Director of Simulation, and Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager Matt Moscato represented DP at the TRANSAS User Conference the week of July 15th. TRANSAS is a privately owned Russian company with over 2000 employees providing equipment for aviation, Marine, Railway, Defence, Oil & Gas, Municipal, and Edutainment. TRANSAS Marine simulation systems are installed in 950 training centers in 91 countries.

270 attendees from 47 countries were in attendance. This conference was hosted by the TRANSAS Marine maritime simulation group of TRANSAS which had TRANSAS employees and distributors from around the world meet with their customers from around the world. TRANSAS also invited vendors as co-hosts, of which DP was one of a select few.

Day 1 was held at MITAGS where eight TITAN 660 sx+ projectors are installed on a Full Mission Bridge (FMB) simulator. Tours of the FMB were open to attendees. On Day 2, the conference moved to the Calhoon-MEBA. Bridge 1 at Calhoon-MEBA was made available for projector demos by Digital Projection throughout Day 2 and the morning of Day 3. Bridge 1 is a FMB simulator with a 7m radius. DP showed the HIGHlite WUXGA, HIGHlite 1080p, TITAN LED and M-Vision WUXGA LED out the windows of Bridge 1. Laney and Moscato also demonstrated the M-Vision 400 in dedicated booth space in the exhibit hall. Needless to say, all of the products were very well received.

STAR Center Maritime Training School

STAR Center relies on Digital Projection

STAR Center upgrades world-renowned maritime simulator for unparalleled 360 degree training experience

DP, Scalable Display Technologies, a leading provider of software for automatic edge-blending, and Electric Picture, a leading systems integrator recently collaborated on a significant system upgrade to STAR Center's maritime training simulator in Dania Beach, FL. This upgrade resulted in increased imagery resolution and vertical coverage, improved color management and made overall system maintenance more efficient.

STAR Center relies on Digital Projection

In operation since 1993, STAR Center (Simulation, Training, Assessment & Research) is regarded internationally as a top destination for ocean-going and inland professional maritime training and research. A division of the AMO Safety and Education Plan, STAR Center is the primary training provider for the U.S. merchant marine officers represented by American Maritime Officers.

At a time when some training facilities are compromising on overall experience by implementing flat-panel based simulators, STAR Center's 16' tall, 360° immersive ship bridge training display delivers an incomparably realistic experience. The sought-after training facility is so well respected that, with its previous components in place, the bridge simulator often operated from 7:00 a.m. to beyond 1:00 a.m., at least five days a week, for eight years. Not surprisingly, the bridge simulator was ready for a performance and modernization overhaul in 2012.

STAR Center relies on Digital Projection

"The upgrade was a resounding success," commented Brian Long. The existing projectors were replaced by nine of DPI's higher-resolution HIGHlite WUXGA 660 projectors with built-in advanced warp and blend capability, courtesy of their internal Fusion software. With the ability to run in both single and dual-lamp mode, the HIGHlite displays allow the STAR Center to accentuate extreme brightness or increased lamp efficiency based on the configuration.

Many thanks to STAR Center and Electric Picture for using DP's precision displays!

Tech Tip:
Fighting the Flat Panel Trend in Professional Applications

Strategies for Identifying Qualified Projection Prospects -- CLICK HERE to read the entire Tech Tip.

Over the past few years, flat panels have become increasingly big in screen size, while at the same time decreasing in price. Without a doubt, flat panels are creeping into smaller-screen projection applications, and taking market share. This has not impacted DP up to this point - given the high light output of DP's projection solutions, even our lowest cost projectors are typically employed as solutions for larger screen applications.

While it is reasonable to expect the flat panel size and cost trends will continue, we can take comfort in knowing that there are practical limits to how big flat panels can get and how low the price can become. Nonetheless, given the current threat to smaller screen projection applications, we thought it would be helpful to provide some brief suggestions to help our customers identify prospects with display applications where technical demands assure projection will remain king.

Larger Screens Over 90" Diagonal:
Certainly bigger panels are available, but the costs are still fairly high. In addition, larger panels are extremely heavy, and moving them into existing facilities and mounting them in those facilities is often not possible due to facility design. The majority of DP's projection solutions are 5000 lumens or much higher. Given the lumen power we offer in our product line, nearly all of the applications where DP projectors are employed are for screens that are much larger than 90" diagonal. Strategy: Customers with very small conference rooms are not your target. Seek customers with larger screen requirements and you will identify solid DP prospects. Key markets include higher education, fortune 5000, worship, public entertainment, staging, home cinema, and anyone with a venue of a scale that exceeds what a flat panel can reasonably achieve.
