Multi Image Processing System™
The projectiondesign Multi Image Processor system components provide state-of-the art image blending and geometry correction for advanced solutions in scientific visualisation, training and simulation, or media and entertainment applications. High end hardware processing provide correction on a per-pixel basis, for absolutely perfect image performance. Its infinite scalability, and total IG transparency secures a future proof investment.
Fully WQXGA (2560×1600) compatible
The Multi Image Processor WB2560 features 6.25 Mps image processing for full 2560×1600 image processing without any limitations. Featuring Dual Link DVI in/out, it easily blends, geometry corrects, and colour manages any resolution up to WQXGA, making it forward compatible with next generation displays. The WB1920 shares all the same features, but with a lower 1920×1200 maximum image resolution. The high bandwidth enables high frame rates for reduced smear and image artefacts.
Black Level Matching – BLM
For truly seamless blending and matching between multiple displays, the Multi Image Processor processing system features patented (US Pat No. 6,760,075 B2) Black Level Matching functionality. Black level of individual displays can be adjusted on pixel level, so that the result is a completely uniform display at all levels.
Pixel Level Matching™ – 3-channel-pixel level gain and lift correction
Additional to BLM, the Multi Image Processor features individual RGB gain and lift per pixel; Pixel Level Matching™ – PLM™. This ensures completely uniform images in both colour and brightness levels. A challenge in displays and ordinary processing systems, the PLM functionality integrates seamlessly with the display, and can be monitored and corrected directly from the ProNet™ control and setup application.
4×4 Lanczos or bicubic interpolation adaptive filtering
The high speed dual-core processor in the Multi Image Processor enables very sophisticated filtering and scaling filters. Several types of filtering can be selected and applied, Applying the acclaimed 4×4 Lanczos filtering method in a random pattern to blend and correction zones retains a very high degree of detail and sharpness also when the image is electronically corrected.
There are no scalability limitations when using the Multi Image Processor system. Any number of channels can be combined to a single image, without constraints.
Blending several Image Generators and projectors together for a single, multiple channel image is done with absolute zero latency. Applications that require geometry correction feature the least possible latency, typically less than one frame, even in the worst case installations. Latency is dependent only on rotation correction.
3D stereographic displays
The WB2560 supports up to 1920×1200 at a full 120Hz refresh rate active 3D stereo, with full geometry correction and blend capabilities. This makes it easy to assemble a fully immersive system of corrected 3D displays.
Rack mount hardware
Each Multi Image Processor is half-width, 1U standard size, so two channels can be combined in a single standard 19” 1RU rack mounting plate. Each Multi Image Processor also features its own internal power supply, so power management is easy, as there is no wall-wart or external power supply module. The double processing 1RU unit easily creates a simple two-channel blend, or single image 3D stereoscopic geometry corrected setup for use on any surface.
