GLASGOW SCHOOL OF SIMULATION & VISUALISATION
Reported by AV Magazine:
Guided by the expertise of Antycip, the Glasgow School of Art’s need for a high brightness, 4K resolution, 3D stereoscopic projection solution was met by Digital Projection’s INSIGHT Laser 4K.
SimVis operates across research such as cutting-edge medical and heritage visualisation, commercial projects and academic research. Though each area is self-funding, large amounts of the commercial and medical research seeps into the academic arm so students are continually exposed to a broad range of projects from virtual reality computer games to heritage visualisation.
John Mould, commercial development manager for Antycip describes the criteria upon which the projection solution was based, “SimVis wanted a projector that provided higher brightness than the existing solution in place, native 4K resolution with 120hz active stereo output capability.”
The size of the projector was important so projectors requiring active heat extraction measures were ruled out.
“Finally, we were looking for a projector that could also address optical requirements for the throw distance and image width for the SimVis’ 11.4 x 6.4 metre projection wall.”
