    One VERY exciting software program

    All,
    I posted this on the FDS forum today. I've become aware of some incredible software for warping and blending images to form beautiful wraparound visuals for flight simulation. The company is called ImmersaView at http://www.immersaview.com.

    Their product is called Sol7 and allows you to use a single computer and projector and project that image on any imaginable surface and correct the geometry so the image is not distorted in any way. It really shines, though, with multiple projectors, where not only is each image geometry-corrected, but also edge-blended, for seamless visuals of virtually any size or resolution.

    I'll be using it in two ways: 1) for a single projector on a curved, cylindrical screen for about 150˚ view, and 2) in conjunction with WideView, where each computer also runs Sol7 and each view is edge-blended and pre-warped, providing 150-180˚ total view, depending on how I set it up.

    This is not cheap software, but they are aware of the home market for simulators and are looking into solutions that might take advantage of the TripleHead2Go.

    Question

    Yeah, I think that's the "BIG" question

    This sounds fantastic for the low end projectors, which does not have these features attached. So the question IS, how much

    Also wondering if this is a software item or hardware item... anyone know?

    I wrote them and asked this question. Here is the response I got from Andy Boud.
    =====================================
    Hi Andy,

    Thanks for getting back to me with your info.

    Currently our main customer base is the high-end simulation world,
    generally defense based. Hence, pricing for the Sol7 for them is very
    cost effective when compared to other hardware alternatives. However, we
    also acknowledge that 4k is a high price for non-commercial users.

    If you can let me know your intended set-up (i.e. the number of
    projectors, display set-up, software application and any pics etc.) then
    we will discuss you enquiry internally to see if we can possibly bend
    the general rules. In certain cases we have previously provided price
    breaks if users are prepared to become beta testers, especially in the
    non-commercial world.

    Regards

    Andy
