    Sol7 (ImmersaView) Commitment to supporting this community

    Thanks everyone so far for all the comments and interest in Sol7. This forum has had some great responses which I hope has generated some good news for all!

    Today we've had a number of internal discussions which I thought would be valuable to share with everyone before any 'official' announcement. Our aim here is to try and ensure we meet expectations before settling on a official position.

    We're potentially opening up a Pandora's box by listing our thoughts, but we have tried to strike a balance between all factors!

    Our current thoughts are ....
    - provide a home-sim (non-commercial) version of Sol7
    - add support for TH2Go and horizontal span mode
    - software would be licensed on a per PC model, so a number of projectors can be run from one PC.
    - pricing would be in the region of 350-400 USD per PC with one full year of email support as well as immediate access to all minor and major upgrades
    - optional upgrades and support beyond the first year at $50 per annum to stay up to date with current versions

    I look forward to hearing responses and please feel free to respond via email if preferred. I hope this shows our commitment to supporting this community and aiding with visual set-ups with the use of Sol7.

    Wow. At that level of pricing I might even consider using this for my new sim!
    Now I just need to find projectors in a reasonable price range.

    Andy,
    this is great news for the community! I feel glad to have brought Sol7 to the attention of the home flight simulation community as well as bringing the opportunity in the home sim market to the attention of Immersaview.

    I hope with the new features, new pricing and new market, everyone will benefit! This is truly one of the advantages of being part of a community.

    Steve

    Andy- thank you for working with and for the community- it is my sincere hope that you benefit greatly from this, as there has always been a need to address this and it appears that now a solution is finally at hand, and for a very reasonable cost.

    Thanks again

    to sum it up...

    So, to sum it all up,

    I think that we have determined that this is our solution to:

    *Use curved screens to project our external views onto without the inherited issues of warping and side-speed issues.

    *Future Tripple Head 2 Go integration

    *There is a software solution to forego the TH2G

    Please feel free to add on to this, or to make a summary, if you guys care to.
