    surround view experiences

    Man, thatīs crazy! I got my 3 Mitsubishi projectors today, and I am simply stunned! Although I have not constructed the curved screen yet, just put the whitebords in front of my pit and the projectors on the glareshield not aligned at all and using one forward window zoomed back to .3, I am overwhelmed with the result. You become really really immersed into the scenery, WOW!
    Pics show KLAS scenery. I also made a short flight in sunrise from LOWI to LIPZ (=Venice). Just marvellous. I can only recommend these projectors to any cockpitbuilder. Will report the progress of the setup of my visuals.

    Re: surround view experiences

    Is this me or are the pictures rather small, compared to what we usually see on the forum?

    Re: surround view experiences

    Sorry for the tiny pictures, they were originally linked to another picture server, but are not anymore, for reasons I donīt know. I tried to upload the pictures to Mycockpit, but it wonīt work. Maybe Matt can help on this.

    Thanks
    Chris

    Re: surround view experiences

    I have a question,
    In my sim room, i have enough room for 3 projectors to be 13ft from their respective screens. What is the advantage for going short throw vs standard throw? Besides space, is there a quality difference? Its allot cheaper to get standard projectors that why i ask, plus i have the space.
