Digital Projection Laser Used for Simulation

Glasgow School of Art’s School of Simulation and Visualisation (SimVis) – formerly The Digital Design Studio – is an immersive visualisation centre for commercial and postgraduate research and has bought Digital Projection’s Insight Laser 4K, supplied by Antycip Simulation for 4K resolution with stereo 3D.

John Mould, commercial development manager for Antycip Simulation described 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.” The 20,000 hour life of the projector was also an attraction.
