Some years ago, Transas Marine International in Gothenburg installed a ships bridge simulator for their customer Sjöfartsverket (Swedish Maritime Administration) in Gothenburg. It is based on a 7 channel projection system covering 220 degrees field of view horizontally.
To comply with certifications the end user needed to upgrade to a 240 degree projection. Our customer Transas approached us once again to propose a new design and to deliver the projection system.
The new solution is based on 7 projectiondesign F22 projectors and equipped with a domeprojection.com multi camera auto-calibration solution, fully integrated with Transas’ internal warp and blend. Not only is the projection now covering 240 degrees HFOV but additional pixels were also added to fill the available screen from floor to ceiling.
