When done well, a single display using multiple projectors produces large, bright, high-resolution images. Done poorly, the display from multiple projectors will show a visible band where the projected images overlap.
Edge-blending technology solves that problem. The video signal from one projector is gradually faded out through the banded zone, while the adjacent projection or channel is faded up. The appearance of banding is eliminated and a single image is created across the screen.
What can blending and warping solutions offer?
- Harness the power of multiple projectors – blending technologies make it fast and easy to get perfectly-blended displays.
- Seamless, edge-blended displays – blend the edges of multiple curved images with repeated accuracy and speed.
