Part Number: 38-804756-XX

EDGE-BLENDING AND WARPING IMAGE PROCESSOR

The latest product in Christie's total simulation solutions, Imager enables you to electronically bend projected images onto cylindrical or spherical screen displays for perfectly uniform, seamless displays across any size screen and any shaped surface. The Imager complements Christie's costeffective, purpose-built simulation projectors for complete commercial off-the-shelf simulation projection.

Through a unique user interface, Imager allows you to edge-blend and adjust the geometric distortion and warping of an image. The Imager applies an advanced digital filter technique to eliminate aliasing effects that can be caused by mapping pixels to a new position. Where two images overlap, a blend region is defined where one projector fades out and another fades in. Using digital techniques, this blend region is almost imperceptible to the observer as the correct proportion from each projector is precisely calculated.

  • Enables projection on cylindrical or spherical curved screens with mapping, blending and shading
