Simulation Solutions

Christie simulation solutions – accurate, true-to-life integrated visual displays and projection systems.

Learning ‘on the job’ isn’t an option for pilots, air traffic controllers, naval captains, train engineers or construction equipment operators. Simulation gives the opportunity to repeatedly perform a task or rehearse a scenario that can’t safely, normally be performed in the real world. It may be cost-prohibitive or simply too dangerous to allow trainees to use the real equipment in the real world. Simulation allows trainees to make mistakes and learn from them in a safe environment.

Simulators use any combination of sound, sight, motion and smell to make the user feel that they're experiencing an actual situation. The simulators recreate "reality" accurately, so that trainees can learn the right way to do a task which can result in negative training.

Christie's simulation solutions

Diverse simulation applications offer a variety of issues and challenges and Christie® provides high-performance “real world” projectors and visual display solutions for training and simulation markets including:

Your partner in simulation

As your partner in simulation, our world-class, sales engineers, project managers, design and mechanical engineers and integration experts work together to deliver the most advanced, functional, and intuitive simulation display solutions. Factors such as eye-limiting resolution, geometry, image blending and warping, resolution, color and brightness uniformity, and latency are key criteria that must be addressed when designing simulation display solutions.

Whether you are an integrator looking for a visual display partner, or an end-user with a project that has demanding specifications, Christie delivers application-specific solutions. You can expect consistent, repeat performance without worry from your simulator, because Christie’s high product reliability ensures extensive, consistent use with minimal downtime.
