Boeing Defence UK takes advanced approach with AvexiA

Christie advanced rearpro technology for visualisation and modelling
Posted 9/6/2013

Boeing Defence UKWhen Boeing Defence UK recently relocated its ‘Boeing Portal’ — a facility dedicated to analysis, modelling, simulation and experimentation — the mandate was to equip multiple laboratories, along with a main Presentation Room and Executive Conference Room with evolutionary state-of-the-art technology.

After moving a short distance across Hampshire to Fleet, the defence company turned to its UK Advisor, Graham Salvage of AvexiA, who has been delivering solutions for various Boeing facilities for the past five years. Responding to an intensive Statement of Requirement, which called for a giant rear projection glass screen display from Paradigm Audio Visual Ltd, Salvage specified a series of latest technology Christie® Matrix WUXGA projectors and Christie Entero RPMWU-LED01 WUXGA LED ultra-high resolution DLP® rear screen tiling projectors to bring the best out of the large display systems.

In order to maximise the impact, three of the Christie Matrix WU5 (1920 x 1200 native resolution) visualisation projectors have been specified, equipped with 1.16-1.49:1 zoom lenses; the result is an impressive edge blended image in a multi-frame Christie Spyder processing environment, with the projector beams folded via three mirror rigs from Paradigm Audio Visual Ltd onto the glass screen, which measures 7.4 metres x 1.85 metres.

Adjoining the Presentation Room is a similarly profiled Executive Conference Room where AvexiA has deployed three Christie Entero RPMWU-LED01 WUXGA engines – edge matched onto three 80” edge-butted dnp Cross Prism screens.
