Atlanta, GA - December 18th, 2018 – Digital Projection has once again pushed the boundaries of display technology with the INSIGHT 4K HFR 360 Multi-View 3D projector – a powerful solution for creating truly immersive, collaborative, and interactive 3D experiences. Prior to the launch of this new model, 3D technology suffered from a significant immersive limitation: each user was viewing the exact same image, regardless of where they were physically positioned with respect to that image.
With Multi-View 3D projection, a single projector with ultra-fast frame rates can accommodate several viewers, each of which being individually tracked and having a view of the image that remains appropriate to their changing position. This allows the users to see and interact with each other in a truly shared, collaborative manner.
Previously, the ultra-fast frame rates required for a multi-viewer 3D system have meant sacrificing resolution - and therefore image fidelity. Unwilling to accept such a compromise, Digital Projection designed the INSIGHT 4K HFR 360 to offer both native 4K and high frame rate.
While 120 frames per second is enough for single user 3D, the INSIGHT 4K HFR 360 delivers an unrivaled 360 frames per second at native 4K resolution, enabling content creators to serve three independent, high-resolution 3D views with just one projector. Furthermore, the addition of a second projector to the system increases the unique user 3D views to six.
This technology provides endless possibilities for a wide variety of applications. Visualization solutions, industrial design and visitor attractions are a natural fit. Users can create virtual rides in theme parks or immersive exhibits in museums such as a virtual tour of an ancient building or a lifelike experience with precious artifacts. Thanks to a personalized, pin-sharp view for each user, every viewer can follow the explanations of a tour guide from their own unique perspective. Every detail is displayed for each user from the correct point of view.
To ensure that the projector can be integrated into installations with ease, the INSIGHT 4K HFR 360 has been designed to work with industry standard synchronization signals for 3D active shutter glasses. Digital Projection’s collaboration with a specialist manufacturer has led to active 3D glasses that can switch between the black and transmissive states in around 200µs - three times faster than other commercially available 3D glasses.
To enable users to view images from their correct perspective, each viewer must be tracked to 6 Degrees of Freedom [6DOF]. Digital Projection has worked with leaders in head tracking technology to achieve this requirement. In every way, Digital Projection is providing a precise, powerful and truly collaborative multi-view solution.
