Barco showcases simulation and training innovations delivering high-fidelity, immersive projection at I/ITSEC

barco1-0314Sacramento, Calif. USA – 24 November 2015 – Barco, a global leader in visualization technology, is continuing to forge a path toward the ultimate immersive simulation experience with its industry-leading projection for advanced training applications. Visitors can see the latest solutions in action at I/ITSEC, the world’s largest modeling, simulation, and training conference, to be held November 30-December 4 in Orlando, Florida.

Simulators used for military training save countless lives and millions of dollars and, with recent advances in technologies that increase power and reduce size, they are becoming more popular than ever. Barco has a long history in building solutions for simulated environments in military defense, product development and educational programs.

“Our simulation projectors offer the highest level of realism, which is critical to shifting more live action military training to the safer and more cost-effective simulator platform,” comments Dave Fluegeman, Vice President Simulation at Barco. “We are continuing to invest in technologies that heighten the sensory dimension of training applications to achieve a more lifelike experience.”

Razor-sharp images with 120Hz high frame rates
The single-chip F50 projector offers a powerful combination of price and performance packaged in a low-maintenance design. Developed specifically for simulation and training, the F50 features native WQXGA (4.1 MP) resolution, creating smooth, smear-free images at 120Hz for critical, fast moving training applications.

World’s brightest, high-resolution LED projector with NVG stimulation
FS35 IR series projectors offer unprecedented day, night and IR stimulated simulation featuring Smear Reduction Processing (SRP™) displaying flicker-free, fast moving content. Zero-100% adjustable visible RGB dimming properties makes it ideal for transitioning between day, dusk and night-time training.
