Sony strengthens push into visualization and simulation market
Orlando, FL December 1, 2014 — Scalable Display Technologies, a leading provider of display calibration software for military simulation display systems, VDC Display Systems, a Video Display Corporation company and a leading provider of simulation displays and Sony Electronics, manufacturer of the compact form factor VPL-GT100 4K projector, today announced their collaboration at the I/ITSEC trade show. VDCDS will use Scalable Display Managerâ„¢ software for automatic warp and blend with two blended Sony's VPL-GTZ1 4K laser ultra short throw projectors producing a full 8K x2K targeted at the simulation and Command and Control markets.
Scalable Display, VDCDS and Sony have partnered in the simulation market for many years and now Sony is continuing to expand its presence in this market. Scalable's camera-based calibration software, Scalable Display Manager, is ideally suited for warping and blending multiple 4K projectors for the highest quality imagery available.
â€œOur partnership with Scalable and Sony in the military simulation market dates back to 2009 on the original MSAT and SAVT programs.â€ said Marcial Vidal, President of VDCDS. â€œWe have enjoyed early success with the GT100 and will expand our rugged motion ready product line with the addition of Sony's new GTZ1 laser projector. The quality of imagery is unsurpassed in my opinion.â€
â€œVDCDS has integrated Sony 4K projectors and Scalable software together on several military programs in the past few years. We are particularly excited to be working with the new small form-factor Sony 4K projectors,â€ said Andrew Jamison, CEO of Scalable Display Technologies â€œThe small GT-100 4K projector is well suited for the simulation market. We are pleased with the positive market traction we have achieved with the combination of GT-100 and Scalable Display Manager so far.â€
â€œOur systems integration partner VDCDS has long paired Sony 4K projectors with Scalable software to meet the stringent demands of the simulation market, â€ said Mark Bonifacio, Director, Visual Presentation Solutions, Sony Electronics. â€œWe are pleased to now further strengthen our relationship with Scalable and VDCDS in the simulation market.
