Now available, "the world's most amazing golf simulator" from High Definition Golf (HDG™) is now available in 16:9 aspect ratio and 1920 x 1200 pixel screen resolution.
"Once again, High Definition Golf sets a new standard in accuracy and realism for indoor golf," said Todd Richardson, President and CEO of Interactive Sports Technologies. "To continue offering the most advanced golf simulators on the market, we work hard to stay on top of emerging technologies. Combining these curved screens with our photo-realistic imagery offers unparalleled realism. You may forget you are playing indoors."
The new widescreen simulators create a totally immersive playing environment. Featuring a larger curved screen, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and a 1920 x 1200 pixel screen resolution, these exciting new additions to the High Definition Golf line-up include all the cutting edge technology that has made HDG the leader in the golf simulator industry. These include highly accurate ball and club tracking and measurement systems, realistic golf courses that look and play like the real thing, and intuitive easy-to-use touchscreen interfaces.
New 16:9 widescreen models include
• Executive CS (H 9ft x W 14.5ft x L 21ft)
• Standard CS (H 10ft x W 16ft x L 23ft)
• Championship CS (H 11ft x W 17.5ft x L 25ft)
Designed and manufactured by Interactive Sports Technologies Inc., the systems utilize advanced stereoscopic computer vision technology that provides the industry's most comprehensive and precise shot analysis. HDG has the unique capability to measure all critical ball and club parameters, including ball speed, club speed, launch angle, club face angle, ball spin, and spin axis at high accuracy. As a result, the system is used by tour professionals such as Stephen Ames and Jerry Kelly as well as top golf instructors such as Jim McLean.
High Definition Golf is the only golf simulator that looks and plays like the real thing. Spectacular photo-realistic capabilities capture the true beauty of some of the world's most renowned golf courses, including Pebble Beach Golf Links, Pinehurst, Kiawah Island, Spyglass Hill, Doral, Harbour Town, Troon North, Bethpage, Banff Springs, and many others. Revolutionary image processing software combines high resolution digital imagery and satellite data into 3D models of golf courses that not only look real, they are completely accurate everywhere on the course. Every tree, bunker, and hazard is faithfully reproduced exactly as you would see it playing the actual course. This has made HDG a favorite in luxury homes, indoor golf centers, golf course clubhouses, recreation centers, luxury hotels, and resorts.
"High Definition Golf provides a turnkey solution for those looking to invest in a golf simulator," added Richardson. "We will work with architects, builders, and designers every step of the way. We provide design, consulting and installation services, floor plans and CAD drawings, as well as superior service and post installation aftercare. Whether it's for the home, golf instruction, clubfitting or golf retail, High Definition Golf simulators can be configured to meet your specific needs."
Installation is significantly easier than most other simulators as HD Golf simulators do not require the installation of sensors into the floors or walls or the construction of a sub-floor. HD Golf simulators can be installed in either "soft-wall" or "hard-wall" configurations. In "soft-wall" applications, extendable curtains can be pulled back allowing the room to be used for other purposes. A portable/temporary install model with framed enclosure and awning is also available.
High Definition Golf simulators are sold and installed as a complete system package. The package includes the latest desktop workstation, HDTV compatible high brightness projector, 19-inch touch-screen console, HD Golf™ precision ball tracking system, golf frame (including high brilliance screen with "quiet" technology), pro-grade nylon golf turf and tee mats, and a 250W stereo sound system. Simulator software includes a selection of world famous championship golf courses, chipping and putting greens, games and competitive events (including "long drive" and "closest-to-pin"), trajectory analysis, club-fitting, clubface and swing-path analysis tools. In addition, there are a variety of accessories and golf simulator options available, including video swing analysis, club fitting, tournament and Internet play with audio and video.
The scientists, engineers, and software developers at High Definition Golf continue to innovate, refine, and enhance its industry-leading technology ensuring that HD Golf's customers will continue to enjoy an unparalleled indoor golf experience. The goal is to not only give golfers a simulator that looks and plays like the real thing, but to continue to expand the range of technologies used to further enhance the indoor golf experience. HD Golf wants the golf played indoors to be as real as the golf played outdoors. That's why HD Golf is the only golf simulator company that designs and manufactures the entire system…including all software and the ball tracking system, and is why HD Golf designs its own high-speed programmable cameras, and is why all of its modules work together seamlessly. This commitment and capability are the reasons why HD Golf is the leader in golf simulation today.
In addition to being the finest indoor golf simulator available, HDG can also be used as the ultimate home theater. It brings movies and sporting events to life on the large high brightness/contrast screen by connecting satellite or cable service, or by using the built-in DVD player. A game console can even be connected for the ultimate video gaming experience.
