Christie Continues To Lead The Way In Visual Display System Education For Simulation

Christie will host the fourth SIM University training forum May 7-8 at the University of Central Florida

Christie®, a leader in simulation projection display solutions, today announced that it is hosting the fourth SIM University training forum, a free educational event taking place May 7-8 dedicated to the world of visual display requirements for the simulation industry at the Institute for Simulation and Training at the University of Central Florida.

Zoran Veselic, vice president of Christie's Visual Environments, commented: "The capabilities and requirements of visual displays in the simulation industry are not only complex, but continuously advancing. Bringing together experts and participants in this field by way of an educational forum enables personnel such as visual, systems or design engineers and program managers to gain a more in-depth understanding of system parameters and metrics, for instance, and be better equipped to specify technology that will successfully meet system requirements. The event also expands our own knowledge of industry needs and priorities so that we can adapt and create new solutions for our customers."

Based on participants' feedback and positive responses, Christie will introduce a new format, which extends the event to one-and-a-half days. The first part is a half day that is dedicated to understanding the basics of display technology and is designed for those with entry-level experience in visual display systems for simulation or those interested in a refresher on display technology. Day two is focused on intermediate and advanced subject matter content or for anyone who attends the half-day session the day prior.

Joining Christie's engineers and technical staff in presenting at SIM University are other leading organizations in the field of visual technology displays for simulation including Flight Safety International, a world-leading aviation training company, RealTime Immersive, Inc. a simulation and serious games studio established to support CryENGINE® licensees in the serious game and simulation market space and Thinklogical LLC, a global manufacturer of secure fiber optic video and KVM routing and extension systems.

Whether participants are visual, systems, or product design engineers, program managers or technical specialists in the simulation industry, they will benefit from this one or two-day session that includes technical presentations designed to increase one's knowledge of various visual display requirements: color and latency, warping, night vision goggle stimulation principles and practices, and collimation, field of view and viewing volume in simulators, to name a few.

Specialists in simulation and training interested in learning more or signing up for the next SIM University can email the SIM University team.
