Concept metro train at sustainable cities exhibition utilises Calibre UK scalers from Paradigm AV

Adding to its realism, Paradigm AV integrated Calibre UK HQView320 image scalers with NEC PH1400U projectors.

Bradford, Yorkshire, UK, 6 January 2014 - Inspiring visitors wishing to personally experience and catch an insight into the future of metro style transportation and energy saving innovations, Calibre UK HQView320 scalers are used by display experts Paradigm AV in a projection solution integrated in the Siemens Inspiro concept metro train at the 'Going Underground: Our journey to the future' exhibition'.

Working for CBS Outdoor UK, Paradigm AV managed the full audiovisual installation, including the warping of images.

"A focus of the exhibition is to engage and inform audiences using technologies that help travellers find their waymore easily such as electronic ticketing developments, passenger information systems and station management solutions," explains Greg Jeffreys, Founder at Paradigm AV.

Inspiring city life

The full-size mock up of the Siemens Inspiro uses cross track projection to deliver moving video messages and advertisements that are digitally projected onto the wall opposite the station pedestrian platform.

Adding to its realism, Paradigm AV integrated Calibre UK HQView320 image scalers with NEC PH1400U projectors.

"We are using four-sided soft-edge blend, flexible geometry correction functions and full warp mapping of the HQView320s whichenable a projected image to be warped onto the Paradigm curved screen and frame," added Jeffreys.

Projection is also used to simulate a moving train from its interior by projecting digital images onto a curved surface outside of the train. For this, Paradigm AV specified two PanasonicPT-RZ470 projectors with standard lens and two Calibre HQView320's for warping of images.

Pauline Brooksbank, managing director at Calibre UK said: "Since we partnered with Paradigm AV to supply our products to market they have always impressed us with their interesting use of display technology in creating reliable audiovisual systems for visitor attractions and storytelling.

"The HQView320s are the perfect tool to perfectly align images onto unusual shapes and sizes. They are compatible with a variety of sources enabling the ticketing information and experience to wow audiences."

'Going Underground: Our journey to the future' exhibition is presented by Siemens alongside the London Transport Museum and CBS Outdoor UK. It is located at The Crystal in Royal Docks. The online guide can be found at which provides more information about the exhibits on display.
