Christie Launches AccuFrame Pro at I/ITSEC 2015

Software works at the pixel level to reduce smear and improve perceived dynamic resolution in simulator visual systems

Christie, a leader in creating and sharing the world's best visual and audio experiences, is launching AccuFrame Pro at I/ITSEC 2015. AccuFrame Pro software reduces visual artifacts, like smear, that contribute to "negative training" - a simulated environment that gives false visual and motion cues - by targeting low-to-mid intensity content at the pixel level, without reducing brightness caused by shortening the time each frame is displayed in a simulator.


"By reducing smear at the pixel level, images appear sharper and moving images look more realistic," says Curtis Lingard, product manager, Christie. "AccuFrame Pro eliminates the need for additional projectors to compensate for the loss of brightness by targeting low-to-mid intensity content, where most simulated content falls."

AccuFrame Pro is activated via a licensing process for any Matrix StIM WQ, Matrix SIM WQ and Mirage WQ-L projector in the field, thereby improving existing installations without the need to purchase higher resolution projectors. Accuframe Pro enhances dynamic image quality at both 60Hz and 120Hz.

Booth visitors will experience the powerful impact of AccuFrame Pro in action in Christie's three-channel front projected display showing an air model simulation at 120Hz using the Christie Matrix StIM WQ system.

AccuFrame Pro used by ASI for T-45C Operational Flight Trainer Refresh Program

Aero Simulation Inc., (ASI) awarded Christie a contract for the display system refresh of T-45C Operational Flight Trainers, at the Naval Air Station in Meridian, Mississippi. The trainer upgrades, based upon Christie Matrix StIM-WQ projectors with Accuframe Pro, will provide the full range of out-the-window visual images required for pilot training. ASI is Christie's "launch customer" for AccuFrame Pro.

Vlad Argintaru, ASI's Senior Visual Systems Engineer stated, "AccuFrame Pro presents a significant improvement over traditional smear reduction methods, resulting in increased dynamic resolution in Christie simulation projectors. While most current methods typically impose a significant reduction in image brightness, AccuFrame Pro effectively controls image smear, while minimizing brightness loss. These features are of particular benefit to a simulation program for an aircraft such as the T-45C, which as a fast jet requires maximum image smear reduction, as well as high brightness to support training objectives for nighttime landings on aircraft carriers using landing aid systems."

Introducing the revolutionary Comelit Visto Smart Doorbell

Introducing the revolutionary Comelit Visto Smart Doorbell

The Visto Doorbell is a new Smart Doorbell from Comelit which combines a modern Italian design with all of the basic features you are looking for in a smart video doorbell. In fact, it is so smart that it can use the 2 wires from your existing doorbell and pass both the power and the data signals. This solves the common problem of having poor wifi coverage all the way at your front door. The Visto also has built in night vision, video recording on a SD card and in the cloud, motion detection, and multiple mounting options including an angle mount. The second thing we are introducing is the Visto Dealer referral program. Because we only sell through the Professional Distribution channel, we want to give our dealers who buy in that channel extra incentives to sell our product. For any security dealers or installers who go on our website www.vistodoorbell.com, and sign up for our program, we will offer the following: - Free referrals to customers in your area - Cashback program - 10% discount during the 1st month of the launch - Free Visto t-shirts and gear - A chance to win a trip for 2 to Venice, Italy Its that easy. Let us refer customer to you and get paid in the process. All while selling a wonderful Italian designed smart doorbell which is innovative and easy to install. So all dealers should protect the pro-channel and install products like the Visto which are made and sold only at your friendly local security and low voltage distributors.
