Marshalltown, IA: Mechdyne announced today that it is now offering projection-based 8K resolution systems for both 2D audiovisual (AV) and 3D Virtual Reality (VR) applications. For large-scale and room-sized displays, 8K resolution, which is four times higher than today’s ultra-high definition (UHD) 4K, brings detailed visualizations and complex computer-generated graphics to life. With 23 years of experience in providing customized display solutions that include complex image generation, Mechdyne has the depth of understanding to help organizations benefit from this next level of display technology.
8K display offers 7680 X 4320 pixel of resolution, four times the total of current 4K UHD displays at 3840 x 2160. This new level of fidelity brings value to video production and editing applications, live productions, and medical and scientific research, where increased detail can lead to new insights. It serves any presentation environment where exceptional image quality can facilitate decision making and it is effective for windowing technology that enables multiple sources to be displayed dynamically at one time with excellent detail in each image. Stereoscopic 3D applications for 8K are focused primarily on virtual reality use cases where spectacular immersive visualizations can promote discoveries in research, product design (eg. automotive), simulation, and highly realistic interactive experiences.
Mechdyne has delivered turn-key integrated systems at resolutions up to 200 million pixels (creating a 100 million pixel 3D immersive space). The Mechdyne CAVE is a standardized 72 million pixel hybrid 2D/3D capable collaborative working environment. Mechdyne designers and technicians have experience with the specification, configuration, and synchronization of the complex computing systems required for this new level of visual acuity, especially when enabled for 3D virtual reality.
One projector that is 8K-ready for AV and VR is the new Digital Projection Insight Laser 8K projector. This incredible new DLP projector is designed for demanding medical, research, simulation, and entertainment applications, offering vibrant colors and high levels of contrast. The 25,000 lumens brightness makes this projector applicable to just about any environment. Designed for 20,000 hours of operation, the laser light source ensures long term high stability.
The Insight 8K is also capable of projecting images in active stereoscopic 3D format. This means 8K images of left and right eye perspectives are presented alternately at high speed and synchronized with electronic shutter glasses worn by viewers. With double the computing requirement, the experts at Mechdyne are adept at addressing the increased challenge of perfect synchronization.
Mechdyne also provides fully integrated systems with 8K resolution flat-panel technology or seamless 8K resolution LED walls, as well as 8K-configured computing and control systems. Mechdyne solution consultants work closely with organizations to fully understand the end-use application and goals before recommending specific technologies. They design and recommend systems that meet return on investment objectives and minimize long term cost of ownership.
