Xenia, Ohio, USA 14 May 2013 Visualization pioneer Barco is pleased to announce the opening of its new demonstration and training center in Xenia, Ohio, United States, which will showcase real world visual display systems and products tailored to meet the needs and requirements of training and simulation markets. A wide variety of solutions will be on display for Barco integrator partners and endusers, which will also be used to train customers in these stateofart multiprojector display systems. Located just minutes away from WrightPatterson Air Force Base in Dayton, the new Center of Excellence demo center will feature numerous industryleading technologies such as LCoS and DLP imaging, as well as LED and lampbased illumination, which form the foundation of Barcos highfidelity simulation projectors, visual display systems, and proprietary software solutions. The new Center will be inaugurated on May 1516, 2013 at an exclusive grand opening event with more than 100 major customers endusers, integrator partners, and resellers and members of the press in attendance. The event will also provide an opportunity for Barco and projectiondesign of Norway, which Barco recently acquired, to demonstrate how they have joined forces to create the most comprehensive portfolio of visual display systems and projectors available today to meet the stringent demands of the training and simulation community. In dome view The Xenia facility will include two dome projection systems capable of immersing trainees in a wide variety of simulated environments. Addressing the simulation and training markets increasing requirements for realism in fastjet applications, BarcosRP360 immersive domewill showcase a combination of six BarcoSIM 10and sixSIM 7LCoS projectors. Each projector produces images at 10 megapixels (QUADHD) and QXGA resolution respectively. Image Generators will be provided by Aechelon Technology Inc. showing OutofTheWindow (OTW) fastjet content. The system aims to highlight eyelimiting resolution and highcontrast imaging. A second dome will use six projectiondesign F35 WQXGA projectors with images warped, blended and mapped using Scalable Display Technologies calibration software and integrated with Vital X image generators from Flight Safety International. This Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) dome is used to provide Terminal Attack Control (TAC), fire support coordination training, and joint Close Air Support (CAS) training and mission rehearsal capability. In night vision Night vision operations are increasingly important to customers who demand flexible systems to support a broad range of training objectives. At the heart of Barcos dedicated Night Vision Goggle (NVG) demonstration is the worlds highest resolution 4.1 megapixel FS35 IR ReaLED projector that will utilize the image generators from Meta VR. CrossCockpit Collimated Display Barcos latest collimated (parallel viewing) solutions fulfills the increasingly stringent requirements for realism in widebody applications, with a solution offering the closest experience to true, crosscockpit flying thanks to the widest, unobstructed viewing angle. Barco will demonstrate itsCD2260, a 220degree by 60degree collimated dome showcasing five Sim7 LCoS projectors. Image Generators will be provided by Aechelon Technology Inc. showing OutofTheWindow (OTW) content. In addition, the facility will also have an upgraded conference room, reception area and separate rooms in which individual projectors can be viewed. The demonstration and training center here in Xenia reflects Barcos commitment to our end users and integrator partners to provide the very best visual display systems and products, and make them accessible for evaluation, training, and development whenever needed, comments Mark Saturno, Vice President of Worldwide Sales for Barcos Training and Simulation Division. Having a standing center like this will allow our customers to see our solutions in action and expedite continued development of our offerings. Dave Scott, Senior VP and General Manager of Barcos Defense, Aerospace and Training Division added that Barco has been supporting our defense customers worldwide for the past two decades, and nothing is more important in that endeavor than insuring our servicemen and women have the very best devices on which to train. Barcos display systems and projectors are at the heart of thousands of simulators around the world, and we look forw
