Samsung recognizes Electric Picture in helping to bring tugboat simulator to life.

The State University of New York (SUNY) Maritime College wanted to build the only ship simulation center in the United States that would recreate the experience of working on a tugboat and barge. Other simulation centers provided general training to navigate ships, but they lacked the unique settings of a tugboat and barge bridge. SUNY Maritime needed a display solution that would create a lifelike 360-degree view from a tugboat bridge that could simulate weather and sea conditions at some of the country’s busiest ports.

Electric Picture Unveils ORION VideoWall Stands

Electric Picture Unveils ORION VideoWall Monitor Stands. A 2×12 curved monitor display was engineered and built by Electric Picture for an Orlando-based customer. The request was for a 5° angle between 55″ tiny bezel monitors. Electric Picture customized the stand bases to conform to the requested curvature of the image. Adjustments can be made to ensure ease of installation given inconsistencies of flooring or angle of separation between monitors. The ORION VideoWall stand is designed, engineered, and built in Melbourne, FL, and can be configured for any LED display.

 

Kongsberg Maritime Simulation Awards Key Contract to Electric Picture

Digital Upgrade Completed for Canadian Naval Officer Training Center

Esquimalt, BC Canada.  Kongsberg Maritime contracted Electric Picture to perform a complete overhaul of the switching, video and audio signal transmission, and control of six ships bridge simulators with binocular channels and eight RADAR displays now have complete digital signals transmitted through a new 36 channel switcher.  All analog RGBHV cabling was replaced with 2LC Fiber Optic throughout the building.

A display upgrade was done to the small auditorium where five 47” Sharp Professional grade monitors were mounted from the ceiling emulating the forward 5 channels of each simulator for After Action Review.

Three Extron Touchlink 10” touchpanel controls were installed to easily select which simulator and radar would be displayed for the instructors.  Electric Picture completed this project, including Site Acceptance, on time.  All was well received by staff at NOTC-Esquimalt.
