Melbourne, FL (April 2013) Electric Picture Display Systems has been awarded a contract to provide a projection system upgrade to the Center for Marine Simulation, an industrial arm of the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University in Newfoundland, Canada.
The installation will utilize nine high-resolution projectors in a 360-degree array creating an image 20’ high by 210’ around. This Full Mission Bridge Simulator is one of only two in the world that uses a 6 degree-of-freedom motion platform.
Electric Picture, Melbourne-based visual systems designer/integrator, will provide high-resolution projection using camera-based blending/warping, fiber-optic signal transmission, and a unique optical masking system to eliminate overlapped projected light in night vision scenes. The entire simulator display will be operated and maintained via Electric Picture’s own touch panel control program.
“Electric Picture beat out much larger competitors to win this contract,” states RP Higgins, President and CEO of Electric Picture. “The fact that a world-class simulation facility all the way up in northern Canada would reach down to Melbourne, Florida, for expertise and services is testament to our reputation in our industry.”
