Scalable Display Manager
Scalable Display Manager (SDM) software, with EasyBlend™ technology, is our software platform most often used in more complex environments such as military simulation or high end professional AV applications where video is played across multiple PCs.
Scalable Display Manager is used where the "Scalable Mesh Files" need to be distributed to multiple locations such as:
Image Generators (IGs)
Projectors with on-board warp & blend functionality
Nvidia Quadro 5000s located in separate PCs
Automates the warp/blend set-up and maintenance process
Simple User Interface
including help menus, tips and user preference settings
SDK to “Scalable Enabled” applications
Our OpenGL and DirectX SDKs provide a well documented method to bring applications into the multi-megapixel market.
Patented camera based solution
Supports a wide range of screen geometries
Flat, cylinder, dome sections and capped domes
Unlimited number of projectors and cameras
There is no theoretical limit to the number of cameras that can be used.
“Lightweight” Display Client is ideal for use on diskless IGs
The Our Display Client is designed for many of our mil sim customers who are now using diskless IGs. The client is available for Windows and Linux OS.
Pan-tilt head for DSLR camera for use on open domes
The flexibility to select a convenient camera placement has proven to be very valuable to clients
Support for both orthographic and perspective mesh types
Playback solutions and IGs vary in their use of orthographic vs. perspective meshes thus we support both
Automatic generation of frustum information
This rather benign feature is actually very important to those individuals who deal with view frusta
This feature is used in conjunction with a head tracking device
Faster set-up and re-calibration
Reducing labor costs is a significant driver for our customers
Lower training requirement and reduced maintenance cost
Once installed, Scalable's products offer the simplicity of "one-button re-calibration. Moreover, the software is intuitive and well documented such that the learning curve is very quick
Precise pixel alignment for consistent “mesh uniformity” and blending
Our camera based calibration process along with the EasyBlend algorithms yield "military grade precision" of our mesh. We meet or exceed all military acceptance tests
Flexibility to place cameras as required to see screen
We have found that our flexibility of camera placement is a great convenience to customers.
