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)
  • Warp/blend appliances
  • Projectors with on-board warp & blend functionality
  • Nvidia Quadro 5000s located in separate PCs

Features

Automates the warp/blend set-up and maintenance process
Simple User Interface

including help menus, tips and user preference settings

“One-touch” re-calibration
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

Dynamic Eyepoint

This feature is used in conjunction with a head tracking device

Benefits

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.
