Barco releases world's brightest QXGA projector for training and simulation industry

Barco, the independent world leader in visualization for the training and simulation market, announces the expansion of its projector portfolio with the SIM 7Q HB.
This new projector builds on the proven benefits of the SIM 7Q projectors, but delivers a brightness of 2,800 lumens. As such, the SIM 7Q HB is the world's brightest QXGA projector dedicated to the training and simulation industry, and a great solution for systems that need both high resolution (2048x1536) and high brightness. The innovative projector will debut at I/ITSEC, 28 November - 1 December 2011, in Orlando, Florida.

The SIM 7Q HB builds on the success of Barco's SIM 7 series, currently one of the most widely used projector ranges in the training and simulation industry. Over the past few years, these projectors have become key components in many professional simulation systems, including 360 domes, mini-domes, collimated displays, faceted displays, and custom solutions. The SIM 7Q HB was designed following customer requests for a simulation projector that adds high brightness to the SIM 7Q's high resolution, deep contrast and unique smear reduction, says Peter De Meerleer, Barco's Director Products and Solutions Management Simulation. The greater light output expands the applicability of this versatile projector range even further, making it ideal for environments where brightness is a critical issue.

High-bright system for eye-limiting resolution
The SIM 7Q HB uses Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) technology, which has a number of advantages for training and simulation systems. These include a stunning dynamic range of 6,000,000:1, a high pixel-fill factor and extremely small pixel density enabling systems to be created with eye-limiting resolution. Furthermore, the unique smear reduction option ensures that even fast-moving scenes remain sharp and free of ghosting. This makes the SIM 7Q HB the preferred projector for fast jet, nap-of-the-earth, and high-speed racing training systems. For even more flexibility, a special portrait mode model the SIM 7QP HB is available as well.

Designed for multi-channel systems
A number of innovative features that create a single seamless image using multiple projectors ensure that the SIM 7Q HB can be perfectly integrated into multi-channel systems. These features include: linked constant light output (CLO) and DynaColor to equalize brightness and color between channels, robust electronic edge blending to eliminate visible blend zones, and built-in warping technology to ensure a geometrically correct image on curved or spherical screens. With all of its innovative features and top-of-class specifications, the SIM 7Q HB creates the high-quality images needed for immersive simulation systems, even in environments with challenging light conditions.
