Product and Services
Northstar™ is 3D perception’s turn-key simulation display solution, and is the fusion of the following major components, which are further described in later proposal sections:
nBox™ - multichannel image processor and display manager. nBox is the heart of the Northstar display eco-system. nBox is a rack-mountable next-generation, zero frame latency, multi-projector display processor for seamlessly blending multiple projectors onto immersive screens. nBox warps, blends and color corrects content, and displays imagery on any screen shape.
Aurora™ - instrumented smart screen for automatic image alignment. Aurora screens are key to Northstar’s automatic geometry correction, edge blending, and color alignment. Embedded sensor-at-the-surface technology analyzes projected images and communicates with nBox for precision adjustment for warp, blend, color, and intensity calibration.
StarScan™ - 3D automatic image alignment scanner. StarScan provides detailed measurement and alignment of display system geometry using high precision gimbal pointing, and laser rangefinding.
Northstar Certified Projectors™ - professional simulation-grade projectors. Specific projectors that pass 3DP’s qualification of fit for use in professional simulation environments when combined with other Northstar technologies.
Dynamic Optical Blenders™ - precision edge blending for any time of day. Dynamic Optical Blenders optimize image quality and provide precision edge blending for day through night and night vision goggle (NVG) training.
