LUNA Warpbox – Warping with Precision

The Warpbox LUNA 4C is a new low latency warp and image correction processor for 2d media and 3d simulation purposes. It can process complex and non-linear warp configurations and provides rotation up to +/-180° as well as upscaling and downscaling. The warpbox can be equipped with up to 4 DisplayPort 1.4 video channel cards.

LUNA 4C Warpbox is the perfect choice for multi projector systems displaying high level simulations and other interactive content. It is integrated into domeprojection.com® ProjectionTools, and therefore providing ideal multi-channel projection support.

LUNA 4C Warpbox will be available in autumn 2021.

Warping, Blending and Color Handling with high resolution

In contrast to other warp processors our video pipeline works entirely in linear color space using a resolution of 24 bits per color. This includes warping, interpolation, color correction, and blend and black level correction.

The system is interpolating while warping, with bilinear and bicubic subpixel interpolation on the input video stream in order to provide the best interpolation results. Bilinear and bicubic subpixel interpolation is available with up to 1/16 in x and y resolution. Due to the pixel warping ability the Luna warpbox can process complex and even non-linear warp configurations.

Blending, Black-Level and Color Corrections on Pixel Level

Blend and black level adjustment (MPCDI Alpha and Beta Mapping) can be applied for each color down to pixel level as well. For further color correction purposes a RGB LUT and RGB primaries are implemented according to MPCDI v2.0.

The high image quality is guaranteed by the internal color processing, with 24 bits per color (72 bits per pixel) used continuously during the image processing pipeline. Therefore, true 10-bit support is available on DisplayPort 1.4 input and output.

The warp processing has an interframe processing with a fixed processing time of 50 image lines added to the vertical warp displacement.
