ProjectionTools

domeprojection.com® ProjectionTools is the most versatile automatic display calibration system on the market for calibration of arbitrary screen shapes.

It is scalable from portable, easy-to-use single camera systems for installations which can be captured by one camera (also support of fisheye lens) up to hi-end fixed installations requiring multi-camera calibration. No matter which ProjectionTools system you use, it will always facilitate you – as opposed to competitive products – by offering no limitation in projection channels, projection resolution (including 4K/ channel) and screen shapes. ProjectionTools will enable you to use any warp and blend solution or media server you choose.

Version Comparison

domeprojection.com® ProjectionTools are currently available in three suites.

All suites will provide you with tools which are easy to use and flexible to fetch out the maximum quality of your projection display.

The software is licensed per channel, which is typically one projection-channel. If the projector is fed by multiple sources, it might be more. Each channel has one correction set (warping, blending, black level correction).

ProjectionTools Single-Cam AV – projection quality at speed!

The single camera auto-cal suite of ProjectionTools allows you a set-up of a multi channel single camera calibration – yet delivering a final result of high accuracy and flexibility. The single camera’s fast set-up and speedy recalibration makes it ideal for staging, rental and event.

ProjectionTools Pro AV

ProjectionTools Pro AV is the software package for the precise setup of large media installations. Depending on the size and complexity of the projection screen, one or more cameras or camera positions enable a quick and easy measurement by means of our tool Creator.

The mapping will be configured and exported two-dimensionally (Mapper 2D). On top, our ProjectionTools allow absolute image brilliance by adjusting the brightness, clipping, fade-out and blending.

ProjectionTools Pro Sim

ProjectionTools Pro Sim is the dedicated toolset to install and optimise visual display and projection systems for simulation and training environments and meets the demanding requirements of realistic visualization. Precise measurement of the screen and of the projection will be done by using the software tool Creator. Afterwards, the eye points as well as the virtual cameras will be adjusted in the module Mapper 3D. The blending will then be optimally determined according to the virtual cameras. By adjusting the brightness, clipping and fade-out, you will experience realistic immersive flight or driving simulations. Especially for night scenes, black-level corrections can be calculated for each projection. For a high-end experience during night simulations, specifications for optical blend masks can also be derived from the measured data. These blend masks, called NBlend, offer the highest image quality and unsurpassed black. Especially in the fading ranges of the simulation, no transitions in brightness will be seen.

Exporters

ProjectionsTools integrate a variety of hard and software into your visual system. The measurement data resulting from the projection will be exported and stored for a variety of simulation software, warp and blend hardware, projectors and graphics cards.

domeprojection.com® offers the possibility of using generic exporters. Thus you are able to integrate our calibration data into your software directly and independent of 3rd party warping and blending solutions.

The tables below provide a selection of possible exporters which are available. If your system is not supported please contact us with details about your project.
