ProjectionTools

What are the domeprojection.com®  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-Cam AV version for installations which can be captured by one camera (also support of fisheye lens) to Pro AV or Pro Sim requiring multi-camera calibration and up to hi-end fix AutoAlignment installations.

ProjectionTools will enable you to use any warp and blend solution or media server you choose.

ProjectionsTools – which suite is the right one for you?

Single-Cam AV

The Single-Cam AV package allows you a set-up of a multi channel single camera calibration with a final result of high accuracy and flexibility. A fast set-up and speedy recalibration makes it ideal for staging, rental and events.

Pro AV

The Pro AV suite 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.

Pro Sim

Pro SIM is the toolset for simulation and training environments with the demanding requirements of realistic visualization with high precision and accuracy. By adjusting the brightness, clipping, fade-out and blending and black-level correction you will experience realistic immersive flight or driving simulations.

ProjectionTools Single-Cam AV

Projection quality at speed!

The Single-Cam AV 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 events.

ProjectionTools Pro AV

Large Multi-channel Media Installations

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 using the Mapper 2D. On top, our ProjectionTools allow absolute image brilliance by adjusting the brightness, clipping, fade-out and blending.

Projection in a Driving Simulator

ProjectionTools Pro Sim

Simulation and training environments with high precision and accuracy

ProjectionTools Pro Sim is the dedicated toolset to install and optimize 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.

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).

Exporter

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  MPCDI export and 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.
