ProjectionTools: patented high-end camera-based auto-align solution.

ProjectionTools makes alignment process of multiple projectors quick and easy.

Our warp and blend software solution ProjectionTools, generates calibration data that results in a perfectly warped and blended projection, combined with meticulous and precise corrections of color, black levels, and numerous other parameters.

ProjectionTools is a comprehensive suite of software tools specifically designed for multi-projection systems. It offers a range of features that support calibration, alignment, and content adaptation for multi-channel projection setups.

Fields of use:

  • Visual Display Systems for Simulation and Training
  • Fulldomes, Spheres and Dome Cinemas
  • 360° Immersive Cinema
  • Virtual-, Augmented- and Mixed Reality (interactive) Environments

  • Projection Mapping on Objects and Buildings

    • LED Wall Calibration (Virtual Film Production, Events, Trade Shows etc.)

How it works: Industrial PoE cameras capture test patterns that are displayed with a pattern generator and then send these patterns to the software for analysis. Once the analysis is complete, the resulting data is exported to the image generators. The projected images are then precisely warped and blended on the screen.® ProjectionTools are currently available in two packages.

ProjectionTools Pro AV

For complex and large AV projections. One or more cameras, or camera positions, enable a quick and easy measurement and auto alignment. Several exports to media-server, including Projection Mapping.

Depending on the size and complexity of the projection surface, one or more cameras or camera positions enable quick and easy measurement.

    ProjectionTools Pro SIM

    Pro SIM is the toolset for all tasks with demanding requirements for maximum precision and accuracy. For realistic realtime immersive simulations, e.g. flight or driving. Especially for night scenes, black-level corrections can be calculated for each projection. Supports several image generators, 3D engines. This complete toolset is also used for all complex AV and ProjectionMapping installation.

    Supports all type of screens, all mappings, virtual cameras

    Basic Workflow of a warp and blend software solution

    Basic workflow to align multiple projectors using ProjectionTools

    The domeprojection ProjectionTools consist of several interconnected software components. The measurement process starts with an initial recording of the room's geometry and the optical measurement of each individual projection surface, with the assistance of the installed camera or cameras. Used tools: ProjectionTools Creator (CR) and the PatternGenerator (PG). 

    The measurement result is captured and calculated by the Mapper 2D (2D) tool. With the assistance of the integrated Clipping Editor feature, the edges of the image and other desired areas can be cleanly masked if needed. The final result is then exported, providing various exporter options for different hardware/software products.

    ProjectionTools supports a wide range of well-known projector manufacturers, including Barco, Norxe, and even consumer-grade projectors. Moreover, the system is compatible with nearly all professional media server systems, such as Watchout, Resolume, Pixera, and Green Hippo etc. Click here to see all supported media server and here to see all supported image generators

    Watch this video to learn how ProjectonTools can help to align multiple projectors quick and easy.

    Watch this video to learn how to align multiple projectors with ProjectionTools and how to achieve seamless multi-channel projection, delivering perfect warping and blending results, matched geometry, and the highest color and image quality. 

    The video tutorial here is intended for a quick introduction to the software. It shows initiating a project within the ProjectionTools Creator (CR). Other videos show the process of exporting to different media servers such as Watchout, Resolume, Hippotizer, Pixera or 3D engines like Unreal or Unity.

    Version Comparison

    domeprojection ProjectionTools are currently available in two 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).
