Collaborate and connect: projectiondesign F32 projectors visualize the future for Petrobras Research Centres

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 30 November 2012 Release date- 29112012 - Fredrikstad, Norway - The center was expanded in 2010 and since then Petrobras has continued to invest into the latest visualization innovations and the visual tools necessary for developing research into improvements in existing energy processes and the search for renewable energy sources.


In 2010, the projection room in a virtual reality laboratory was based on a Holoscape, a system that combines the immersive possibilities of a Digital CAVE with a total screen of 15x2.4m. Two years later, absolut technologies helped Petrobras to transform that space into an L SHAPE demonstration room with simultaneous projection onto a frontal screen (with 4k projectors) and, projected towards the ground, 4 F32 projectors from projectiondesign.

Today the center boasts shared visualization rooms, immersive environments with large screens and very high-resolution projections (Cave Lite and L SHAPE), which make Petrobras' visualization work more precise, agile and effective. The collaborative environments are using, among others, automation systems by Crestron, video-conferencing systems, which allow interaction between the different Petrobras virtual reality laboratories, and the F32 series projectors by projectiondesign, featuring WUXGA resolution and reliable DLP technology.

The most powerful of projectiondesign's single-chip DLP projectors, the F32 was designed specifically for very demanding graphic applications in which a large amount of computer-generated image detail needs to be rendered at very high resolution. The range also boasts a wide range of lens options while projectiondesign's RealColor technology facilitates straightforward and reliable colour-matching of multiple projectors - as used at CENPES.

According to Hans Ulmer, Managing Director at absolut technologies, the projectiondesign projectors used in the CENPES installation ensure high image quality with excellent resolution, contrast ratio and brightness.

'The high performance of the F32 projectors makes the collaborative rooms more functional, by enabling users to make faster, more detailed decisions, thus saving time and money', adds Ulmer.
