Christie launches AccuFrame Pro projector software
World leading projector manufacturer Christie has announced the launch of AccuFrame Pro projector software.

AccuFrame Pro is software designed to reduce visual artefacts that contribute to "negative training", or a simulated environment that gives false visual and motion cues.

The software works by targeting low-to-mid intensity content at the pixel level while avoiding a reduction in brightness that can be caused by reducing the time each frame is displayed.

According to Curtis Lingard, product manager at Christie, AccuFrame reduces visual smear, helping images appear sharper and more realistic while compensating for the loss of brightness often experienced in most simulated content.

Although only newly launched, AccuFrame Pro technology has already been used by Aero Simulation Inc for the display system refresh of T-45C Operational Flight Trainers at the Naval Air Station in Meridian, Mississippi.

Based on the use of Christie Matrix StlM-WQ projectors, the software will offer the naval station a full range of out-the-window visual images required for pilot training.

Vlad Argintaru, ASI's Senior Visual Systems Engineer, has stated that AccuFrame Pro provided a significant improvement over the traditional smear reduction methods trailed in flight trainers, offering an increased dynamic resolution when used with Christie simulation projectors.

"While most current methods typically impose a significant reduction in image brightness, AccuFrame Pro effectively controls image smear, while minimising brightness loss," he said. "These features are of particular benefit to a simulation program for an aircraft such as the T-45C, which as a fast jet requires maximum image smear reduction."
