Christie projectors have been fitted by AGCO Corporation as part of the installation of a 3D virtual reality powerwall at its engineering facility in Minnesota.
A pair of Christie D4K3560 3-Chip DLP 4K projectors running at 60Hz were selected by the agricultural machinery company, which is hoping the powerwall will reduce its costs.
AGCO had already used Christie technology at its FENDT Research and Development facility in Germany and was so impressed it decided to install them as part of the powerwall project in Jackson, Minnesota.
Joseph Black, senior business analyst at AGCO, described the powerwall as "an incredibly instrumental and useful part of our engineering process".
He added: "By reviewing the models virtually we are able to catch interferences, perform clearance checks and fix engineering designs ahead of prototyping, allowing us to create fewer prototypes before the final product is ready."
Jennifer Smith, executive vice president of global market solutions at Christie, explained that the company's D4K3560 3-Chip DLP 4K projectors were the ideal choice for the AGCO powerwall as they offer users "the highest resolution, highest brightness and highest quality image and video displays available today".
Christie recently previewed the latest addition to its Mirage 4K platform, the Christie Mirage 4KLH, which the firm says is ideal for 3D applications for advanced visualisation.
