We’ve just about finished up our prototype bar and so we figured it’s time to make an account and post it.
Screwfunk and myself are based in Japan and we have been working on something for a while now and we figured we’d toss it in here to see what everyone thinks:
Keep in mind that we hastily calibrated the system because we were running out of time to take the video. We’ll post a more polished video once we have everything finished.
As the title says, this is a 2 meter prototype/demo unit that we use to show customers what kind of product they are going to get. Our “showcase” version I guess you could say.
The bar we’re building for our next customer will be 5 meters long.
Our setup is as follows:
2m of 8mm plexi with HoloContraM projection film on the bottom.
2 Short throw projectors in a rear projection setup
The 2 projectors are overlapped by about 15%
The projectors are connected via HDMI to DVI cables to a single ATI 5770 card’s DVI ports
The desktop is using EyeFinity to appear as a single desktop
We’re using software to do projector blending ,geometric correction and color matching. (more on this in another post)
At this time we’re running MT4J and it runs great. We’re going to try out some other frameworks in the next couple of days and see how those perform as well.
We’re also looking for Java, Python, and/or .NET programmers for some custom application work. if anyone’s interested, drop me a PM. Initial work would be done on a per-app basis, but could definitely evolve into a full time position.
Any and all comments are appreciated.
