First I’d like to say that we are in no way affiliated with the company we are about to share with you. We’re just exited about what we found and want to get the word out.

Over here at TouchMi we are very exited about a new product that we found. Its called Immersive Display Lite 2 by a company called Fly Elise-ng (links at the end of the post). It allows you to warp and blend up to three projectors (4 coming soon) and is quite easy to do. To answer the really big questions, Yes, it will warp and blend CCV calibration, MT4J, and it seems nearly any directX or OpenGL application.

Now I’m sure it will warp and blend quite a few other apps but these are the ones we tested and we love it. Here are two vids we made for the group showing what it does and one actually warping and blending the new beta of the multi cam CCV with 4 PS3eye cameras.

Needless to say it’s beautiful and we could not wait to share this with you guys. Oh yeah BTW did we mention you can do all this for about $60USD? Here are the vids:

First, Immersive Display Lite 2 warping Tutorial:

Second, CCV 4 Camera setup Tutorial:

Let us know what you think! smile

That’s awesome!  How is the resource utilization for 4 cameras?  Can you give you hardware specs, resource utilization and fps?  Really, really appreciate the videos, that bar looks really great.

Anat:  We were actually thinking of building a sectional calibration grid with IR Leds spaced out to match the surface but the stick seems to work fine for now smile

Guiness:  It’s a Core i5 with 4 gigs of ram running from a 40Gb SSD.  Not really a monster of a box, but CPU averages around 10%

rogiermars:  4 PS3 eye cams set to 320x240 running at around 45fps.  They Total resolution is 1280x240.  Not great, but enough for our purposes.  Would love to get this up to 2560x480 at 60fps though smile

We should have more info/demos/videos up shortly.

Great work and an excellent video.

I also am excited about this software find.

I did want to ask about your projectors.  You stated that you’re overshooting the surface by a fair amount.  What type of projectors are you using?

Hey there Grim. Glad to see you here

The projectors we are using are Mitsubishi-EW230U-ST . Very awesome projectors for the price and amazing throw distance. Here is the link Our Projector

Just a few short specs

HDMI
1080P
2500 ANSI Lumens
and at 2’ from surface it throws about 56” diagnal or 61 cm. from surface will throw a 144cm Diag image - not too shabby

Hope that helps

First you need to set up your warp with the setup tool.

Once you have the screen warped and blended correctly, run the warploader2 program.  The first time you run it it will ask you for the application to warp.

With MT4J, you need to package your application as an EXE and then point warploader2 at that file.
