AGCO, the agricultural machinery firm, has used Pro Display’s Ultra Black rear projection screens to create a virtual reality 3D tractor simulator. The projection screens form the front and side walls of the Cave Automatic Virtual Environment (CAVE), which is housed at AGCO’s R&D facility, near Beauvais in France.
The CAVE uses three Ultra Black rear projection acrylic screens, covering a total projected area of over 11sqm.
Pro Display’s Ultra Black screens deliver contrast levels, colour saturation and pixel resolution, all of which combine to create an immersive environment. The jet black projection surface is diffused with millions of crystal lenses, distributing light across the surface for quality imagery and wide viewing angles.
Christophe Laplace, virtual reality lead at AGCO, commented: “The display quality of Pro Display’s products is incredible. Virtual reality specialists who visited our CAVE recently were impressed by the display contrast and precise resolution. We’re really looking forward to the product development benefits that the simulator will bring.”
Pro Display’s Ben Kershaw added: “It’s extremely rewarding to see our products in cutting edge specialist AV environments like AGCO’s CAVE. Our focus, as ever, remains on developing display products that help our clients get the very best performance from their AV installations.”
