In: Press Release

Hvalstad, Norway, 27 November 2017 – 3D perception Inc. (3DP) is proud to announce its 20 year anniversary as the simulation industry’s leading visual display technology developer and integrator. Since 1997 3DP has steadily innovated and grown into a global leader with offices in Norway, the United States, and China.

The company began when Knut Krogstad, co-founder and CEO, led the development of the world’s first digital projector capable of warping and blending for curved-screen, multi-channel, simulator displays. The early success of this product led to later innovations that disintegrated these features from the projector, and in 2001 were built into a separate display processor, CompactUTM™, opening up the selection of projector models to a much wider catalog. The market responded very favorably, and this model of allowing the simulator display system to operate as a discrete sub-system was quickly adopted.

3DP built on this trend, developing several supportive products including the 2005 launch of their now iconic Aurora™ Click-Dome, with the industry’s fastest and most precise automatic image alignment technology, WarpSync™, built right into the screen. 3DP developed a software toolkit, now called nDesigner™, for highly accurate predictive modeling of system performance, and added complete display design and integration to their capabilities. In 2010, the company released their next-generation display processor, nBox™, and unified their display product ecosystem under the moniker, Northstar™. Additional supportive products were launched to further enhance the Northstar offering including ChromaSync™ screen-mounted sensors for automatic color and luminance calibration and Dynamic Optical Blenders™ for automatically optimizing contrast while erasing the appearance of blend-zones for all scenario day-times. In 2016 3DP launched a line of pre-configured turn-key Northstar systems, ideally packaged around certain applications such as fast-jet or large field of view helicopter. Now with over 10,000 visual channels fielded globally, 2017 marks the company’s 20th year of continual innovation and evolution.

“Our success and longevity is due in part to our continuous improvement of our products,” commented Krogstad, “but our ultimate strength lies in our ability to dynamically adapt to our customer’s needs and tailor our offerings per program.”

To prepare the organization for further growth, in 2017, 3DP appointed two new senior level managers, Anders Fagerhaug and Cato Mortensen, both with many years of experience in the simulation industry background in aviation and the military. 3DP has also grown their program management staff and within the business development team.

In celebration of their anniversary, 3DP will host a special reception during the I/ITESC simulation conference in Orlando, Florida from November 27th to December 1st. At the conference, 3DP will showcase their updated Northstar product line including nBox with Display Port interfacing, and their new content-aware Dynamic Optical Blenders. The booth will feature a large Aurora dome screen and 4 channels of Barco F70 4K UHD laser-phosphor projectors, automatically warped & blended via nBox 4K. More info at www.iitsec.org.
