Located at Fareham in Hampshire, HMS Collingwood is the Royal Navy’s largest training establishment. The school provides training over a vast range of disciplines, using two ship-bridge simulators to deliver mission realism and a seamless transition from daytime to night-time operational scenarios.
The switch-over has been entirely seamless, and there have been no issues with the projectors whatsoever."
After ten years impeccable service from its Christie DLP platform, the school was ready to move to its second generation of Christie projectors at the Maritime Warfare School (MWS). Seamless high definition blended images were critical to create a totally realistic operating environment.
Visavvi was contracted to upgrade the visual systems and we duly specified and installed twenty high powered Christie DS+6K-M projectors. Nine were deployed on each bridge, with two as spares, to ensure continuous operation during AV maintenance.
The most compact in its class, the high-performance Christie M Series features embedded warping, blending and colour matching capabilities with SXGA+ resolution and 6300 lumens output. The blended images are displayed on a cylindrical wall offering a 270° (9 x 30°) horizontal field of view.
Visavvi partner Softbox (SBL) undertook project management, upgrading the existing cabling infrastructure to DVI fibre with USB connectivity for the 64 PC workstations. This produced a high quality digital signal path to the projectors.
According to Bridge Simulator Manager, David Goddard, it was entirely logical to remain with a brand they could trust and a system integrator in Visavvi that was completely familiar with the environment, having been retained under a service agreement.
