StereoMirror Goes to West Point

  Military Geospatial Technology covered the Geospatial Information Science program at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. The article includes a shot of a current cadet using Planar's StereoMirror.   At the heart of that effort is the Geospatial Information Science (GISc) degree program, one of five majors within the Geography and Environmental Engineering Department. The goal of the GISc program, according to its Website, is to give "future Army officers, regardless of branch, the knowledge set to leverage these tools when leading soldiers in our high-tech digital Army."from Geospatial Academy, Military Geospatial More…

3D Display Immersed in Work

The February issue of ProAV magazine has a great article on how 3D/stereoscopic technology is being used in professional applications. The article includes stats about the growth of the 3D market and photos of other 3D environments. Planar's own Scott Robinson, StereoMirror Product Manager, gets quoted throughout the piece. “They found that the 3D view has reduced false positives by something like 49 percent and false negatives by 40 percent,” says Robinson, product manager ofstereoscopic displays at Planar. “What we're seeing in the medical market is that we need to go through some of these clinical trials and give evidence that not only does a More…

LCD Enhancements & Optical Bonding

Our operations and engineering teams have been hard at work expanding our optical bonding capabilities. This process provides substantial improvements to the ruggedness and clarity of LCDs. We have even added a new whitepaper to our collection to explain how it works. Achieving Greater Legibility on Displays Utilizing Optical Bonding and Anti-Reflective Surface Treatments This paper provides an understanding of how optical bonding with anti-reflective surface treatments enhance TFTs for better readability in bright ambient viewing conditions.
