StereoMirror Provides Best Real-Time Display

  Have you ever tried to figure out how to get the best image quality for aerial photography product processing and triangulation of ortho photos? According to AeroTech Mapping Inc., Planar's 3D StereoMirror monitor provides an image that is almost as clear as the negative itself. They have three displays for triangulation and compilation, which is the process of collecting digital data from stereo photography for use in creating topographical maps. They use Datem Systems' Summit Evolution software and three P-3 analytical plotters. With several StereoMirror monitors in their office, including an SD1710 and SD2020, AeroTech has doubled their More…

Sailing news from Finland!

  The other day, I received some photographs on my e-mail, which made me conclude that Planar’s 12” marine monitors have found a permanent home in Finland. In the picture above you see LX1201PTI integrated on to the sailboat steering pedestal.   Our Finnish marine monitor distributor Navigreen is working in close co-operation with yacht builder Finngulf Yachts. They have just completed a project to create a 43 feet Performance Cruiser yacht, this being hull #3 of the project Finngulf 43. The good news for us is, that the yacht’s hi-tec equipment include two LX1200s. The original order for the yacht was made by Pekka Salminen and everything More…

If it is durable enough for OLPC is it rugged enough for Planar?

Pixel Qi, is on a quest to lower the cost of an LCD. The originating work was done while Mary Lou Jepsen was at the One Laptop Per Child project. Wired gives a report on the current state of Pixel Qi. I think everyone would like a lower cost LCD, but as with lower cost PC's there will probably be compromises. What do you suppose those will be in the LCD world? Viewing angle? Temperature range? Response time? Size? Could this technology be interesting to Planar's quest for ruggedized displays? We'll stay tuned...

StereoMirror Used For Aerial Surveys

  Providing accurate 3D photogrammetric mapping is complicated and photogrammetrists are always looking for monitors that will improve their viewing experiences and aid in verifying data. Planar's StereoMirror SD2420W with Planar's PX 2411W has been used by Keystone Aerial Surveys, Inc. to suit their needs moving into a complete digital workflow and provide better image quality.In verifying the accuracy of Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) used in their orthophoto production process, Keystone's team was able to confirm that the data was "correct" and then, if needed, correct any problem areas quickly and effectively using a StereoMirror. They use Inpho More…
