Virtual Reality and 3D immersive solutions integrator, Antycip Simulation, has announced its new UK demo centre in its Adderbury office, to help support its UK and international customers by adding product demonstration, modelling, analysis and laboratory facility capabilities.
Created in partnership with projector manufacturer Barco, The Hub is equipped with a single face VR Cave, a power wall and a spherical display, and follows the launch of a similar facility near Milan, Italy.
Antycip Simulation suggests that The Hub will help it address the growing requirement for VR technologies in the design, academic and engineering sectors, with the latest display solutions complemented by a broad portfolio of software solutions for simulation, analysis and digital rendering.
The single face VR Cave station features a Barco F90 projector and is fitted with Vicon tracking cameras. This station can also be integrated with a HTC Vive to demonstrate collaborative working in VR across multiple platforms and locations, making it the perfect solution for a number of industries including automotive, oil and gas, architecture or medical, where decision making and project validation are important.
Visitors can also make use of an impressive 5.8m x 2.1m Antycip Simulation power wall, with content fed by two Barco F50 projectors providing a seamless image.
Finally, a spherical display boasts a 4m x 2.2m screen with a horizontal field of view of 180 degrees. It is powered by two Barco F70 projectors with warping and blending capability to provide an impressive curved image, giving users a highly realistic display for a range of simulation applications.
“We’re thrilled to open Antycip Simulation’s second Regional Demo Centre, in our UK offices,” said Chris Waldron, Antycip Simulation UK regional manager.
“Customers can now visit us for demonstrations, training, testing and reviews in ways which were not possible in the past, enabling us to be an even better partner to them in finding the perfect solution for their project requirements.”
