Christie®, a leader in creating and sharing the world’s best visual and audio
experiences, recently announced the launch of AccuFrame™ Pro. Pro software
reduces visual artifacts, like smear, that contribute to “negative training’ – a
simulated environment that gives false visual and motion cues  by targeting low-
to-mid intensity content at the pixel level, without reducing brightness caused by
shortening the time each frame is displayed in a simulator.

“By reducing smear at the pixel level, images appear sharper and moving images
look more realistic,’ says Curtis Lingard, product manager, Christie. “AccuFrame
Pro eliminates the need for additional projectors to compensate for the loss of
brightness by targeting low-to-mid intensity content, where most simulated content

AccuFrame Pro is activated via a licensing process for any Matrix StIM™ WQ, Matrix
SIM WQ and Mirage WQ-L projector in the field, thereby improving existing
installations without the need to purchase higher resolution projectors. Accuframe
Pro enhances dynamic image quality at both 60Hz and 120Hz.

Aero Simulation Inc., (ASI) awarded Christie a contract for the display system
refresh of T-45C Operational Flight Trainers, at the Naval Air Station in Meridian,
Mississippi. The trainer upgrades, based upon Christie Matrix StIM-WQ projectors
with Accuframe Pro, will provide the full range of out-the-window visual images
required for pilot training. ASI is Christie’s “launch customer’ for AccuFrame Pro.

Vlad Argintaru, ASI’s Senior Visual Systems Engineer stated, “AccuFrame Pro
presents a significant improvement over traditional smear reduction methods,
resulting in increased dynamic resolution in Christie simulation projectors. While
most current methods typically impose a significant reduction in image brightness,
AccuFrame Pro effectively controls image smear, while minimizing brightness loss.
These features are of particular benefit to a simulation program for an aircraft such
as the T-45C, which as a fast jet requires maximum image smear reduction, as well
as high brightness to support training objectives for night-time landings on aircraft
carriers using landing aid systems.’

Visitors to I/ITSEC (30 Nov – 4 Dec 2015, Orlando) can experience the powerful
impact of AccuFrame Pro in action on Booth 2627 where Christie’s three-channel
front projected display will show an air model simulation at 120Hz using the Christie
Matrix StIM WQ system.
