Scalable Display Technologies Wins 2009 Presagis Award
Scalable Display Technologies, a leading provider of software for multi-projector display systems, today announced that it was named the "Most Valuable Partner" at the second annual Presagis™ award dinner, held at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in Orlando, Florida. Presagis, a leading provider of commercial-off-the shelf (COTS) modeling, simulation and embedded graphics solutions, bestows the awards to recognize companies that are using COTS tools to push the boundaries of modeling and simulation in military markets and create innovative applications in emerging markets.
Scalable Display Technologies was recognized for its EasyBlend™ software, which automates and simplifies the creation of seamless high-intensity, high-resolution displays. EasyBlend offers the greatest level of technical precision in the industry, making it the ideal auto-calibration technology for military simulations.
Presagis singled out Scalable Display for its auto-calibration of a visual simulation system installed at the U.S. Naval Air Strike and Air Warfare Center. Combined with Vega Prime from Presagis, Scalable Display's software plays a critical role in delivering high-fidelity images displayed on a large partial dome screen.
"COTS tools are firmly entrenched in the military market because they streamline development and help in delivery of compelling and highly realistic training and simulation applications more quickly and with greater cost-savings," said Nick Giannias, Vice President, Research and Technology, Presagis. "As a result, we are now seeing customers leverage COTS tools to develop scenarios that help trainees in new sectors, such as construction, offshore oil and gas, and first response, to master potentially hazardous jobs and to train for unexpected emergency situations. We are excited that our award winners are using our technology in ways that we have never seen before, and we are proud to be the company providing them with the software to achieve their vision."
"We're proud to be honored with this prestigious award," said Scalable CEO Andrew Jamison. "Our collaboration with Presagis on the U.S. Navy visual simulation system was a great success, and we look forward to working with them again in the future to deliver the next generation of display visual systems for military applications."
