Boeing military pilot training system taps JVC 8K projectors to enhance realism, fidelity, immersion

WAYNE, N.J., 5 Dec. 2012. During the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation, and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in Orlando this week, Boeing (NYSE:BA) is demonstrating its Constant Resolution Visual System (CRVS) that, with the aid of JVC’s e-Shift 8K projection technology, delivers nearly four times the resolution of high definition (HD) and enables more realistic, high-fidelity, and effective military training

CRVS with JVC e-Shift 8K projectors better prepare military pilots by allowing them to train in a more realistic yet safe environment, explains Barry Kuhlmann, visual systems engineering manager at Boeing.

“Image quality counts, whether it’s for entertainment, education, or next-generation flight training,” says Rod Sterling, chief engineer, JVC Technology Center. “We designed our e-Shift 8K projector to register down to 1/16th pixel accuracy to provide the unparalleled clarity and sharpness that Boeing customers demand.”

CRVS provides constant target visibility throughout the entire field of vision, surrounding the pilot and cockpit in an eggshell-like environment that visually transforms into cities, landscapes, and complex combat scenarios, says a representative.

CRVS is compatible with a range of fast jet and rotary-wing cockpits and aviator night-vision goggles, and integrates with current and future head-mounted displays (HMDs). Existing CRVS customers can upgrade to JVC e-Shift 8K without modifying screens or structure.
