Captec releases ground-breaking new hardware platform for simulation and training applications
Virtual training that provides a real-life environment is essential in the modern world within aerospace, construction and mining to name a few. The more realistic the training feels to the operator, the more effective the training becomes.
Accurate simulation applications require high-performance computing with cutting-edge technology to deliver the best results. The greatest challenge lies in producing high-intensity, immersive graphics with a real-time experience while ensuring minimum latency or data lagging, and using multiple displays or projectors with perfect synchronisation to provide a real-life feel.
Hardware is a vital component and cutting costs without any impact on performance is prohibitive…until now. Designer and manufacturer of specialist computing platforms, Captec, have re-engineered the typical simulation computing platform with their new product – Quadbox.
The Quadbox exists to solve known and proven challenges experienced by simulator manufacturers, and to bring innovation, solutions and benefits to that space. Featuring four independent Image Generation (IG) systems in one 4U enclosure, combining Intel Core I processors and nVidia GPUs, this unique and powerful design offers the same performance as four individual IG’s while saving on space, weight and reducing maintenance and repair time. The option of an integrated Quadro Sync kit enables the independent graphics outputs to be used for multiple displays to form one immersive display without timing and display artifacts.
