Here are some questions for you:How much did each unit cost by the way?Which model of Samsung did you get?How did you hook them up, HDMI or DVI?This is 3 computers using Xplane, with each one having an LCD hooked to it right?Is this still with NTHUSIM or just through Xplane for any warping?Have you tried it through FSX yet, if not, will you do so just to get a look at it?Okay, no more questions... Otherwise, just email me back.John
Quote from: sagrada737 on January 14, 2013, 01:16:19 PMHello Maurice,In this regard, what is best - lower frame rate and less distortion, or higher frame rate with the side-views slightly distorted? It seems to me that most of the attention is given to the Center display, but I might be incorrect in this assessment.Mike
Quote from: sagrada737 on January 14, 2013, 02:32:35 PMThanks for the comments Maurice. I think I can see now why the side distortion would be less in a single view mode 3-monitor setup vs. a projection setup. So it seems it is a trade-off as to side distortion vs. the frame rate hit for improved overall display quality. Like you stated, it would be fairly easy to test. But when I try to setup for un-docked views using my TH2G, the display doesn't allow moving the newly created L/R views - they are always straight ahead. Perhaps this is not possible to accomplish this using the TH2G, or there is something else I don't understand about un-docking views at this point. Any advice?Mike
Quote from: nicd on January 15, 2013, 12:58:58 AMCool. But I'm not running out to buy TVs just yet .I'm in the latter stages of development with a 5 panel continuous screen, 5 projector solution (ordinary XGA short throws) that gets rid of the blurries and fiuzzies, is clear, bright and sharp. No pixelation issues, no sim-shell shadows, no warping needed, no TH2GO, no surround/eyefinity, really good framerates, and on one PC. The best bits for me is that it's impossible to see the bottom and top of the visuals from the pilot seats through any of the windows (4:3 rather than 16:9 makes a big difference here), and there are no bezels or joins (definite deal breakers for me personally). Plus its approx.240 degrees wraparound so no masking of rear windows needed. Current TV technology just can't match these features for a similar price (that may change in the future I guess.)I'll post up some info and pics down the track as I get things finalised and stable. But thought I should post some news on progress before everyone throws out their projectors! cheersNic
Quote from: fsaviator on January 15, 2013, 09:51:32 AMI have four massive plasmas in my office at work... they have to be at least 100 inches... they go to our old VTC suite we just replaced with 120" ers (I think).... They are easily six foot wide and at least four foot high each.I wonder if I can borrow them for a few years. I was going to use them for computer monitors.
