2011: First to provide real-time image processing for HMDs

The challenge

Sensics products at that time incorporated tiled micro-displays to simultaneously provide high pixel density and panoramic field of view. These displays were arranged in unique angles and each required a separate video signal. Thus, it was typical to have a computer cluster or a graphics card with many video outputs to drive this HMD. Additionally, the application had to implement multiple viewports.

The solution

Sensics designed a unique real-time video processing board that incorporated multiple synchronized FPGA and a unique low-latency architecture. Each board could drive six separate displays with a single HD1080 video input.

The result

The system that previously required a computer cluster to drive, could now be operated with a notebook computer. Customers were delighted at the simplified configuration both in terms of software as well as cabling.
