Independence® IDX 80
Tremendous value. Tiny footprint. Total performance.
“The new IG from Quantum3D with GeoScape® WWDB, the industry’s first seamless worldwide coverage utilizing drop in high-resolution insets, the SoCal sample database and from our growing library of airfields, the San Francisco International Level D airport.”
Equipped with Quantum3D’s award-winning MANTIS® software, the Independence IDX 80 provides exceptional value and performance for small and medium complexity visual systems with up to 8 channels. IDX 80 is ideal for many simulation applications, including: Fixed-Wing Aviation (up to Level D), Weapons and Gunnery Systems, Hardware-in-the-loop Sensor Simulation, Maritime and Ship’s Bridge, Automotive Research, Development and Driving Simulators, Ground Vehicles, Fixed Base and Forward Air Traffic Control, Mono & Stereo Scientific Visualization and Virtual Reality.
As the entry-level model in the Independence IG series, the IDX 80 shares many of the architectural features of the flagship IDX 8000 model, but is design-optimized for applications which require 4 or less total GPUs. It can drive up to 4 full-performance display channels, or up to 8 displays when running its GPUs in a dual-output mode.
Like the IDX 8000, the smaller IDX 80 offers a choice of the most powerful NVIDIA “Maxwell”-series Quadro GPUs, combined with a reliable enterprise-grade Intel Xeon-based server platform. IDX 80 also offers the same robust hardware video channel synchronization technology as our larger systems.
But unlike competitive IG’s which require a four-foot or taller rack and 3 or 4 separate PC’s just to drive a 3-channel display, the IDX 80 comes neatly packaged in a compact 4U-high case containing the entire IG system. IDX 80 can either be mounted in a standard 19″ rack with plenty of room left for other customer equipment, or can simply stand alone in a PC pedestal configuration.
Features and Benefits
Long Term Support
3 year warranty or 10 year service support under Quantum3D’s obsolescence guarantee program.
The IDX 80 achieves unmatched levels of visual computing density by combining a server-class motherboard, latest Intel processors, up to two NVIDIA Quadro “Kepler” GPUs, and Quadro Sync Precision Video Synchronization into a compact 1U Rendering Unit (IGU).
The IDX 80 supports industry-standard CIGI 3.x messaging protocol over dedicated Gigabit Ethernet, and industry-standard database formats including OpenFlight, NPSI, CDB, and CTDB.
World Wide Database
The IDX 80 supports Quantum3D’s World Wide Database (WWDB) - a continuous flight, worldwide terrain, modeled with 15m geo-specific imagery. Drop-in Hi-Res insets are customer-enabled using CatalystSE DBGS tools.
High Resolution Channels
Super High-resolution, multiple-input, projectors (e.g. 4K x 2K) are supported with no additional effort.
The IDX 80 supports QUEST®2 and viXsen for correlated, physics-based NVG, IR, Day Camera EO Simulation applications and Stimulated NVG applications.
IDX 80 is ideal for many simulation applications, including: Fixed-Wing Aviation (up to Level D), Weapons and Gunnery Systems, Hardware-in-the-loop Sensor Simulation, Maritime and Ship’s Bridge, Automotive Research, Development and Driving Simulators, Ground Vehicles, Fixed Base and Forward Air Traffic Control, Mono & Stereo Scientific Visualization and Virtual Reality.
