Quantum3D is now offering a Mixed Reality Image Generation (MR IG) Visual System

Milpitas, CA – November 5, 2021 – Quantum3D, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of real-time visual simulation systems, is now offering affordable Mixed Reality Image Generation (MR IG) Visual Systems to its valuable commercial and military customers.

With this new system, Varjo XR-3 eye-limiting resolution headsets are integrated with Quantum3D’s Independence IDX image generator and Quantum3D’s award winning MANTIS image generation software.

Quantum3D’s mixed reality visual system eliminates the need for expensive multi-channel dome display systems while maintaining full 360 degree visuals for the trainee pilot. This can substantially reduce the physical footprint of the simulator, the initial purchase cost, and ongoing maintenance costs.

With the hi-res camera passthrough capability of the Varjo XR-3 headset, Mantis provides the capability to create mixed reality solutions whereby a masked region defines where the real world is visible. This is typically used to allow a real world cockpit mockup to be used interactively by the pilot. The capability for the trainee to see both their own hands and the real cockpit eliminates the problem encountered in pure VR systems in which the trainee is unable to coordinate interaction with real world controls.

Quantum3D’s MANTIS software supports using two GPU’s combined with NVIDIA’s VR SLI technology to render the scene for both eyes in parallel, which allows more complex and higher quality environments to be generated while maintaining a consistent 90fps update rate, which is required to avoid stutters when the eye location is moving.

The system will be exhibited at I/ITSEC 2021 in Orlando, the world’s largest modeling, simulation, and training event, as a part of Quantum3D’s Cessna 172 Aircraft Simulator. Quantum3D’s new immersive technology can be integrated with all kinds of military and civilian aircrafts in the market.

Quantum3D’s mixed reality Image Generation System consists of:

  • Independence IDX Image generation system with SLI compatible motherboard, 12 or 16 core Intel i9 CPU, and two SLI’d NVIDIA RTX 3090 GPU’s
  • MANTIS Image Generation software
  • Professional grade Varjo XR-3 mixed reality headset with one-year subscription (with option for lifetime subscription)
  • A Pair of HTC SteamVR Base Station 2.0 for stable tracking

Visit Quantum3D’s booth 635 at IITSEC 2021 to experience this new technology or contact the Quantum3D team to see a virtual demonstration of the system.
