For easy and fast alignment of complex multi-screen projection systems to their maximum capabilities, Barco has developed its own proprietary dedicated software.
With an intuitive user interface, Barco’s Polaris software is driven by multi-pipe, multi-channel image generators to calculate and generate user-specified pre-distorted test patterns.
The user enters the dimensions and shape of the screen (flat, cylindrical, spherical, toroidal, dome-shaped, conical) and Polaris calculates and generates the pre-distorted geometry, gray scale and color alignment patterns.
Camera settings and parameters for each display channel can be specified in coordinates or as field-of-view angles, either symmetrical or asymmetrical.
When applicable, patterns can be saved independently from the graphics configuration of the image generator.
