Challenge: Dassault Systèmes is a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions. It offers a portfolio of software products aimed at accurately rendering high-quality 3D content for designers, engineers and teams of decision-makers. For their showroom and auditorium at their new DS Campus, they wanted the most high-end display system available to best showcase its PLM solutions to customers and partners.
Solution: The I-Space system Barco created for Dassault Systèmes is the world’s first system with seven native HD projectors, and superflat, high-contrast Barco screens. Four of these projectors power the wide front screen, while two are used for the side screen, and an additional one for the floor. Furthermore, it was specifically designed for multi-channel operation, with built-in features that guarantee one seamless composite image free of color, light or geometry disturbances. In addition, Dassault Systèmes’ 300-seat 3D auditorium is driven by a 9-meters wide Barco CADWall system. Through integration with Barco’s XDS Control Center software suite, the system’s users can select, control and edit a multitude of sources simultaneously in a familiar Windows user environment.
Why Barco: Barco is a Technology Partner of Dassault through the latter's alliance program. Barco’s customers often use Dassault Systèmes’ 3DVIA Virtools software on their display systems. Both companies worke together on industry initiatives that seek to raise industry awareness on the importance of 3D stereo visualization in collaborative applications for engineering or public purposes.
