Barco is providing an immersive, custom-designed visual display system, serving as the centerpiece of Dassault Systèmes’ high-profile Executive Briefing Center housed within its brand new North American headquarters in Waltham, Massachusetts. Dassault Systèmes chose Barco’s Powerwall, a sophisticated 3D visualization solution, in keeping with its commitment to leading-edge sustainable technology and ergonomic design aesthetics, which are reflected throughout the new 27-acre corporate campus.

A world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, Dassault Systèmes has embraced Barco’s immersive visualization and collaboration system to demonstrate its industry-leading 3DEXPERIENCE platform, aimed at accurately rendering high-quality 3D content for designers, engineers, marketers and teams of decision-makers. These applications include 3DVIA for Product Communications and Training applications, CATIA for 3D Digital Product Experience, DELMIA for Digital Manufacturing and Production and SIMULIA for Virtual Simulation.

“Our new Experience Briefing Center offers an incredibly powerful demonstration of 3D, with unmatched visual quality and fidelity,” comments Al Bunshaft, Senior Vice President of Dassault Systèmes’ Americas Corporation. “The new Barco display system is an integral part in immersing our customers in a 3D environment where they can virtually experience real world situations, improve collaboration and design better products and solutions for their end users.”

Dassault Systèmes is using a modified version of Barco’s Powerwall, called a Reconfigurable Cave Display, which enables reconfiguration of the system from a cave to a Powerwall to enhance its functionality for a multitude of applications.  Outfitted with Barco’s Galaxy NW-12 projectors, the system offers high-performance stereoscopic viewing of 3D images, featuring 12,000 lumens brightness and WUXGA resolution, and is easily controlled via a familiar Windows desktop. Multi-projector integration is optimized via Barco’s unique DynaColor and linked constant light output, edge blending and warping capabilities.
