Perfect 3D-Stereo Visualization for Geospatial Applications
3D-Stereoscopic Visualization is the ideal solution for geospatial applications such as Photogrammetry, 3D LiDAR data acquisition, GIS/mapping, Archeology, Oil & Gas Research or BIM (Building Information Modeling). A bright, high-contrast stereoscopic image is essential for accurate analysis and interpretation.
Due to this need, a range of stereo capable software applications has been created by leading industry players such as Esri ArcGIS Pro, Agisoft Metashape and Terrasolid TerraStereo; Trimble-INPHO DTMaster; BAE Systems SOCET GXP; and DJ-Innovations DJI Terra.
HexAGON’s ImageStation(r) photogrammetry application offers powerful stereo functions for smooth roaming, dynamic zoom and real-time image enhancement. It also enables interactive compilation of airborne, satellite and UAS data with geospatial datasets thanks to its base in GeoMedia GIS environment.
Combining a stereoscopic monitor and stereo-capable software application creates the ideal workspace environment for perfect 3D-Stereo visualization in any professional field of applications. This is made possible thanks to reliable dual screen beam splitter technology which ensures fatigue-free 3D-Stereo operations and continuous professional use without interruption.
A flicker-free display on a high-resolution screen combined with an intuitive user interface ensures an effortless working experience. The passive stereo display technology of 3D PluraView monitors provides very high brightness – essential for office daylight conditions.
Schneider Digital’s 3D PluraView dual-screen beam splitter monitors are ideal for all stereophotogrammetry, GIS/Mapping and imaging applications. Their flicker-free performance, high brightness and brilliant contrast make them perfect in daylight viewing conditions; plus they are compatible with most stereo software programs. Furthermore, their wide viewing angle offers multi-user capability as well as an immersive presentation medium in large format stereo sound.
PluraView monitors offer flicker-free operation, so users can work comfortably in a 3D stereo environment for extended periods without feeling fatigued. This is thanks to their beam splitter technology which ensures the two screens don’t flicker even with continuous use throughout the day.
The PluraView 3D stereo monitor series, ideal for photogrammetry, GIS/mapping, 3D LiDAR, oil & gas prospecting, archaeology or BIM & 3D city model visualization is compatible with leading stereo software applications from leading brands such as Esri, Trimble, Hexagon, Agisoft DAT/EM Terrasolid and many more. With its plug & play concept and high performance components combined with reliable beam splitter technology it makes it the ideal solution for professional stereo work.
Geospatial professionals rely on Schneider Digital’s 3D PluraView monitors for their stereoscopic visualizations in a variety of application areas. Their high display quality and wide viewing angle of about 170 degrees ensure users can comfortably view all projects, even when working together as part of a team.
This is possible since the dual-screen 3D PluraView monitors are directly compatible with all stereoscopic software applications, so no special graphic drivers or middleware need to be installed. The stereoscopic images are viewed on the upper monitor through lightweight passive and cross-polarized glasses which are electronically mirrored.
Display quality is unmatched with 10-bit color depth, 4K resolution per eye and exceptional display brightness – even under office daylight conditions! Furthermore, all electronic components have been certified low electromagnetic emissions so they can be zoned according to NATO SDIP-27 standard for comfortable VR work.
High Brightness & Contrast
Monitors that are too bright can make it difficult for your eyes to focus on the images, leading to strain from squinting. Therefore, having the proper brightness and contrast settings on your monitor is essential for optimal visual comfort.
A good contrast ratio can make dark and black shades appear more intense and realistic, while light shades appear crisper. Nonetheless, it’s essential to remember that a higher contrast ratio doesn’t guarantee you the highest possible picture quality.
To achieve ideal contrast on your monitor, you’ll first need to adjust it manually or using your PC software’s settings. Alternatively, you can have your display professionally calibrated.
In addition to contrast adjustment, you can also dim your screen’s brightness with a slider onscreen or by changing settings within PC software’s preferences.
Though not an exact science, the way in which you set your monitor’s brightness and contrast can significantly enhance your viewing experience. Experiment with these settings until you find one combination that feels comfortable for your eyes while producing good-looking visuals in general.
The contrast ratio of your monitor is a measurement of how well it can display black and white. A high contrast ratio means that scenes that should appear depressing or black will look more realistic and less washed out.
You can assess your monitor’s optimal contrast by testing it in various lighting conditions. Doing this helps identify if the contrast is too low or high, which could cause eye strain and poor performance.
Latency-free operation is key when monitoring audio signals. This is especially advantageous in applications where real time is essential, such as audio for live broadcast or speech recognition.
To achieve optimal sound quality, a monitor with zero latency is ideal. Preferably one that displays all signal inputs or multiple audio channels simultaneously; this is especially essential in the voice mastering industry where mixing several vocalists on one track with different pitches and volumes is commonplace.
Thankfully, plura monitors are designed with durability in mind and offer a host of features designed to make your job easier. They can be configured for any application and connected via USB, Displayport or HDMI to your computer with ease.
These professional video software solutions are compatible with a wide range of professional video software, such as high-end broadcast solutions from Avid and Nuendo. For instance, the Avid Media Composer Lite features an inbuilt display capable of rendering 4K resolution in perfect 3D stereo through its 3D PluraView 3G model – the largest stereoscopic monitor in its family at 28 inches with an impressive pixel count of 3.840 x 2.160 pixels. Plus it has a plug and play design and works together seamlessly with ImageStation(r) suite of tools.
Easy to Install
Professional monitors from plura are renowned for providing top-notch displays that are simple to install and maintain. Compatible with various control systems, these displays boast features like LKFS audio loudness, IP connectivity, as well as an impressive 35,000 hours of screen life.
Plura monitors are lightweight and portable with the Porta Brace portable case designed specifically for field use. This carrying case features a fold-out anti-glare visor to enhance visibility outdoors, as well as an ultraslick rain cover to safeguard the monitor, battery, and cables in case of inclement weather.
Plura offers a selection of accessories to make life even simpler for you, complementing the monitors in your system. These include a portable stand that can be adjusted at any angle for optimal viewing, as well as an adjustable back leg which locks into place when not in use to secure the monitor securely.
Furthermore, all plura monitors can be calibrated using ColourSpace software via the hardware options menu.
Once calibration is complete, users can save the profile results into a library. This makes re-calibrating your monitor easier without needing to upload Unity Bypass data again.
Plura monitors come equipped with a standard calibration feature that enables adjustments to gamma, color temperature and white luminescence level to meet broadcast standards. They also have PIP capability, dynamic or static UMP/tally, HDMI/component inputs as well as Ethernet-capable networkability with other Plura monitors – helping reduce overall costs while improving production quality.
