Cobra, The Elumenati and Canon U.S.A. Collaboration Launches New Mirror Based Dome Display at Infocomm 2016

on Wednesday, 08 June 2016. Posted in June 2016

Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will showcase its award-winning line of high-resolution projectors, along with entertaining and innovative partner solutions in booth #C7233 at InfoComm 2016, June 8-10 at the Las Vegas Convention Centre.


A featured solution on the booth is what will be marketed in the United States as the 4K GeoDome®Panorama: An interactive exploration of data-based simulations and 360-degree media, The GeoDome® Panorama by The Elumenati will utilize the Canon REALiS 4K500ST projector’s 4K imagery and Marginal Focus feature to help ensure that the content projected is breath-taking, and virtually always in focus across the immersive environment. Step into the Panorama and experience virtual reality without the headset.

This new dome display solution offers users up to a 180° horizontal field of view with +50°/ -30° vertical field of view. It measures a diameter of 4.2 metres and in a world’s first combines the latest innovations from the three companies. The component configuration supersizes Cobra’s 1.8m panorama and extends its field of view. With Canons unique marginal focus feature built into to its latest native 4K projector you get the benefits of field curvature matching, focused image without colour aberration. The solution uses a Cobra Simulation next generation first surface mirror to reflect crisp 4K content onto the Elumenati GeoDome® portable display.

Alexander Bradley Managing Director at Cobra Simulation said “It’s great to be in Las Vegas at Infocomm working alongside Canon and The Elumenati. Once again Cobra & its partners lead the market with an innovative combination of products to deliver a much needed solution. The new dome is ideal for simulation training where large cockpits are needed and is perfect for museum or show floor exhibits. Using single channel solutions with the latest high resolution projectors are much more cost effective way to deliver immersive content. They drastically reduce the hardware and processing power associated with multi-channel installs. With a single channel configuration, it is safer, easier and quicker to install thus it saves clients’ money. What is not to like!”

D’nardo Colucci President of the Elumenati said “The solution produces a beautiful image with no colour aberration and offers users a fully focused image that’s up to 180° field of view with a single channel mirrored product, this has not been done before to such a high standard. We have enjoyed great partnerships with both Canon and Cobra Simulation, we are excited to be on the show floor together showcasing our latest innovations.”
