GSE Systems Introduces 3Di-TouchWall, Affordable Alternative to CAVE
Simulation for Immersive 3D Training
SYKESVILLE, Md. -- January 28, 2013
GSE Systems, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GVP) today launched its 3Di-TouchWall™, an
integrated software/hardware solution that provides a highly immersive
simulation experience similar to a cave automatic virtual environment (CAVE)
at a fraction of the cost.
The 3Di-TouchWall produces a 3D-enabled 87-inch HD projected image. In
combination with the system’s infrared head-motion tracking, stereo sound and
DLP^® stereoscopic 3D glasses, users can interact with virtual equipment
(e.g., pumps, valves, gauges) and freely navigate through large virtual
environments such as power plants. The infrared motion tracking assures that
the user’s point of view exactly matches their position in real-time. The
resulting parallax increases the realism beyond what stereoscopic 3D glasses
alone can provide.
The 3Di-TouchWall uses the ActivBoard^® 587 multi-user surface manufactured by
Promethean World PLC that allows users to operate hands-free, without holding
a controller or other input device.
At the heart of the unit is GSE’s Activ3Di™ system, connecting GSE’s
first-principles-based simulator data to the virtual training environments. It
allows real-world physics data to drive the virtual scene in real time for an
unparalleled level of realism and immersion. Activ3Di meets ANS 3.5 standards.
It brings the value of simulator-based Control Room Operator Training into the
engineering space for a wide range of activities such as job performance
measures, plant walkthroughs, pre-job briefs and task-based training.
“The application of true-to-life virtual environments connected to our high
fidelity models is a strategic initiative of our company,” said Jim Eberle,
Chief Executive Officer of GSE Systems. “The 3Di-TouchWall is just one example
where we have listened to the training challenges of our customers in the
energy and processing industries and provided a product to enable them to
train faster, learn more and spend less.”
GSE will be demonstrating the 3Di-TouchWall™ system at two upcoming events:
Powerplant Simulation Conference (PowerplantSim'13)
Renaissance Tampa International Plaza Hotel
Jan. 28to Feb. 1
Conference on Nuclear Training and Education (CONTE 2013)
Hyatt Regency Jacksonville-Riverfront
Feb. 3 to 6
