The TREALITY® TD-Series is a unique and innovative line of visual simulation products. This dome immersive system offers many benefits, including portability as the number one advantage. Easy to deliver and install because of its light structure, no external assistance is required for its deployment. This new product is designed to fit in an ISO container, making installation possible in any location.
The second benefit is related to the quality of simulation. It is as close to real operations as possible, with a 220º field of vision, coupled with a semi-rigid display technology that delivers optimal viewing. This mobile immersive system has multiple applications, including flight simulation (aircraft, helicopter, etc.; driving simulation (cars, trucks and public transport vehicles); ground warfare and military operations simulation; naval operations simulation; and mining operations simulation.
Immersion markets three models of the TREALITY® TD-Series line: the TD322, TD350 and TD522. Each product includes three to five video projectors. Main differences are related to resolution and vision field.
TREALITY® products include the world’s highest contrast and resolution, 360-degree rear projection display, a variety of large field of view collimated displays, and the first deployable display with a roll-up, seamless spherical screen. TREALITY® Simulation Visual Systems are used in flight, maritime, air traffic control, driving, ground warfare and firearms simulators as well as a variety of simulation visualization applications. TREALITY® displays are renowned for their image clarity of daytime scenes and high-quality, night-time and stimulated NVG scenes. User-friendly projector control and alignment systems make the display operation simple and easy.
