Boeing shows upgraded training system

ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Boeing is demonstrating an upgraded pilot training system, which features higher resolution of high-definition images.

The Constant Resolution Visual System, being shown this week at the 2012 Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference in Florida, incorporates JVC's e-Shift 8K projection technology, which results in visual acuity closer to 20/20 while keeping the system's projector small and affordable.

Boeing said the system "nearly doubles a projector's resolution horizontally and vertically, approaching 8K performance from a 4K device."

"CRVS previously provided the highest-resolution, lowest-cost solution on the market," said Barry Kuhlmann, Visual Systems engineering manager at Boeing. "Now, with JVC e-Shift 8K projectors, CRVS has taken another leap forward in visual performance and fidelity to better prepare military pilots by allowing them to train in a more realistic yet safe environment."

Boeing said the CRVS provides constant target visibility throughout the entire field of vision. It is compatible with a wide range of fast jet and rotary-wing cockpits and existing CRVS customers can upgrade to JVC e-Shift 8K without modifying screens or structure.
