CONTOUR 3D Geo / GIS display

CLEAR – EASY – COMFORTABLE – COLLABORATIVE

NEW innovative stereoscopic full high definition display – the glasses-free 3D FHD stereoscopic display in the geospatial imaging and related photogrammetry sectors.

CONTOUR next generation display technology delivers a unique high quality combination of image clarity, brightness, consistency, ease of use and operator comfort.

CONTOUR’S 3D full high definition (3D FHD) image is presented onto a precision mirror, which delivers crisp stereo imagery. Simply set up and go. CONTOUR delivers 4 million pixels, with exceptional clarity, depth perception, brightness and contrast, to ensure your image is pin sharp across the entire field of view, from the moment you switch on.

DESIGNED FOR YOU

Designed with the needs of GIS Professionals in mind, CONTOUR delivers bright, consistent, stereoscopic HD images in an easy-to-use, comfortable system.

GIS professionals work intensively and for long periods.

Intensive GIS analysis can be stressful on the body and the eyes. At the same time, GIS professionals must be able to interpret images from many sources of varying quality. Using new, patented digital technology, CONTOUR optimises image quality, depth and ergonomics.

EASY TO USE

No in-use maintenance or adjustment is necessary as the 3D FHD image is presented without any need for screen re-alignment during operation. CONTOUR requires minimal setup, so little training is required and full user benefits are achieved quickly.

Unique, globally patented, TriTeQ3 technology ensures the image is always delivered precisely, consistently and accurately, with no flickering, ghosting or cross-talk; latency is gone. Bright, consistent, glasses-free 3D FHD clarity is the new normal.

The high resolution stereo images can be communicated to other CONTOUR workstations, in real time, within sites or across multiple locations, nationally and internationally.

CONTOUR can communicate high resolution stereo images to third party colleagues and specialist analysts across multiple locations,nationally and internationally, in real time.

ERGONOMICS IS IMPORTANT

Designed-in ‘user-centric’ ergonomics deliver a comfortable working position. Peripheral vision and ambient awareness is preserved, making adjacent 2D screen mapping possible with reduced eye fatigue.

The display image is delivered at an ergonomically optimised angle to support good posture, maximising operator comfort while reducing back and neck strain.

FAQs

What is the resolution of Contour?

CONTOUR is a unique display system which cannot be categorised in the same way as a monitor. The image of Contour is made up of two full HD channels optically combined on the mirror, thus doubling the line resolution viewed by the user. We refer to the resolution as “full stereo HD”.

How does the system differ from “3D” monitors already on the market?

CONTOUR uses a unique, glasses-free, technology that delivers two high resolution channels to the left and right eye giving crisp imagery with a natural perception of depth.

Do I need training before using CONTOUR?

No. CONTOUR intuitive controls makes it easy to use from the start. A comprehensive user manual is provide with the system.

Does it take long to install?

No, just 10 minutes to assemble.

Can it indicate the height of subjects viewed?

Yes, through the manual image alignment.
