DENVER – Mersive, a leading provider of visual computing software that creates and manages high performance displays, today announced general availability of Sol GPU, the newest version of the company’s flagship Sol product. Designed for displays running a Windows 7, multi-head GPU graphics solution, Sol GPU provides a software-only option in which no external warp/blend hardware is needed resulting in dramatically reduced cost and improved ease of use.
Since it was first released in 2006, Mersive’s Sol has brought unprecedented simplicity and affordability to large-scale, beyond-HD displays. Mersive sells several varieties of Sol software to meet the needs of a range of customer environments. Sol GPU is aimed at general purpose users who are looking for the performance of professional A/V solutions for conference rooms and other applications requiring both size and resolution but were unwilling to commit the expense and specialized expertise traditionally associated with this level of performance.
Similar to previous versions of Mersive software, Sol GPU uses a digital camera to measure geometry and brightness intensity of a multi-projector display. The software then computes an alignment solution that will produce a seamless image from multiple displays. Sol installations offer a significantly lower total cost of ownership in two key ways. First, Sol is designed to use low-cost commodity projectors to achieve the same or better image quality achieved only by high-end expensive projectors in the past. Second, Sol also provides fast and simple re-calibration, which lowers maintenance and support costs.
“Sol GPU is a significant milestone on our path to democratize the pixel landscape,” said Christopher Jaynes, Mersive founder and chief technology officer. “Having an ultra-high resolution display is no longer limited to only the elite customers who can afford a very expensive solution. Now, an even broader audience can leverage multiple commodity projectors to create an exceptional conference room or next generation desktop display.”
Mersive is a leading provider of visual computing software that creates and manages high performance displays. By transforming a hardware challenge into a software solution, Mersive brings unprecedented simplicity and affordability to large-scale, beyond-HD displays, allowing visual collaboration to go mainstream. Mersive software automatically aligns multiple commodity projectors into one seamless image of extraordinary quality and resolution without the expense of specialized hardware and services. Knowledge workers such as engineers, designers, scientists, and control room operators can now view their visualization applications on large, high-resolution displays for daily team interaction. Mersive is based in Denver, Colorado. For more information, visit www.mersive.com
