SimPIT Black Projection Surface
Projection Mounts & Holders
Lasercut Frame with Adjustable Screen Height
The Standard frame
All parts from construction board are CNC laser cut for the best precision and best weight vs strength efficiency.
Plain Construction Board
This frame is best for budget conscious projects and perfect for home gaming. The plain construction board frame is CNC laser cut from furniture grade construction board, it has hard surface finish but the surface is not sealed and and can be painted.
The Black frame is CNC laser cut from furniture grade construction board and the surface is laminated from both sides with mate black veneer with excellent scratch resistance
It offers nice finished look that compliments most gaming setups and better durability.
The PRO frame
AVENGER PRO (202º FOV) The main structure is from Aluminium tubing and Laser cut laminated construction board for the best stability and strength. The projector mounting system has max loading weight of 40kgs (more than enough for the 2 projectors required) and the geometry can accommodate very wide range of short throw projectors including the new 4K gaming low cost projectors for the insane full 8K gaming experience.
The frame is built for tough commercial environments such as trade-shows, airshows and training facilities. The frame is from black powder-coated aluminium profiles with black laminated construction board connectors.
At the moment only the state of the art simulation software supports full 270º view. The software has to support simultaneous rendering of 3 views. The compatible software is:
DCS World, Flaming Cliffs 2, LM Prepar3d, Flight Simulator X, Xplane 10, A10C Warthog,
Assetto Corsa, rFactor2
Please check the software compatibility before purchase
The Screen is the main and most valuable component of the system. It's made from 0.8mm thick polycarbonate - the same material that is commonly used for fighter plane cockpits and racing car windows.
The screen combines superior impact resistance, flexibility, structural strength and it's virtually unbreakable, while its weigh is less than half of the weight of glass. The surface is perfectly even with no wrinkles and it requires absolutely no tension when mounted.
Because projectors cannot project black the screen has a special surface layer that filters out ambient light while reflecting the image created by projectors making images very crisp and popping out of the screen.
What else is included & OPTIONAL EXTRAS
Icarus 180 Avenger requires 2x short throw 1080p projectors for the full 180º field of view. The Recommended projectors are Acer Z650 Predator, Acer H6517ST, BenQ 1080ST, BenQ 1085ST+, Optoma GT1080 or projectors with similar specifications.
As standard the included projectors are Acer Z650 Predators.
Warping and Blending Software(i.e. SimPitWarp)
Warping and blending software is needed to map the projected images to the screen and blend the 2 pictures to one seamless high resolution image. We provide precalibrated profiles and image enhancing patterns for the Icarus to ease installation.
Self Leveling Cross Laser
Very inexpensive tool available from hardware stores or ebay/amazon that makes life easier when calibrating the image.
