ImaGen Visual Server

Concurrent’s ImaGen visual server family offers the most flexible, multi-channel graphics solutions available today.

ImaGen™ is the ideal platform for demanding simulation applications such as flight and driving trainers. With ImaGen, developers can quickly and easy integrate the latest graphics technology into their training systems.

An ImaGen real-time COTS IG can be custom-configured to address a broad range of price/performance requirements – from single-channel systems to large, multi-channel Gen-locked IG platforms.  ImaGen systems feature the latest Quadro and GeForce graphics cards from NVIDIA.

ImaGen runs Concurrent’s RedHawk Linux real-time operating system. RedHawk delivers the jitter-free, deterministic rendering performance you need in high-fidelity trainers.

Support for Industry Standard Rendering Software

ImaGen supports a wide range of 3D visualization software, such as Diamond Visionics GenesisIG, Presagis Vega Prime, OpenSceneGraph, OpenGL and OpenGL Performer. ImaGen solutions running GenesisIG are specially designed and fully optimized for multi-channel applications.

Flexible Multi-Channel Rendering

Any number of ImaGen visual servers can be linked together to produce a single, unified output image to any desired level of photorealism. The power of individual ImaGen servers can be assigned to render specific subsets of an image in parallel. ImaGen supports a variety of image combining modes such as sample division for anti-aliasing, time division, image division, eye division and volume division for large rendering applications.

Commercial and military flight, maritime and driving simulators require multiple displays to provide photorealistic views of an environment as seen from a cockpit, window or control panel. ImaGen genlock functionality enables synchronization with standard video signal formats or house-sync signals providing a powerful solution for display, video briefing and compositing.
