HoloStage helps research institute to conduct visual experiments


The National Institute for Land and Infrastructure Management (NILIM), a research institute affiliated to Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) has adopted the Christie HoloStage visualisation solution. The system was supplied by Ushio Lighting and constructed by Forum8, 3D and virtual reality (VR) specialist, which acted as the main contractor for the project.

NLIM was seeking a 3D projection system that negated the need for large-scale field experiments. The solution needed to work seamlessly with smart software in adapting to various BIM and CIM models to create realistic drive simulations as well as unmanned construction experiments in a virtual space. The system also needed to output video signals without any degradation in image quality.

Christie’s stereoscopic 4K VR system supports the visualisation of Construction Information Modelling Management (CIM) models for MLIT’s digital transformation initiative in the infrastructure field. The HoloStage, installed at NILIM’s Asahi office, is comprised of four Mirage 304K projectors displaying visuals on four surfaces, with each visual measuring 4.4m wide and 2.3m high. Stereoscopic images are achieved with Forum8’s 3D real-time simulation software “UC-win/Road”, which provides immersion with a wide viewing angle and motion tracking, when viewed with 3D glasses.

With the HoloStage solution, NILIAM can conduct experiments related to the design, construction and maintenance of public infrastructure, made possible by being able to visualise CIM models stereoscopically, such as structures and road traffic. The research institute can embark on technological development and verification in a highly realistic virtual environment.

Akikazu Dempoya, executive director, Enterprise Japan, Christie, commented: “We are delighted that NILIM has adopted the Christie HoloStage solution, a spatially-integrated immersive environment that promotes collaborative learning and teamwork. Equipped with stunning 4K resolution, stereoscopic 3D images, motion tracking and interactive capabilities, the Christie HoloStage delivers powerful performance, image quality, resolution and reliability that our customers can count on for advanced visualisation applications.”
