Orchid® IX: Incredibly Accurate 3D Immersion

Overview

Orchid® IX: Immersive Experience

Imagine if there was a display environment that you could walk into with your colleagues and view an exact duplicate of your facility created digitally in 3D. So dimensionally and visually accurate that you and your colleagues believe you are there. No cumbersome headsets are required.

Not only do you have an exact visual replica right in front of you, you can superimpose your other digital assets concerning the design of the facility; schematics, P&IDs, tech manuals, operation and maintenance procedures, etc. right on your 3D facility. You and your team can discuss, plan, design and train as if you are there; no confusion, misunderstandings or surprises. A true virtual world with unlimited depth perception, accuracy down to 0.039” (1 mm) and real world audio to complete the immersive experience. Welcome to Orchid® IX!

3D Content

3D Content

Whether we convert data you already have (CAD files, 3D models, Building Information Modeling (BIM) content, etc.) or whether we efficiently develop the 3D world for you, you are sure to experience full 3D immersion in the virtual world like never before.

Reflected Reality

The Orchid® IX 3D world is fully interactive, complete with flyovers, walkthroughs, realistic access to confined spaces, high-risk or hazardous areas, dynamic links to plant engineering documents and even connection to your operator training simulator. With Reflected Reality, users can experience high-fidelity 3D content in a user-friendly, interactive and headset-free environment.

How Reflected Reality Works

Reflective Reality
  1. Projectors project image on curved projection screen around interior desk
  2. Curved mirrors reflect image on desk’s curved projection screen
  3. “Reflected Reality”: Superior 3D image with true depth perception achieved

Extended Reality (XR)

Extended Reality

Types of Extended Reality

Virtual Reality (VR): A digital environment replaces the user’s physical environment. VR completely immerses individuals in the digital world, typically with head-mounted displays.

Augmented Reality (AR): Digital content overlays a real-world environment. An example of AR includes Snapchat’s photo filters.

Mixed Reality (MR): MR is a blending of the real world with a digital world. Creates an environment in which technology and the physical world coexist and interact with each other. MR also requires headgear.

Reflected Reality (RR): Using curved mirrors and a curved projector screen, RR creates a virtual environment with an accurate sense of depth and three-dimensionality. We achieve this immersive experience in a headset-free environment. RR is unique to Orchid® IX.
