What is SimPit 270 Centurion:

The SimPit 270 Centurion is designed for simulation enthusiasts that enjoy higher level of fidelity and feel as close to real life as possible. The system can be reconfigured for flight as well as driving simulation and set up as dedicated system.

This SimPit offers 270 degrees of simultaneous view and works even with stereoscopic 3D and head tracking (aka VR) which is great if you want to mix virtual environment with real hardware. (*additional equipment required)

For dedicated setups the SimPit 270 Centurion provides the best fidelity and situational awareness, awesome immersion, unrestricted field of view and freedom.


* Not suitable for commercial use

The Screen

The 180 inch 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 required

Projectors
SimPit 270 Centurion requires 3x short throw 1080p projectors for the full 270º field of view but it can be also used with only 2 projectors for 180º field of view. (projectors are not part of the package). the Recommended projectors are Acer Z650 Predator, Acer H6517ST, BenQ 1080ST, BenQ 1085ST+, Optoma GT1080, Vivitek DH559ST or projectors with similar specifications.

Warping and Blending Software(i.e. SimPitWarp)
Warping and blending software is needed to map the projected images to the screen and blend the 3 pictures to one seamless high resolution image. SimPit Warp is highly recommended as we can providing precalibrated profiles and image enhancing patterns for the Centurion

Self Leveling Cross Laser
Very inexpensive tool available from hardware stores or ebay/amazon that makes life easier when calibrating the image.

Software requirements

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:
Flight simulation
DCS World, Flaming Cliffs 2, LM Prepar3d, Flight Simulator X, Xplane 10, A10C Warthog, Driving Simulation
Assetto Corsa, rFactor2

Please check the software compatibility before purchase
