Peoria, AZ-based Challenger Space Center recently integrated a Syntax-Brillian 720p liquid-crystal-on-silicon (LCoS) HDTV into its innovative space exploration and science learning center.
The HDTV monitor is currently being used as a showcase for interactive learning sessions designed for both students and corporate team building events. Participants come to the center and form emergency response teams, with the mission of managing a natural disaster scenario that is showcased on the Syntax-Brillian HDTV.
The monitor is also used to display the Jet Propulsion Lab's Celestia software, a real-time 3-D space simulation program featuring more than 100,000 stars, as well as galaxies, planets, moons, asteroids, comets and spacecraft. The Celestia software is part of the center's astro-biology curriculum.
