Cambridge, MA, June 1, 2010 -- Scalable Display Technologies, a leading provider of software for multi-projector display systems, today announced the immediate availability of ScalableDesktop™, an innovative software application that automatically blends and warps arrays of projectors to display seamless Windows® 7 or Vista desktops.
Based on Scalable Display's patented camera feedback technology, ScalableDesktop is able to edge blend and warp arrays of up to six projectors to enable almost any standard Windows desktop application to be viewed as an ultra-high resolution display, without requiring external hardware. Ideal for a wide range of applications, including conference rooms, lecture halls, touch walls, wide-screen gaming, commercial and military simulation environments, ScalableDesktop empowers end users to create an ultra-high resolution display of their desktops that is perfectly edge-blended and color corrected.
"High-definition displays are lagging when it comes to the ability of today's computers and graphics cards to generate pixels," said Andrew Jamison, CEO of Scalable Display Technologies.  "Users are seeking creative alternatives to achieving ultra-high resolution displays for a wide range of applications. Our beta customers have quickly embraced ScalableDesktop as a unique and effective tool for overcoming the limitations of today's HD displays."
ScalableDesktop includes the following key features:

  • Scaleable_Technologies_desktop.jpgSoftware operates on any Windows 7 or Vista PC - no expensive video wall controller needed
  • Quick to set-up and easy to use - no technician required
  • Ultra-high resolution display - scalable to six projectors for large, high-resolution displays
  • Automatic geometric alignment - adapts to flat and cylindrical screens
  • Automatic edge-blending - no bright regions where projectors overlap
  • Flexible configuration - using a DVI capture card users can feed two HD inputs (e.g. video conferencing codec, DVD player, DVR) onto the desktop in a separate window.
As a software-only solution that includes Scalable Display's flagship EasyBlend multi-projector calibration software, ScalableDesktop makes it easy for users to build a complete system using just a mid- to high-level PC, a graphics card, such as the ATI Eyefinity-powered GPU, Canon Rebel T1i or Logitech Webcam 9000 Pro, and two to six projectors, depending on the desired configuration.
"Our experience with Scalable Display and its auto-calibration solutions has always been topnotch, so we had high expectations when we heard about its new desktop warping technology," said Bill Othick, CEO of BOI Solutions. "As a company focused on media collaboration for key Fortune 50 companies, we look for simple, high-impact solutions that improve how our customers analyze and interact with various software applications. ScalableDesktop delivers in offering the easy setup and excellent display quality that our customers look for, especially when it comes to recalibrating products like our portable visualization walls on demand."
"Touch walls are becoming more and more mainstream as the need for collaboration and interaction with data among multiple users grows," said Mark Miller, managing partner of Miller & Associates. "Using ScalableDesktop, we're able to create even larger, multi-projector displays for the office, conference rooms and public access touch walls, where the entire resolution is self-maintaining."

ScalableDesktop is available immediately from Scalable Display and through its worldwide distributor network. For additional information, please visit or or call 1-617-864-9300.
Scalable Display will also be featuring live demonstrations of ScalableDesktop at next week's InfoComm exhibition taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada June 9 through June 11, 2010. Attending media interested in viewing a demonstration should contact Bree Clidence or Jordan DeVita at 401-490-9700.
