If you or your children have ever been in a Chuck E. Cheese, Dave & Busters, or similar family entertainment arcade, then you’ve probably seen or experienced an attraction conceived of and brought to life by Triotech. In this rapidly evolving industry, where a mediabased simulator is considered successful if it’s among an arcade’s top 10 earners for even six months, Triotech is distinguished by rides such as the Canyon Coaster – a top 3 attraction at Chuck E. Cheese for over 10 years.
With a relentless focus on product development, Triotech has continued to build upon its successes with the latest-and-greatest in 4D (and beyond) rides and theaters. Combining state-of-the-art interactivity and 3D video, Triotech’s latest attraction, the XD Dark Ride, called for very specific projection requirements.
A compact system, the smaller screen size required a short throw lens with widescreen 16:9 or 16:10 native resolution. High brightness was a must to deliver stunning 3D visuals. And with 4 projectors operating simultaneously, it would be critical that the output be virtually identical. In other words, the parameters for success were very precise.
“We also needed all this with excellent pricing,” said Triotech Customer Service Director Ben Zabik. “With 4 projectors used at a time plus one spare per system, we needed competitive pricing to be able to keep our cost down for our customers.”
