Quantum3D has released its next generation Independence IDX 90 image generator. Powered by Quantum3D’s MANTIS software, it provides for small and medium complexity visual systems with up to 8 channels.

While IDX 90 is small in terms of footprint and budget, it shares many key features with its larger sibling, the IDX 9000 model, but is design-optimized for applications which require four or fewer total GPUs. It can drive up to four full-performance display channels, or up to eight displays when running its GPUs in a dual-output mode. IDX 90 offers a choice of “Turing” series GPUs, combined with an Intel Xeon-based server platform.

Unlike other IGs, which require a 4-foot or taller rack and three or four separate PCs just to drive a three channel display, the IDX 90 comes packaged in a compact 4U-high case containing the entire IG system. IDX 90 can either be mounted in a standard 19-inch rack with room left for other customer equipment or can stand alone in a PC deskside configuration.

IDX 90 can be used for many simulation applications, including: fixed-wing aviation (up to Level D), weapons and gunnery systems, hardware-in-the-loop sensor simulation, maritime and ship’s bridge, automotive research, development and driving simulators, ground vehicles, fixed base and forward air traffic control, mono & stereo scientific visualization and virtual reality.
