Abstract
Diamond Visionics proposes a solution to decouple rendering channels from simulators and displays by developing a novel architecture consisting of both hardware and software. Modern video processing and networking techniques will be utilized such that any display in the system can be connected to any image generator in the system during runtime. This type of separation will allow for specific image generator tasks to be offloaded from specific rendering channels as desired to create higher fidelity simulations. Source data necessary for the image generators will not be limited to just the image generator computer, but rather a centralized location. These steps above will make it possible to reconfigure any image generator channel to any display very quickly during runtime if there should be a hardware failure. In an era where simulators are used more than ever, tremendous cost savings can be realized by virtually eliminating simulator downtime due to image generator failures.
