The Peoria, Arizona, U.S.-based Challenger Space Center has recently integrated a Syntax-Brillian 720p liquid-crystal-on-silicon (LCoS(TM)) HDTV into its 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.

"In both of the applications, the quality and clarity of the images on the Syntax-Brillian HDTV really enhance the learning experience," said Dr. Robert Myers, executive director, Challenger Space Center. "In any situation that relies on hypothetical scenarios, the more vivid and real the material, the more engaged and informed the participants."

According to Myers, the center also plans to use the Syntax-Brillian HDTV to showcase NASA feeds during real space flights and events.

"We're delighted to see our high-end HDTVs put to such good use at the Challenger Space Center," said Rainer Kuhn, vice president of sales and product marketing at Syntax-Brillian. "Our 720p and 1080p LCoS(TM) HDTVs are ideal for high-end home theater environments as well as for a range of commercial and educational applications that make the most of our platforms' high-contrast, 170-degree viewing angle, ultra-precise gray level performance and exceptional black-level delivery."
