Beautiful scenes, flexible configuration and informative content VR-Vantage is a configurable toolkit with a core desktop image generator for out-the-window scenes, camera views, and sensor channels.

With built-in distributed rendering architecture, VR-Vantage supports many different display configurations — from simple desktop deployments to multichannel displays for virtual cockpits, to monitor based training systems, to VR head mounted displays, like Oculus Rift.

VR-Vantage can also display simulations in multiple windows, with multiple channels, even on remote computers. Giving users the flexibility to create configurations such as wrap-around views for a cockpit simulation, multiple monitor wall displays (e.g. security camera displays), or multi-channel displays on large screens.

Using the most modern image rendering and shading techniques, VR-Vantage takes advantage of the increasing power of NVIDIA graphics cards, creating visual effects to rival any modern IG or game engine.

The VR-Vantage product line consists of the VR-Vantage Toolkit and the following applications that are built with it:

  • VR-Vantage IG - the core configurable desktop Image Generator for out-the-window scenes, camera views, and sensor channels.
  • VR-Vantage Stealth - the information station where users view the virtual world in 2D and 3D. Whether they need it for situational awareness, simulation debugging, or after action review, VR-Vantage Stealth provides the most data about a networked virtual world and presents it in a clear and accessible way. With VR-Vantage Stealth, users can quickly achieve a big picture understanding of a battlefield situation while retaining an immersive sense of perspective.
  • VR-Vantage PVD - a 2D solution for interacting with the virtual battlefield. This plan view display is the interface for providing situational awareness and managing entities in large areas, as well as keeping track of a single trainee’s location. Whether building a command centre or a cockpit trainer, VR-Vantage PVD presents a tactical view of the simulation environment using raster graphic maps or terrain database maps, operational and analytical graphics, and MILSPEC 2525b entity icons. Used stand-alone or integrated into training systems, VR-Vantage PVD is the high performance mapping solution.
  • The VR-Vantage Toolkit - an API that comes with all the software needed to completely rebuild visual applications like VR-Vantage Stealth and to customize and extend those applications to fit users unique requirements. The toolkit also gives users the power to embed any of VR-Vantage’s capabilities directly into their simulation applications. The VR-Vantage Toolkit is based on OpenSceneGraph, so users can leverage value-added plug-ins built by the OSG community and VT MÄK partners.
