Tempe, Ariz. — Advanced television supplier Syntax-Brillian announced that Peoria, Ariz.-based Challenger Space Center recently integrated a Syntax-Brillian 720p LCoS HDTV into its innovative 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.

The center will also use the TV to show NASA feeds during real space flights and events.
