How it works ...

The Thomson Near Chart system is an App which runs on any PC running Windows 10 or later.  The App establishes a two way link with any tablet or smartphone via the Thomson Remote Test Cloud server. The tablet or smartphone is linked to the App using a QR code or a link sent by the App.

The App interrogates the tablet or smartphone to establish its resolution and then performs a simple calibration to establish the screen size.

The App then generates bespoke calibrated images which are sent via yje Thomson Remote Test Cloud server which are displayed almost instantly on the device.  This means that the tests and images are correctly scaled irrespective of the size or resolution of the device.
