Infinite Z today launched zSpace, a new 3D holographic visualization product. zSpace provides a highly realistic 3D visualization experience that enables designers and engineers to work with product designs in a way not previously possible in a traditional 2D computing environment.
Using a proprietary stereoscopic display, trackable eyewear, a new type of direct interaction stylus and an innovative software platform, objects in zSpace appear "solid" in open space, with full color and high resolution, and can be directly manipulated as if they were real physical objects. This capability gives users a natural way to navigate, grab, slice, carve, zoom and explore models as never before possible.
Initially focused towards the digital/product design, scientific, medical, GIS/geospatial and government markets, zSpace is a completely new model for experiencing and communicating design ideas and significantly advancing the way people solve problems, learn, teach and communicate in today's world.
"zSpace is the wave of the future for product design and development," said Paul Kellenberger, CEO of Infinite Z. "Our immersive zSpace experience enables users to interact with 3D applications just as naturally and intuitively as they would with real physical objects, which has never been possible before in the virtual computing space. zSpace has the potential to dramatically enhance and improve user workflows, saving companies time and money, and enabling designers and engineers to represent their ideas more effectively and realistically than possible with today's 2D displays."
zSpace replaces indirect access of 2D rendered 3D objects with direct control of stereo 3D rendered objects, providing increased productivity for those proficient in Maya 2011 and Showcase Professional 2012 and accelerated learning and utilization of products for less experienced users. Beta versions of zSpace plug-ins are available today for Autodesk Maya 2011 and Showcase Professional 2012, as well as a proof-of-concept zSpace demo for Autodesk Alias Design software.
