Israel-based Revolver animation and game technologies, has secured more than $2 million from Maayan Ventures and from private investors. Revolver will use the investment to expand its research and development activities as well as its global marketing initiatives. Arie Scope, former CEO of Microsoft Israel currently serves as Revolver's Chairman of the Board.
Revolver is best known for its OL3D technology which enables real-time 3D content on any 2D environment without requiring the installation of extra 3D hardware and/or software. OL3D uses data manipulation algorithms on the polygonal data of 3D models, which enables real-time rendering of 3D content in 2D computer graphic environments such as Adobe Flash, Adobe Air, Microsoft Silverlight, Symbian, Java and other 2D environments. Revolver's solution allows developers the rapid creation of real-time interactive 3D-based content such as games and animations on 2D environments, and solves familiar problems such as, CPU efficiency, large file sizes, long development cycles, restricted content and applications or third party development platforms. This makes OL3D simple to implement cross platform and relevant for commercial use.
Revolver recently launched FreeSpin3D-the first commercial solution enabling the import of 3D models and development of real-time 3D graphics in Adobe Flash. FreeSpin's solution allows game developers, advertisers and content developers viable, user friendly software that opens the opportunities for new creative streams in 3D and 2.5D content. FreeSpin3D is aimed at and developed for both Flash designers, and Flash programmers.
