zSpace Unveils zView at SIGGRAPH 2013

zSpace unveils zView, a new webcam capture application for its interactive 3D platform, and will demonstrate it during SIGGRAPH 2013.

Sunnyvale, CA -- zSpace, Inc. unveiled a new webcam capture application for its interactive 3D platform, zSpace. The company will demonstrate this new feature during SIGGRAPH 2013, a conference at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA, on July 23-25 that brings together an international group of more than 20,000 computer graphics and interactive technology professionals.

zSpace offers individuals working in computer aided design (CAD), computer graphics and interactive technologies a unique experience where they can invent, innovate and collaborate in 3D. zView builds upon the zSpace platform's collaboration capabilities, allowing a larger audience to collectively capture and share their experience with zSpace. Users can also present their project or ideas in a more effective, dramatic fashion to fellow colleagues, customers, students and investors, particularly while at conferences, trade shows, classrooms and conventions. zView is especially valuable to internal and third party developers, such as Unity developers, as the technology allows for easier and broader knowledge-sharing within the development community and to their customers.

In Booth 116, the company will showcase its flagship product, zSpace, a highly realistic 3D visualization experience that enables users to work with product designs, animations and 3D simulations not previously possible in a traditional 2D computing environment. Attendees at SIGGRAPH can be among the first to see zView in action, recording their own 30-second video while their experience is projected in real-time on a large 42" display. With zView, non-zSpace users see an accurate representation of what the zSpace user is experiencing -- virtual-holographic images moving in three-dimensional space.

"Due to their 2D nature, traditional videos and presentations have proven ineffective in communicating the true value of zSpace's immersive 3D experience, as individual or group viewers are not directly engaged in the technology," said Paul Kellenberger, CEO of zSpace. "zView provides the ability to more quickly and efficiently present the zSpace platform to a much larger audience in an interactive, cost-effective and easily consumable format."

Doug Twilleager, CTO of Software, will present at the following SIGGRAPH sessions:

  • Monday, July 22: Exhibits Fast Forward - Ballroom AB, 3:45-5:15 pm
  • Tuesday, July 23: Exhibitor Tech Talk, "zSpace: A Revolutionary Way to Experience 3D Content" - Expo floor, 9:45-10:45 am
  • Thursday, July 25: "zSpace: An Integrated Immersive Stereoscopic 3D System" - NVIDIA Visual Computing Theater, Booth #803, 10:00 - 10:30 am

zSpace will also be demoing the following applications on its interactive 3D platform:

  • Cyber Science 3D by Cyber-Anatomy Corp.
  • AngryBots by Unity Technologies
  • Teamcenter by Siemens PLM Software
  • Maya by Autodesk
  • PyMOL - open-source molecular visualization system 
  • SketchUp by Trimble in TechViz
