Indie Band GOLDEN Releases 3D Video On Their Website

January 26, 2008


3Dwalkthroughs.com just picked up a story on CNETnews.com about an Atlanta based indie rock band, GOLDEN, that is premiering a full-color stereoscopic 3D music video of their latest single.

You can download and watch the 3D video directly from their website but will need 3D glasses to experience the 3D effects. If you do not have 3D glasses, the band will actually send them to you if you provide your name and home address.

The video which showcases the bands new release, Shine, was produced by Atlanta-based Dzignlight Studios at a fraction of what it costs to create an MTV style 2D music video. The fact that producing 3D videos is becoming much more affordable will hopefully promote a more stable future for 3D videos and movies than in the past.

We have been reading about many different developing technologies that will soon eliminate the need for the 3D glasses altogether. Based on the rave reviews of U23D it seems like these movies are off to a promising start.

Icovia To Launch 3D Interactive Space Planner

January 25, 2008

Icovia, has announced that it will be launching a 3D version of their online room planner. The goal of this new product is to help retailers and manufacturers of new home furnishing products improve their online sales.

With Icovia 3D, shoppers will be able to “furnish” their homes with products from the manufacturer’s online catalog before actually making a purchase. In addition to increasing online sales, the Icovia 3D technology will make retail and manufacturers websites more sticky.

Once Icovia 3D is added to a retailer’s or manufacturer’s website, prospective
buyers can create rooms of various shapes and sizes, and then drop in
products from an online catalog. Users are further engaged by their ability
to customize these interiors with selected fabrics and finishes, room lighting, wall colors, and flooring. Icovia 3D ultimately gives the shopper the power to make intelligent buying decisions while simultaneously alerting the retailer or manufacturer to their most qualified prospective buyers.

3Dwalkthroughs.com is certainly curious to see the results of the end product. We have yet to come across an automated drag and drop product that allows mass customization while producing a 3D photo-realistic end result.


3D Virtual Trade Show Developer Gets $10 Million Dollars in Financing

January 24, 2008

Menlo Park based, Unisfair Inc., announced today they received $10 million in a second round of funding from Palo Alto-based Norwest Venture Partners and Sequoia Capital, which has an office in Menlo Park.

Unisfair, who specializes in created 3D trade shows said it will use the financing for new product development and sales and marketing.

Although 3Dwalkthroughs.com will be launching our own 3D virtual venue platform over the next couple of months, we still view this as exciting news.

The ability for Unisfair to successfully raise $10 million validates our belief that we are only experiencing a small preview of what is to come in terms of a 3D internet.

We believe that in the next few years 3D Trade Shows and other 3D Venues will become a major way that real business is accomplished. We also believe that as the momentum builds with a few early adopters, we will soon see an explosion in the use of this technology.

Processing speeds and bandwith still needs to be improved to be able to achieve the standards of today’s high end graphics but we are getting close.

We are very excited about our forray into the 3D virtual venue space and can’t wait to see how this new business model develops.


The New Standard In Home Theaters? 360 Degree 3D Cinema

January 23, 2008


3Dwalkthroughs.com just became aware of the world’s first 360 degree 3D cinema, debuting now at the University of New South Wales.

As part of the Sydney Festival, the university’s iCinema Centre for Interactive Cinema Research is showcasing its “T-Visionarium”, a virtual reality theatre that is 10metres wide and 4metres high.

Wearing 3D glasses, a Cinema goer steps into the cylindrical cinema, selects the video clips they want to watch using a computer program, and produce and direct where they want the story to go.

From the 30-metre-curved screen, the viewers experience being surrounded by hundreds of Australian television broadcast clips moving in three dimensions.

The T-Visionarium is not only being used as entertainment, but is also being used as an immersive 3D training tool. Four mining companies have already purchased the technology to train their workers on proper maintenance techniques, how to work machinery underground, as well as the obvious, emergency response protocol.

About TVisionarium Mk II
TVisionarium Mk II is “an immersive eye-popping stereo 3D interactive 360-degree experience where a user can search through a vast database of television shows and rearrange their shots in the virtual space that surrounds them.”

PDF3D – Integration of Interactive 3D Models into PDF Documents

January 22, 2008

UK based PDF3D has recently launched a publishing tool that allows for the integration of interactive 3D models into PDF documents. With PDF3D’s tool, users can rotate, zoom, select and explore 3D images in much greater detail than a flat 2D image.

The tool is being promoted to a wide range of industries including: Geology, Aerospace, Engineering, Architecture and Bioinfomatics.

The newest version of the free adobe reader makes viewing 3D objects and images a breeze.

3Dwalkthroughs.com posted about the possibilities of the new Adobe 3D products in the past. The ability to create PDF brochures with integrated, interactive 3D images is very valuable for our business.

Using this technology, property developers can create very effective brochures of their new development properties which include detailed 3D views of the unit exterior and interior. The ability to interact with the model allows the user to more thoroughly review all the properties details from all sides.

While we are a little behind schedule implementing this tool into our arsenal, it is definitely on our “to do” list for the second quarter of 2008.
