EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider, today announced newly opened Virtual Reality Center for development of virtual reality at the COMONExT Science and Technology Park in Lomazzo (Como) in Italy. The main purpose of the center is to allow companies to view and interact instantly with something that is not there physically but that appears in three dimensions thanks to Virtual Reality.
The Grand Opening Ceremony of formerly Centro Sviluppo Realtà Virtuale (CSRV) – IDC Italy took place on July 11th, starting with the Opening Speech from Paolo De Santis, President of the Chamber of Commerce of Como and Giorgio Carcano, President of CSRV and ComoNExT, followed by two presentations from Stefano Varisco, Simulation Engineer at Ferrari, and Antonio Franchin, Sales Director at PompeCucchi.
“CSRV-IDC Italy is a startup company which can lean on a very skilled technical team and on the strength of a partner like EON Reality, solid player in the Virtual Reality market since 1999; we are going to provide for renting our Virtual Reality devices and infrastructure to guarantee a very cost-efficient approach to these technologies: Virtual Reality and its benefits will become a technology available for all companies and organizations, regardless of their size,” said Carlo Chiodaroli, General Manager at CSRV – IDC Italy.
CSRV – IDC Italy has been financed by the local Chamber of Commerce and some banking groups. Its mission is to offer Virtual Reality development services in the fields of applications ranging from architecture to aerospace, oil & gas to education, automotive to medical, government to luxury goods. On top of the EON software development platform, CSRV – IDC Italy is equipped with several large-size immersive display systems, including a 3m x 2m curved holographic screen with stereoscopic projection system, a 9m wide EON Concave screen with 2 full HD 3D projectors that enables high-quality immersion for large audience and an EON Icube system which is a cubic room about 3x3m, with three walls and one floor. On top of the stereoscopic effect, the immersion feeling is increased by tracking cameras that are following the user’s movement to adapt the virtual environment in real-time.
“CSRV – IDC Italy is a very promising combination of high-end 3D technologies and highly skilled human resources, within the very dynamic Northern Italy. We really look forward to ramping up the Center and establishing it as a leading organization for Virtual Reality services both in Italy and in Europe,” said Pierre-Julien Barraud, Business Development Director Europe at EON Reality Inc.
