EonVision, Inc, a joint venture between EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider, and Vision 3 Experiential (V3E), an entertainment industry frontrunner in multi-media content and technology, today announced the EonVision Idome (EVId). EVId is the first ‘Edutainment’ dome experience to combine Hollywood feature film quality, stunning Virtual Reality characters, 4D multi-sensory theater platform and full interactivity for every guest. Experience it at the EonVision Idome launch on November 19, 2013 at EON Reality in Irvine, CA.
EonVision Idome has been engineered to revolutionize the ‘Edutainment’ market by combining the best elements of movies, theme parks, museums and interactive gaming. EVId allows guests to explore our universe, the oceans, inside the human body — even prehistoric worlds in a new and provocative way. But more than just “observation,” guests are active participants in the adventure and help guide how it will go.
The Idome’s unique design results in total audience immersion. Personal interactivity devices and spectacular, “branched” story content ensure individual excitement, group collaboration and infinite show variations. High-definition stereoscopic 3D visuals and 3D sound married with 4D elements like motion seats and ambient effects (water, heat, wind) results in an addictive, adaptable and exhilarating learning adventure for all.
EonVision Idome has a tiered seating platform that accommodates 30 guests. It is semi-portable and can be re-deployed quickly and economically. EVId is perfect for malls, museums, science centers, theme parks and other high traffic areas.
“The market for ‘Edutainment’ is experiencing a rapid global growth. To meet these market demands, EonVision has developed a strategy with local partners to optimize the introduction of these state-of-the-art ‘Edutainment Showplaces’ in each key region,” said Mats W. Johansson, President of EON Reality. “This includes a turnkey solution delivering all hardware, software, content, installation, training, maintenance and support.”
V3E’s CEO, Pierre de Lespinois, said, “We’re very excited to launch our EonVision Idome! I believe this combination of VR technology, immersive interactivity and visual storytelling has never been seen quite like this before. This is how we SHOULD learn and how we WILL WANT to be entertained in the future.”
“EonVision Idome lets audiences navigate our oceans with whales, careen down canyons with extreme sports junkies or survive a black hole in deep space. These are the first round of amazing experiences now being produced, with future adventures including the human body, prehistoric Earth, energy, web of life and nano-worlds, to name just a few,” stated Aaron Sims, Creative Director, V3E.
“The EonVision Idome is a revolutionary solution that provides every participant with a unique immersive experience. It will awaken everybody’s curiosity for learning, surprise the heart with new experiences, excite the gut with thrilling adventures and feed the brain with knowledge. These next-generation ‘Edutainment’ venues provide a fluent experiential and thematic journey with a solid focus on science, discovery, history and knowledge transfer,” said Dan Lejerskar, Chairman, EON Reality.
