Alioscopy Makes 3D Digital Signage Easier with User-Generated Tools and Templates for Autostereoscopic ‘No-Gasses’ Content
Customers Can Now Create, Edit, and Animate their Own Multi-View Autostereoscopic 3D Content On-the-Fly with Drag-and–Drop Ease
Alioscopy ® USA, a 3D visualization technology provider, today premiered a new User Generated Content (UGC) tools platform for its Autostereoscopic ‘No-Glasses’ LCD displays. Located at the Autodesk booth (RAI Amsterdam Booth 7.D21, Alioscopy is showing IBC show attendees how its new template-based User Generated Content platform allows its customers to create and/or edit 3D content easily on any template, adding or removing information in real-time for ‘attention-grabbing’ autostereoscopic ‘no-glasses’ 3D results.
Powered by Ignition, a real-time interactive engine from Applied Ideas, Inc., the User Generated Content platform allows any Alioscopy customer to create or add text, 3D models, and even 2D video for instant playback and display on pre-created Alioscopy-ready templates. The benefits of being able to add and remove 3D or video content and information to an Alioscopy 3D template allows customers to take creative control—in real-time.
“Alioscopy is constantly offering its customers a way to create and edit autostereoscopic 3D content quickly and efficiently,” said Philippe Roche, CEO of Alioscopy USA. “Along with our preferred content producer and template programs, the User Generated Content tools are a strategic way for us to help our customers further extend their ability to quickly create, customize and edit their own 3D autostereoscopic 3D content.”
The User Generated Content platform features an easy-to-use palette of 3D objects in a non-intimidating environment so artists can edit or create high-quality and eye-catching autostereoscopic content in real-time. By adding text, photos, and/or video, customers can realize a much faster and cost effective solution over waiting for an artist or agency to provide final work.
“We realized that the development process for any 3D environment can be intimidating—and autostereoscopic 3D adds a further dimension to that process,” said Dr. Kenneth Maffei, CEO of Applied IDEAS. “We wanted to create easy-to-use tools so customers can achieve their creative ideas by directly generating or modifying their own 3D content for playback within an intuitive and interoperative interface,” added Maffei.
