RealViz Launch VTour at Imagina 2006Creation of Photo-real 3D Virtual Tours (January 30, 2006)
REALVIZ, a leader in image processing software development, will launch VTour, the latest addition to their software portfolio for content creation, at IMAGINA in Monaco this week. VTour draws on the award-winning technology of Stitcher and ImageModeler and offers users of all levels an innovative and effective solution for the creation of photo-real 3D environments from 2D pictures or panoramas. The REALVIZ team will be demonstrating VTour, along with a selection of their other applications at IMAGINA, which takes place at the Grimaldi Forum in Monte Carlo from 1-3 February 2006.
Starting directly from digital photographs, or from full 360 degree panoramas (created using Stitcher, for example), VTour facilitates the creation of 3D scenes such as interiors (rooms, buildings.etc) or urban areas (places, streets.etc), using polygonal photo-textured primitives. The results can be exported/ published as either a 3D movie, or as an interactive application using 3D viewers such as Macromedia Shockwave Player or Virtools Web Player.
VTour has been specifically developed for use in a wide range of applications, such as virtual walkthroughs inside buildings and monuments, 3D simulation, virtual reality, urban planning and video games, and is also well suited for the creation of virtual sets for film and television. VTour thus ideally complements StoryViz, REALVIZ' 3D previz and storyboarding software, enabling users to create photo-real backdrops for their previsualisation projects.
Pricing & Availability: VTour will be available from mid-February 2006 in English for Windows at a price point of 500 ? / $ 580 US. A Mac version will also be available from Summer 2006. For further information on VTour, please go to: www.realviz.com, or contact [email protected].
