With support for Microsoft Windows 8 and DirectX, Microsoft developers empowered to easily create applications in immersive 3D
SUNNYVALE, CA — April 22, 2013 — zSpace, Inc., a technology provider that is revolutionizing the future of human-computer interaction, today announced the company has joined Microsoft BizSpark, a global program designed to help software startups succeed. As part of the program, Microsoft provides startups with free access to its software development tools to design, develop, test and deploy software solutions, as well as connects them with key industry players and investors. zSpace, Inc.’s flagship product, zSpace, now supports Microsoft Windows 8 and DirectX, enabling Microsoft developers to create software applications in immersive 3D.
zSpace, an interactive virtual holographic platform, empowers developers to explore, build and design 3D applications within a truly immersive environment. With support for Windows 8 and DirectX, members of the BizSpark program can now use Microsoft’s software development tools to build applications on zSpace hardware. As both development platforms are highly graphical, especially DirectX, which focuses on full-color graphics, video and 3D animation, developing applications on zSpace offers enhanced realism and interactivity that can’t be achieved using a traditional 2D screen.
In addition to free access to Microsoft’s technology, members of the BizSpark program receive benefits including marketing exposure through joint efforts, and introductions to other new high-potential startups within the BizSpark community.
“As we look to expand our developer network, we are thrilled zSpace is now a part of the Microsoft BizSpark community,” said Paul Kellenberger, CEO, zSpace, Inc. “Microsoft’s BizSpark program has a fantastic mission, and we hope that through zSpace support of Microsoft tools, developers can unleash even more creativity and push their innovative ideas even further. We look forward to seeing how this group of startups and entrepreneurs tap our platform to design 3D applications and experiences that help reach new markets and grow their business.”
