“The nineteen companies honored came from brilliant teams in ten countries including the US, China, Japan, Korea, England, Wales, France, Belgium, Germany, and Canada,” said Society President Jim Chabin. “Hollywood and all of us in entertainment are being enriched by a truly global marketplace of brilliant new ideas for making our content more exciting for audiences everywhere,” he added.
zSpace was named “3D Education Product of the Year” for the zSpace STEM Lab, consisting of virtual reality desktops each outfitted with a custom interaction stylus as well as a wide variety of educational software. The desktops track head movements to provide the students with a personal and immersive virtual reality experience. Virtual holographic images can be “lifted” from the screen and manipulated with the stylus. Some applications provide multi-sensory feedback; for example, students working with a virtual heart can see the blood moving through it as well as feel it beating.
“It’s an honor to be named a Technology Award winner by The International 3D and Advanced Imaging Society for the second time in the last two years,” said Paul Kellenberger, CEO for zSpace. “These awards are a testament to our commitment to significantly advancing the way people learn, teach and communicate in today’s world.”
