Eon Reality and NEC Join Forces for 3D in the Classroom
Spurring 3D in the classroom with starter kit
IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - August 18, 2010) - EON Reality, Inc., the world's leading interactive 3D software provider, has joined forces with NEC Display Solutions to offer schools a 3D starter kit as part of its plan to roll-out virtual learning and interactive training solutions.
The 3D starter kit, recently released by NEC Display Solutions, is an introduction to 3D teaching and consists of active 3D glasses, 3D projectors, and interactive software together with 3D movie samples and content for educational purposes. The EON 7.0 Viewer from EON Reality provides vivid interactive examples from fields such as simulation, engineering, design, architecture, biology and science, suitable for education as well as for professional applications.
This year at BETT, the world's largest education technology event, EON Reality and NEC Display Solutions presented a new user-friendly and cost effective solution for producing and displaying 3D content. "We work in close collaboration with a network of education content builders and technical providers to equip schools with content and hardware for the adoption of 3D technology," said Pierre-Julien Barraud, European Business Development Director at EON Reality. "Through our virtual learning program we offer a range of interactive 3D content creation tools, integrated display systems solutions and access to virtual learning expertise," he continued.
EON Reality also recently launched EON Coliseum, an online interactive virtual-world platform, where realistic communication is made possible between multiple users, incorporating 3D worlds, slideshows, videos and, most important, the ability to interact with 3D objects virtually from anywhere in the world in order to accelerate learning.
Ulf Greiner, Product Manager for Business Projectors at NEC Display Solutions thinks the 3D development for education is still at a an early stage compared with the corporate or entertainment market. However, he stated; "the entry barrier is getting smaller -- with the introduction of new interactive technologies and the one projector 3D solution with no special screen requirements -- the landscape for education is rapidly changing."
