About the Program:
This technology can render a full color 3D scene, object, or data visualization as a still image or movie with natural depth cues and other qualities for optical realism. A team can easily immerse themselves in the display from all sides without wearing 3D glasses to see facial and body cues from the team. Such realism frees the team for more analysis, collaboration, and creativity on complex tasks. Developed for military use, FoVI 3D sees commercial applications in Medical, Oil & Gas and CAD.
