A premiere in France!

IRVINE, Calif., October 29, 2012 – EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider, today announced that the City of Cannes will use EON Reality as the software and content provider for their “Cannes 3D Education” project, which aims to confirm results of previous pilot projects conducted in 2011 in 15 European schools showing the positive effects of learning in 3D.

The City of Cannes will begin experimenting with 3D in four primary schools, where 120 pupils from CM1 (age 9) and CM2 (age 10) will use 3D as a new learning tool in the classroom. Teachers will be given kits to create their own interactive 3D learning courses that will include a 3D projector by NEC, active 3D glasses by Volfoni, and 3D content creation software by EON Reality. With EON Creator software, teachers will be able to create complete 3D lesson plans from content on the EON Experience portal, an online library of thousands of 3D models, which can then be shared online with other teachers and students.  “Today’s students have changed,” said Evelyne Brun, Deputy Mayor in charge of Education at the City of Cannes. “They grew up with rapid technological developments. The use of these tools is natural for them. In the school environment, it creates a new motivation.

Results from last year’s projects have exceeded expectations, both on the faculty’s side and on the 3D manufacturers’ side. “We have received excellent feedback from teachers,” said Pierre-Julien Barraud, Business Development Director at EON Reality in Europe. “Everyone has reported an overall increase in students’ understanding. Attention levels doubled from 46{0fab034ea82b07661647ea8532e9066bcdd529bddfd482414d4493f90063c904} to 92{0fab034ea82b07661647ea8532e9066bcdd529bddfd482414d4493f90063c904} after a 3D session. Students seemed more motivated to learn, asked more questions, and were more engaged. EON Reality is proud to contribute to this project and supports teachers and students with 3D learning tools.

We are very pleased to participate in this project in favor of education. We hope that our products bring a real benefit in the teaching process and that it will improve student learning,” said Thierry Henkinet, President and co-founder of Volfoni.

With its significant expertise in the field of education and technology pioneer for active 3D projectors for classrooms, NEC Display Solutions has enthusiastically joined this initiative by the City of Cannes. Active 3D in education has demonstrated, through various projects, all of these advantages and benefits in terms of learning, we are very confident about the success of this technology with students in Cannes,” said Nadir Ben Bouali, Sales Director of NEC France.

Projectors and 3D glasses provided respectively by NEC and Volfoni, are based on the DLP-link technology invented by Texas Instruments, which allowed democratization and the ease of use of the 3D, especially in education.

We are very proud to participate in this ambitious project as the use of the 3D in education particularly inspires us. The DLP technology empowering 3D-ready projectors offers a bright, clear, contrasting picture with remarkable level of details so that students and teachers can live the high quality educational 3D experience. An independent study initiated by Texas Instruments has already proven that 3D had a high potential in the French educational system. We are confident that Cannes’ pupils participating in this project will be excited by the discovery of this new technology,” said Emmanuel Herbreteau, EMEA Marketing Manager for the DLP Division.

I was really hoping if anyone could recommend a trustworthy web site where I can get CBD Shops International Sales Leads I am currently examining, and Not exactly sure which one would be the most ideal option and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
