For a long time humans have dreamed to virtually teleport people from one location to another in a realistic way as an alternative to today’s computer generated avatars. By combining EON Coliseum’s easy-to-use online Interactive 3D meeting and EON Icube multi-sided immersive environment technology with 4D View Solutions’ unique capability of 3D Capturing people in real-time with its 4DV Interactive platform, this solution has now become a reality.

Real People in Virtual Meetings
EON and 4D View Solutions have joined forces to bring real-time 3D Capture technology to EON’s Coliseum platform. For the first time ever virtual meeting participants are able to participate in virtual meetings as full photorealistic 3D Video images of themselves. Coliseum meeting participants can view their counterparts in real-time 3D Video as if they were in the same room and interact with them as real human beings. Virtual meeting communication has become meaningful as participants are able to express not only words and graphics but also facial expressions, gestures and physical reactions. With 4D Views’s 3D Capture technology virtual meeting users can finally «beam themselves» in 3D Video to remote meetings to get business done without paying the cost of traveling.
New Realism in 3D Training
EON Reality and 4D View Solutions are also revolutionizing 3D simulation-based training environments with 3D Capture technology. Virtual environment trainees have real 3-dimensional people guiding them through their learning objectives. No longer will the reality of the virtual training environment be broken by stale and emotionless avatars. During the sessions 3D images of the trainees themselves can be inserted in real-time into the virtual training sequence. Trainees have real-time 3D Video body positioning and movement feedback. Other trainees are able to watch the simulation in full 3D and replay key segments after the fact during post-session analysis. 3D Video Capture technology is greatly improving 3D training simulations by making them about real people achieving real results.
