IRVINE, Calif., September 4, 2013 – EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider for business and education, today announced its newest venture in EON Sports. EON Sports will facilitate cutting edge visualization training methods for sports performance enhancement. The headquarters will be based out of Kansas City.
The software allows the athlete to feel as if they are on the field, immersed in game action and will have a dramatic impact on all ages, from youth sports to the professional level. Brendan Reilly, CEO and Co-Founder of EON Sports: « Strategically, this was a move that made sense on a couple different levels. One, we realize that the success of the software is dependent on how happy our users (coaches and athletes) are, and the first user happens to be down the road at KU, so proximity is key. And two, Kansas City has a certain technology and entrepreneurial focus that we are excited to tap into. With Google Fiber and some other tech initiatives, there are a lot of ways we can grow and expand this company in the Midwest. »
« We are very excited about this new venture into the area of sports training, assessment and skill improvement and at the same time building EON’s presence in the Mid-West. Virtual Reality technology has been a corner stone for training in Defense, Aerospace and Energy markets for many years and the applications in Sports are a natural extension for EON Reality’s software and virtual reality systems such as the EON Icube Mobile, » said Mats W. Johansson, CEO at EON Reality, Inc.
By being immersed in game action, athletes can increase the amount of repetitions they are exposed to, thus increasing their chances of success when they step on the field. When an athlete or coach is put into the system, they feel as if they are actually on a field during a game. Reilly describes the benefits of training in virtual reality, « Coaches and athletes watch a lot of game film, but are they learning from game film? In football, the more repetitions you are exposed to, the better as a player you will be. We are taking the same technology that fighter pilots use in training, and applying that to quarterbacks, linebackers, etc. It is very powerful. » Learn more via our website.
