IRVINE, Calif., March 14, 2013 – EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider, today announced that Norfolk Southern has appointed EON Reality to produce an internal communications video. This video allows Norfolk Southern to communicate the benefits of their new software solution called RailEdge – Movement Planner. The software improves railway operations and logistics across the company’s vast railway network.
“The EON Reality video was actually the second video production by EON Reality related to RailEdge – Movement Planner. In this project, Norfolk Southern had a need to develop a video piece that had two primary goals: to be an engaging training video with animations describing the software, but at the same time provide a visual description that allows our valued employees to embrace this new technology,” said Charlie Turnipseed, Manager Dispatch Planning Systems. “EON surpassed both goals and was such a success that we are now in engaging them on another project.”
“EON Reality is the leader in visualization solutions and simulation based technology. We have a long list of experience at conveying complex concepts and ideas in a very unique and visual way. The end result is that it is easy for the end user to understand,” said Frank Botdorf, Director of Business Development, EON Reality, Inc.
