IRVINE, Calif., June 29, 2011 – EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider, announces the installation of an immersive Virtual Reality environment, the EON Icube Mobile, at the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University (UAIC) in Iasi, Romania. The immersive CAVE system is part of a larger project developed by AVITECH, the leading provider of audio-video solutions in Romania, for UAIC. It will be primary used for psychiatric research and may very well be used by Professors from other departments for research and teaching purposes.
The EON Mobile Icube installed in Iasi is a 3-wall system. Although it is a true immersive CAVE system, the EON Mobile Icube offers additional functionalities like flexibility and mobility. The system can easily be converted from a 3-wall system to a 7m wide Powerwall or any intermediate configurations, and can easily be moved from one place to the other. The installation was completed in March this year together with the support of AVITECH.
“We are witnessing in the last years how 3D technologies and Virtual Reality are revolutionizing the world. The impact of 3D in the educational process is increasing and is transforming the learning activities in a vibrant and an engaging experience. AVITECH is proud to announce the implementation of the Immersive CAVE in one of the most prestigious universities in Romania. With the support of EON Reality, one of the pioneers of 3D, we are happy to bring in Romania the latest technologies and tools for teachers to help them transform the way students are learning. The project was even more challenging as it involves also studies of the behavior of persons with special needs in an environment perfectly simulating different scenarios from the real world,” said Camelia Achelaritei, Product Manager AVITECH.
AVITECH is one of the most important integrators of solutions and systems designed for audio-video, videoconferencing, IT&C, security, safety, electrical installations and automations industries, based on premier quality equipment and services.
