Infinite Z Launches zSpace at Autodesk University

Revolutionary Platform Supports Autodesk Products Enabling Highly Realistic Visualization and Natural 3D Interaction that Brings Designs to Life

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. and LAS VEGAS, Nov. 29, 2011 — (PRNewswire) — Infinite Z, Inc. ®, a technology provider that enables virtual-holographic 3D imagery to bring designs to life, today announced the formal launch of the company and its flagship product, zSpace® at Autodesk University. The revolutionary zSpace platform is immediately available to early access beta customers as a standalone product now supporting Autodesk® Maya® and Autodesk® Showcase® software. zSpace will be generally available in the first half of 2012.

zSpace provides a highly realistic 3D visualization experience that enables designers and engineers to work with product designs in a way not previously possible in a traditional 2D computing environment. Using a proprietary stereoscopic display, trackable eyewear, a new type of direct interaction stylus and an innovative software platform, objects in zSpace appear "solid" in open space, with full color and high resolution, and can be directly manipulated as if they were real physical objects. This capability gives users a natural way to navigate, grab, slice, carve, zoom and explore models as never before possible. A virtual demonstration of zSpace is available at http://zspace.com/

Initially focused towards the digital/product design, scientific, medical, GIS/geospatial and government markets, zSpace is a completely new model for experiencing and communicating design ideas and significantly advancing the way people solve problems, learn, teach and communicate in today's world.

"zSpace is the wave of the future for product design and development," said Paul Kellenberger, CEO of Infinite Z. "Our immersive zSpace experience enables users to interact with 3D applications just as naturally and intuitively as they would with real physical objects, which has never been possible before in the virtual computing space. zSpace has the potential to dramatically enhance and improve user workflows, saving companies time and money, and enabling designers and engineers to represent their ideas more effectively and realistically than possible with today's 2D displays."

zSpace replaces indirect access of 2D rendered 3D objects with direct control of stereo 3D rendered objects, providing increased productivity for those proficient in Maya 2011 and Showcase Professional 2012  and accelerated learning and utilization of products for less experienced users. Beta versions of zSpace plug-ins are available today for Autodesk Maya 2011 and Showcase Professional 2012, as well as a proof-of-concept zSpace demo for Autodesk Alias Design software.

"The quality of 3D stereo in zSpace is impressive; I feel like we've been living in a 2D world, and an application like zSpace with such immersive qualities gives better cognition to digital 3D content," said Brian Pene, senior principal researcher, office of the CTO at Autodesk. "I think the future is 3D content so seamlessly realistic that you can't tell the difference between the virtual and real worlds. I can see many use cases for zSpace that fit into Autodesk's breadth of solutions and am looking forward to working on zSpace with additional Autodesk software products moving forward."

Infinite Z will be showcasing zSpace at its booth #911 in the exhibit hall of Autodesk University as well as at the Autodesk gallery, Autodesk® manufacturing lounge, IMAGINiT Technologies, booth, 3Dconnexion booth and Lenovo Platinum Lounge.
