Handyscan 3D Sneak Preview: Creaform shifts to 4D and Pre-Releases the VIUscan 3D Color Scanner
Los Angeles, August 12, 2008, Exhibit #453 â”€ Creaform, developer and manufacturer of the well-known Handyscan 3D line-up of handheld and self-positioning laser scanners, once again pushes the limits of portable 3D scanning and introduces its newest and most innovative product: the VIUscan, a self-positioning handheld and high resolution portable 3D color scanner.
The VIUscan color laser scanner can achieve hyperrealistic results thanks to features such as simultaneous texture and geometry acquisition, real-time rendering, true color acquisition through a built-in lighting system, adjustable uniform texture resolution and automatic 100 percent-accurate texture mapping.
Like its fellow scanners from the Handyscan 3D line-up, the VIUscan is a very accurate, easy to learn and use, and versatile device. Most likely, the VIUscan will prove extremely efficient and powerful in the heritage preservation and museology, multimedia, gaming and entertainment industries, not to mention e-marketing and Web development applications.
â€œThis new color 3D scanner gives us the opportunity to reach new markets, and the possibilities for innovation are endless, said Charles Mony, president of Creaform. SIGGRAPH brings together the best and brightest in computer graphics, multimedia and design, and is a perfect venue to preview our new product.â€œ
