ZEBRA IMAGING EXHIBITING INNOVATIVE 3D HOLOGRAPHIC TECHNOLOGY FOR PLANNING
Zebra Imaging, Inc. will be sharing our innovative 3D Holographic Display technology for planning at the American Planning Association’s (APA) National Planning Conference, booth #236, in Los Angeles April 14–17, 2012 www.planning.org/conference/index.htm. The APA National Planning Conference is the world’s largest planning event, attracting planners and leaders from around the world. Zebra Imaging is the world leader in holographic display technology manufacturing state-of-the-art 3D holographic imagers and displays. Zscape Holographic Prints, our most popular product, is a portable full parallax (viewing images from above, below and side to side) color 3D image that is illuminated from a light to bring the 3D project to full visual experience beyond typical computerized and network tools and without glasses. Zscape Holographic Prints are sourced from a wide range of customer’s 3D digital data sources, including GIS, CAD/CAE/CAM files, BIM models, aerial photos, and laser scans, and files from popular 3D programs like ArcGIS 3D Analyst ™, Maya, Sketch-up, 3D Studio Max, AutoCAD, etc.
Historically, most planning is two dimensional but with the recent growth of 3D in society, 3D software and its users are transforming to managing data and projects in multiple dimensions. As visual information continues to become 3D, Zebra’s ZScape Holographic Print Capability provides a solution for conveying information in real 3D print media. Holograms are a highly useful tool to help communicate complex information in an easy to understand, visual way. Already accepted as a proven technology by the A/E/C market , the holographic prints provide an impacting visualization as an alternative to complex physical models or 3D videos to facilitate communication and understanding of purposed project plans to stakeholders. Zebra has had similar success and interest in using Zscape Digital Holographic Prints from the planning community for:
- Presenting projects with 3D visualization for public or federal funding without technical requirements
- Civic and community engagement and understanding of proposed projects that are political or require funding such as transit, entertainment or energy focus
- Convey conceptual or visionary plans to viewers without 2D to 3D imagination
- Understanding and collaborating on existing infrastructure and risk that affect the design challenge such as aesthetic/non aesthetic views, flooding, energy, and continuity
Zebra Imaging looks forward to sharing our 3D holographic technology with community planners, lighting the way to clearing understanding and better designs!
