HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Jan. 17, 2012-- Stereo Vision Entertainment Inc. (OTC:SVSN) announced today that on January 11th 2012 at London's BETT show, their minority owned subsidiary, Instant Effects, acquired in the REZN8 buyout, along with J/V partner White Space Productions, debuted our new 3D social media community `3D Hub'. 3D Hub is dedicated to promoting interactive 3D technologies to improve the classroom experience. See www.3d-hub.co.uk.
3D-Hub is based on years of research to find the most effective techniques for the interactive presentation of teaching and training materials, and providing software for the display of 3D "virtual models" that can be manipulated, animated, and disassembled interactively.
3D-Hub also offers a large and rapidly expanding library of virtual models optimized for classroom use. If desired, others can build their own 3D interactive teaching materials using the 3D-Hub authoring toolkit, available separately. The software and models work right away with standard 2D projectors and TVs. And, for even more impact, 3D-Hub fully supports stereoscopic 3D projectors and 3D TVs to truly captivate students and further enhance their learning potential.
3D-Hub is a joint venture between Instant Effects (USA, www.instanteffects.com ) and White Space Productions (UK, www.wsproductions.co.uk ). White Space specializes in 3D media production and brings their extensive experience providing professional graphics support for internationally acclaimed shows like Mobile World Congress to bear in creating stimulating and enticing educational media.
Instant Effects is a leading supplier of the real time 3D production software used in events such as the Primetime Emmy Awards and at major product launches with companies including Intel, Honda, and Acura. The same 3D technology that drives these world class events forms the core of the 3D-Hub interactive media player.
"We are thrilled to bring our professional real time 3D production technology into the classroom," says Instant Effects CEO Dr. Donald Brittain. "Students have high expectations for their media experiences, and case studies indicate that the 3D-Hub approach will improve students' attention, cognition, and retention for a broad range of curriculum topics."
Mark Reynard, 3D-Hub Commercial Director, adds, "After gathering input from more than 100 educators, and coupling that with our own event production experience, we designed a collaborative approach to building and delivering 3D classroom content that we believe is ideal for teachers, students, and content creators alike. We are looking forward to helping improve the efficacy and excitement of modern classroom instruction."
"This Instant Effects technological advancement demonstrates Stereo Vision's commitment to adding shareholder value by capitalizing on 3D's wide array of commercial applications," stated Stereo Vision Chairman and CEO Jack Honour. "We're very fortunate to be partnered with visionaries the likes of Instant Effects CEO Dr. Don Brittain Ph.D., and REZN8's nine time Emmy Award winning CEO, Paul Sidlo. The opportunities in the social media sector are boundless. With the guidance of Don, Paul, and company we're now fully capable of competing in the social media sector, and doing so in real time 3D."
