SENSIO, Darkworks Team Up 3D Gaming Technologies

3D image processing company SENSIO Technologies and 3D video game developer Darkworks S.A. have reached an agreement to offer SENSIO Hi-Fi 3D along with TriOviz for Games Technology to 3D game developers and publishers. Under the agreement, SENSIO Hi-Fi 3D will be integrated into TriOviz for Games Technology upon request, giving developers and publishers the ability to produce 3D content in up to 1080p on gaming platforms, even on consoles requiring compression.

TriOviz for Games Technology enables smooth stereoscopic 3D conversion of multimedia products. The technology leverages existing 3D graphics information within each game to enhance the depth of field. Best known for its integration into “Enslaved: Odyssey to the West” and “Batman Arkham Asylum,” TriOviz for Games Technology is in use by a variety of international game publishers as well as in additional titles that are yet to be announced.

With the combined company offering, licensees of TriOviz for Games Technology now will have the option of employing SENSIO technology to guarantee a quality 3D image. According to SENSIO, “SENSIO Hi-Fi 3D delivers visually lossless 3D images that are so faithful to the originally captured images that the difference is imperceptible to the eye of the viewer.”

“Video gaming 3D technology will shape the coming year in games, and Darkworks with TriOviz for Games Technology will continue to lead the charge in this arena through both developmental advancements and essential partnerships with industry leaders such as SENSIO,” says Guillaume Gouraud, Managing Director at Darkworks. “SENSIO Hi-Fi 3D adds value to our TriOviz for Games Technology, enabling our clients to publish 3D games at the highest possible resolution. We take pride in providing genuine solutions that enable our clients to create lifelike game characters and environments, and with the addition of SENSIO Hi-Fi 3D, it will further ensure that this quality is maintained in three dimensions on leading game consoles.”
