Advanced Visualisation: What is Value of this Technology ?

Transforming Understanding


Taking the “Conceptual



-
By far,
organisations

invest a great
proportion of their R&D energy into
the development and understanding
of content.


-

Central to content development is
human understanding, perception
and communication.


Taking the “Conceptual”, and making it “Experiential”.


-
Informing perception with
experience can be an
invaluable tool in affirming or
arriving at new conclusions.


-

Inspires the imagination as a
driver in perception and as
these are drivers for
innovation.


-

Further, consider the value
of Communicating ideas
through experience to teams,
stakeholders and customers.



4 Concepts to transforming understanding

4 Concepts to transforming understanding

-

A sense of Scale

-

Greater perception of relationships

-

Enlarged comprehension

4 Concepts to transforming understanding

-

A key element of
perception is depth and
relative relationships.

-

“Rendered” 3D shows
shape.

-
“Stereoscopic 3D”
reveals perceived depth.



4 Concepts to transforming understanding

-
First person perspective tracking and interaction
is essential to the individual experience.


-

Interacting with data sets from the viewer
-
centric
perspective is critical in engaging the viewer in the
visualisation
.


-

Focus is on the intuitive quality of the interaction
and not the tools of the interaction.

4 Concepts to transforming understanding

-

When “me” becomes “we”.


-

Shared understanding,
especially diversity in
understanding as a key
component to innovation.


-

Oil and Gas examples, where
well
-
head designers peer review
with well operations staff,
virtually.


And it’s so easy….even a child can understand

Future Evolutions and Trends...

Seemingly un

related technologies are simultaneously
evolving, creating opportunities where complimentary
technologies intersect.

-

Internet collaboration technologies

-

Interactive and gesture technologies

-

Content management technologies


“Avatar Effect” or 3Dism making this technology more
desirable and in effect widening the base of the “pyramid”
and creating new markets for adoption.


The widening of this base will help encompass new
opportunities in the “lower realms” of the technology where
“accessibility” is important. Evolving technologies will
heighten the peak of the pyramid creating new “fusion”
technologies in the higher realms.


Christie and The
Communitech

Hub

Christie is a founding partner and supporter of this innovative facility


Concepts:


Tech Community: It’s about the people in the eco

system.

> Larger and mature technology
organisations

and Academic Institutions
:

---

RIM, Open Text, AGFA, Desire2Learn, COMDEV, Christie

---

University Waterloo, Conestoga College,

Laurier University


> Startup Companies focused on digital media technologies

----

Gaming, Video, Cloud Computing, Social Media, Interactive Technologies.


> Support Partners:

----

Legal, Financial Services, Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors, Marketing, etc…


High “potential energy” for innovation in the concept of community. “Kinetically” this may
happen as people collaborate and interact in the community. Where complimentary
technologies intersect, what new technologies will be envisioned and thus created?

Digital Media Technologies: It’s also about the technology


-

Christie has implemented many of it’s higher forms of
Viz

Technology.


-

Making this technology accessible by removing the “capital cost”
roadblock.

---

Putting this technology in the hands and minds of new
generations of potential users.


-
Making this technology accessible by removing the “Tool

-

Making this technology accessible by removing the

roadblock and
implementing that “middleware” technology.

Key Point:


Not just about “Technology ideas” (though that is a part of it),


Importantly,


This is what “our” customers are looking for, and this is what “your”
customers are looking for.


Thus innovation may occur through informed relationships based on
greater “shared” awareness of market needs and intelligence, and opens
the door to multi
-
dimensional collaborative relationships.
