Antycip Simulation, European integrator of virtual reality solutions and 3D immersive rooms has recently completed the installation of the first virtual reality room of its kind in the world.
Located in La Plaine Image, France, The Open Reality Experience (TORE) takes immersive experience to new levels, providing users with the opportunity to collaboratively explore 3D environments without any viewing disruption, at 180° and with consistent user distance.
Designed, built and installed by Antycip Simulation, TORE is a one-of-a-kind, immersive tool for those who are working and conducting research in the area. The platform brings together social sciences, design and history and the digital world in a unique, innovative space which advances the capabilities of scientists and researchers at the University of Lille.
With the aim of developing 3D immersive experiences in virtual environments for breakthrough research, particularly in the field of Visual Sciences and Culture, TORE was co-financed by the ANR (PIA-Equipex IrDIVE) and the European Fund for Regional Economic Development (FEDER).
TORE’s unique characteristics lie in its screen shape, bent in all dimensions to free up users from straight edges, thus providing an unprecedented technological breakthrough compared with any other immersive systems.
TORE sits on a three-storey structure, also designed by Antycip. On the back of the screen and also rigged to the structure are 20x Christie Mirage WU7K-M WUXGA 3-Chip DLP projectors.
Content wise - in order to deal with such a large surface and multiple sources, Antycip worked closely with its partner Scalable Display Technologies to create dynamic eye-point warping and blending.
