BRUSSELS, BELGIUM-- SoftKinetic, one of the world's leading providers of 3D vision and gesture-recognition solutions, announced the latest version of the company's gesture-recognition middleware platform—iisu 3.6.
SoftKinetic's iisu middleware is an open platform, working with any 3D depth-sensing camera. This latest version removes any calibration steps for the cameras, scene, and users before starting to interact, cutting down on installation and setup time. iisu 3.6 also brings improved scene and occlusion management to games and apps.
"Our middleware platform continues to lead the industry in terms of both feature set, development time, and robustness," said Michel Tombroff, CEO of SoftKinetic. "With the latest updates to iisu, we've focused on improving and simplifying the full-body driven experience to the highest level."
With iisu version 3.6, developers can create gesture-controlled experiences for both long-range and close-range interactions. This platform allows for the tracking of full skeletons and management of multiple users for creating innovative living room experiences, as well as the ability to create PC and laptop-based apps that can track ten fingers and track the orientation and volume of two hands.
SoftKinetic designs, develops, and commercializes 3D time-of-flight sensor technologies and cameras, as well as a complete family of 3D gesture-recognition middleware for both long-range and short-range applications. With a highly optimized CPU footprint, SoftKinetic's solutions are perfect for embedded platforms, as well as personal computers, consoles, set-top boxes, and smart TVs. Combined with world-class support, SoftKinetic is the leader in gesture-recognition offerings.
SoftKinetic's vision is to give everyone the freedom to control, explore, and enjoy the entire digital world through the most natural and intuitive user interfaces and machine interactions. SoftKinetic is a leading provider of gesture-based platforms for the consumer electronics and professional markets, including interactive digital entertainment, consumer electronics, healthcare, digital signage, and medical systems. The company offers a complete family of 3D imaging and gesture-recognition solutions, including patented 3D CMOS time-of-flight sensors and cameras (DepthSense family of products, formerly known as Optrima product family), multi-platform and multi-camera 3D gesture-recognition middleware and tools (iisu family of products), and games and applications from SoftKinetic Studios.
