Tech company to continue developing products for virtual reality and game industries

Frrench 3D equipment specialist Volfoni has acquired stereoscopic 3D middleware outfit TriOviz.

TriOviz’s software development kit uses existing 3D graphics information to help enhance a game's depth perception, geometry volume and position of gaming characters and environments.

The middleware has been used in a number of games including Assassin’s Creed III, Batman: Arkham City and Gears of War 3.

Following the acquisition, TriOviz will continue working on the development of products for the game and virtual reality industries.

“Expectations for immersion gaming are growing rapidly. With the addition of the TriOviz team's assets, we strengthen our market share by providing simple solutions and easy access to immersion technologies,” said Volfoni CEO Thierry Henkinet.

“We are positioned to make gameplay more immersive, and more fun to play.”
