The New Standard
in 3D Visualization

Imagine 4D’s flagship product is Station IX™, the Multimmersive Experience™. Driven by our proprietary technology, Multimmersion™, Station IX™ is a collaborative and interactive display system that allows groups of users to view high-value content in a headset-free 3D environment.

This Multimmersive Experience™ makes it possible to teleport a group of users into a highly-realistic virtual world. This unique tool has been designed to help organizations plan for the future, promote decision-making and minimize risks. Station IX™ is a must for training, sales and project management.

Station IX™ is an impressive 3D environment that needs to be experienced in person to get the full effect. Book a personalized demo at one of our 2 studios in North America.

Multimmersion™
A Unique & Powerful Visualization Technology

Multimmersion™ is a proprietary technology developed and patented by Imagine 4D.

Fernando Petruzziello, a mechanical engineer and co-founder of Imagine 4D, wanted to find a way to offer an immersive, headset-free virtual reality experience that would allow groups of people to collaborate and interact within a 3D environment. Without the need for headsets, users can spend longer periods of time in a 3D environment, be more engaged, and manipulate 3D data more efficiently and collaboratively.

Since 2015, Imagine 4D invested important resources to make this idea become a reality. After 3 years of research and development, Multimmersion™ technology was born. Fernando’s vision become a success and was implemented inside Station IX™, Imagine 4D’s Multimmersive environment.

        AEC

        Large infrastructure projects are complex. Station IX™ facilitates the design and reviews of your BIM workflows to increase productivity and minimize project risks. Visualize 3D datasets through unmatched richness and depth of detail in a collaborative environment.

        Station IX™ is powered by our proprietary technology: Multimmersion™. With Multimmersion™, the goal is to create an immersive, headset-free environment with accurate depth perception and unmatched richness and depth of detail.

        To achieve this, Imagine 4D has designed an optical system that uses curved mirrors and a curved projection screen, which control the shape and location of imagery reflected from these mirrors. This technology it provides optimal 3D imagery and truly fascinating and immersive effects. In addition, it creates a team-friendly, comfortable and headset-free 3D environment that allows multiple users to explore, share and manage their high-value 3D assets efficiently and freely.

        Multimmersion™ is setting a new standard for immersion and 3D visualization.

        Anyone who has looked at themselves in a mirror has experienced seeing an image of themselves that appears to be located behind the mirror. Those that have looked in a curved mirror may even have noticed that the apparent location of their reflection changes depending on where they look in the mirror (along with their shape). Images that appear behind a mirror are known as virtual images. Reflected Reality™ uses these virtual images and the ways in which the human body perceives the depth of these images to create an actual sense of three dimensions (see figure below).

        Human beings have evolved to not only use multiple depth cues to perceive depth, but to rely on different depth cues depending on how far away an object appears. For objects that are very close to us (within approximately 10 ft.), human beings perceive depth primarily through physiological cues. For objects very far from us (more than approximately 100 ft.), we perceive depth primarily through psychological cues. At intermediary distances, we use a mixture of the two types of depth cues to determine depth.

        When immersive displays are placed 10 feet or less from us, the imagery tends to look very flat and two dimensional, as we are using physical depth cues to determine this fairly accurately (i.e. the imagery does not look or feel realistic). In using mirrors as Reflected Reality™ does, viewers feel like they’re viewing objects at an accurate distance. Curved mirrors cause virtual images’ depth to vary depending on the viewer’s position relative to the mirror, which allows the images to be three dimensional and realistic.

        The image below presents this effect.
