NORCROSS, GA, JANUARY 15, 2014 – Leica Geosystems Inc. today announced that it is taking a leading role in the premiere REAL 2015 event at Fort Mason Center in San Francisco, Feb. 25-26, 2015. As a top-tier gold sponsor, Leica Geosystems will showcase the latest state-of-the-art in dedicated and integrated laser scanning, indoor professional documentation with images and LIDAR, virtual surveying, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and other innovative 3D capture solutions as well as fast and intuitive processing software that streamlines workflows and facilitates the creation of high-value 3D deliverables. Leica Geosystems thought leaders will also share strategic insights on trends and technologies that are driving the 3D revolution.
The first ever convergence of the sensing, making and creative industries, REAL is a unique gathering to explore reality computing as the continuum of reality data, from 3D capture to 3D processing through to AR/VR, 3D printing and fabrication. The two-day event will bring together multiple disciplines doing real work in 3D from across architecture and art, engineering and entertainment, manufacturing and media, heritage and health, sports and science. Through REAL TALK, an exclusive technology summit, and REAL LIVE, a world’s fair of 3D technology demonstrations, attendees will experience the transformational technologies shaping the future of building construction, engineering and manufacturing.
“Over the past 15 years, we’ve seen high definition surveying (HDS) and 3D laser scanning technology mature and become more widely accepted, while demand for other 3D sensors and systems has also increased,” said Ken Mooyman, president of Leica Geosystems NAFTA. “Now there are many different ways to capture the point cloud data, and the extension of these technologies being used in day-to-day applications is creating the next wave of innovation. We’re excited to have the opportunity to help shape an event that will give forward-thinking professionals new insight on the tools and information they need to be successful in the rapidly changing markets they serve as 3D and reality computing take hold.”
