Softkinetic and Optrima 3D Gesture Recognition

Currently Available, This Revolutionary Technology Will Change the Way We Interact with Consumer Electronics Devices and Digital Entertainment

Softkinetic S.A., the leading 3D gesture recognition software developer, and Optrima S.A., the inventor of the Current Assisted Photonic Demodulation (CAPD) 3D sensing technology, today announced a strategic joint venture to introduce the Softkinetic-Optrima™ solution – the most complete 3D depth-sensing imaging and gesture recognition interface solution on the market.

The Softkinetic-Optrima solution combines Softkinetic’s industry leading 3D gesture recognition software with Optrima’s patented 3D camera and sensor hardware to bring true, one-to-one full-body gesture recognition interfaces to digital entertainment and consumer electronics.

“The availability of a high-performance, low cost 3D imaging solution from Softkinetic-Optrima represents a defining moment in the global consumer electronics industry,” said Michel Tombroff, CEO of Softkinetic. “The solution we have developed will bridge the interactive gap between video games, movies, music, web-browsing, and more, dramatically accelerating the consolidation of these digital mediums on electronics devices.”

After 14 years of combined research and development, the new technology from Softkinetic and Optrima is the first all-in-one gesture-recognition solution that combines industry-leading hardware and software. It revolutionizes human-computer interaction by leveraging a totally universal software architecture that can be integrated into nearly any hardware or software platform. The Softkinetic-Optrima solution is poised to become an industry standard for controller-free gesture interaction with 3D cameras and sensors, including gesture-based video games, interactive multimedia televisions, PC operating systems, and much more.
