EON Reality Supported Interactive Digital Center in Claremont-Ferrand, France Launched With a Grand Opening Ceremony

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - November 25, 2009) - EON Reality, the world's leading interactive 3D software provider, is proud to announce the Grand Opening Ceremony of the virtual reality center of Clermont-Ferrand took place on November 10th. Clermont-Ferrand is the eighteenth city to enter the Interactive Digital Center (IDC) network that is supported by EON Reality and the IDC Consortium.

The Grand Opening Ceremony was attended by Rene Souchon, President of the Auvergne State, Serge Godard, Mayor and President of Clermont Community, Charles Moreau, General Secretary for Regional Affairs representing the prefect, Jacques Fournet, Chairman of the Economic Development Committee and Pierre-Julien Barraud, European Business Development Director for EON Reality. Dan Lejerskar, Chairman of EON Reality, although not physically present, participated via a virtual video message.

"Fun" was one key element of the Ceremony: discovery of a business jet cabin reconstructed in 3D, 360° visit of the local "Place de Jaude," bare-hands interaction system, 3D TV that does not require wearing any special glasses to name a few. But "fun" is not the only mission of the Center. "Virtual is nothing fictitious, it creates reality before it exists," said Serge Godard. "Clermont's ambition is to democratize access to these technologies so that local companies can innovate more easily," Serge Godard highlighted the unifying aspect of this project. Clermont Community and the Auvergne State have each contributed 300,000 Euros, the European funds 600,000 Euros and EON Reality 2.6 million Euros.

Pierre-Julien Barraud stated that the membership of Clermont to the Interactive Digital Center (IDC) network is a real asset to the regional capital: "Clermont-Ferrand is our main base in Europe. International projects will start from here. The Center has already been visited by delegations from the Sultanate of Oman, Jordan and Brazil."
