3DreamTeam is one of 70 companies chosen by VentureBeat to launch at the DEMO Fall 2010 event taking place this week in Silicon Valley. After our selection, the companies pay a fee to present. Our coverage of them remains objective.
With the advent of the popular Google street view and Google Earth, Web surfers are increasingly interested in traveling the world from the comfort of their computer.
3DreamTeam, a technology company based in Moscow, presented Vizerra today at DEMO, taking this remote tourism concept into three dimensions. Its software allows companies to create photorealistic environments and tours, similar to what 3D gamers experience. The resulting 3D presentations can be posted and viewed from a computer desktop or Web browser, and the company is developing an iPhone and iPad platform, too.
Vizerra is being used by travel-industry customers, but 3DreamTeam has Vizerra-based applications for a number of entities. Museums or historical societies can create tours of, say, the house George Washington grew up in; architects can create detailed 3D models of a building they are working on; education companies can make learning tools for students.
So far, 3DreamTeam has produced 20 projects so far for UNESCO World Heritage Sites, along with product simulations and construction renderings. It has clients across Europe, Russia and the U.S.
The company was founded in 2008 by CEO Arman Gukasyan, and has revenues to date of 1.8 million euros, or about $2.3 million. It has been funded so far by Gukasyan and an angel investor in Russia, and the company has 35 full-time employees.
