We want to thank everyone who participated in and/or attended I/ITSEC 2015. We have included photos below- check out the experience we had at the show!
We wanted to give our customers a taste of the future for MÄK products while also illustrating the capabilities of the products in concert.
Unreleased versions of VR-Forces and VR-Vantage hinted at features in development. VR-Forces debuted Airspace Modeling, Blueberry 3D integration and a Group Object construct. VR-Vantage showed off stunning procedurally-generated terrain and thousands of airports generated from X-Plane data.
Five stations were solution-oriented product combinations. Our Command and Staff Training station showed the potential for Incident Management and Company Commander training, as well as two scenarios to test attendees' command skills. Our First-Person Player Stations put visitors inside a first-person shooter, behind the wheel of a Light Armored Vehicle, and in the cockpit of a fighter jet with the immersive power of an Oculus device.
We also unveiled great new demos for our Humans, Link, and Web and Mobile technology. Our advances in the Terrain department shined at every station.
Operation Blended Warrior ran during the week and was a huge success for MÄK, as over 1/3 of all participants chose to use our VR-Exchange software.
On Monday, we held our annual MÄKfest at Disney after the show. After spending some time enjoying cocktails and great food, we watched their famous Illuminations firework display- it was a truly magical experience.
We presented three seminars at the Rosen Center on Tuesday morning, highlighting Terrain Strategies, Behavior Authoring, and Correlated Sensor Simulation. All were well-attended and successful.
Jim Kogler did an amazing job presenting Blueberry 3D integration into VR-Forces at the Innovation showcase on Wednesday. On Wednesday we also celebrated our 25th year serving the modeling and simulation industry. It was a tremendous success and we went through about 225 cupcakes and drinks in about 35 minutes! Thanks to everyone who came over to celebrate with us.
Thanks again to everyone who participated and/or attended I/ITSEC 2015- it was another success for MÄK's partners and customers!
Looking forward to seeing many of you at shows and conferences in 2016. Happy Holidays!
