The aquarium The Deep showcases Alioscopy monitors in its exhibition tour
The internationally-famous aquarium known as THE DEEP - which is housed in an iconic building in the current UK City of Culture, Kingston-upon-Hull, was established to tell the story of the world’s oceans… from the beginning of time until today.
One of the first of many unique features that visitors to THE DEEP will encounter is the Fossil Wall - which contains an array of very dramatic fossilised heads from prehistoric sea creatures.
To enhance this Fossil Wall, and add an element of 21st Century storytelling to appeal to tech-savvy kids (of all ages!), THE DEEP engaged digital2go - a UK-based 3D solution provider - to bring three animals back to life.
Alioscopy 55” Glasses-Free 3D Displays, positioned next to the fossilised heads of the Pliosaurus, Archelon & Dunkleosteus, now show exciting and bespoke 3D CGI animations - each of which starts with a full 3D scan of the actual fossil… which is then seen to morph back into the ‘living’ animal.
The three animated sequences were designed & created to tell a specific short story about the Pliosaurus, Archelon & Dunkleosteus, and they end with a ‘surprise’ 3D effect. All three animations can be previewed in 2D by clicking on the icons below.
Just a few months after installation, news of the success of the latest attraction at THE DEEP has spread far & wide.
digital2go is working with other operators of themed public attractions, plus museums, casinos and retail, to deliver solutions based on Alioscopy’s unique & patented glasses-free 3D technology. The company also has a growing business with educational establishments including medical schools & universities - look out for more case studies to follow!

Worldwide Innovation Challenge
The Worldwide Innovation Challenge was launched in December 2013 by François Hollande, president of the French Republic. It aims at promoting the development of leading companies driven by innovation and harboring a particularly strong potential in seven markets, viewed as strategically important for the French economy. 1200 projects were investigated, 300 were auditioned and 110 winners were selected. An award-winning ceremony was held at the Elysée Palace on July 23, 2014.
Alioscopy was awarded for its virtual reality device enabling a three-dimensional image to "levitate" between the machine and the user. The operator can manipulate this virtual clone, as if he were holding a real object. Among others, the aim is to provide surgeons with an innovative preoperative tools, displaying modeled representations of patient organs, segmented by French company Visible Patient.

LG rolls-out 200 Alioscopy displays
LG has chosen to use two hundred Alioscopy 3D HD 24'' displays in mobile phone retail outlets in selected European countries for the release of its new Optimus 3D phone, the World’s First Tri-Dual Architecture Smartphone with full 3D. Project was managed by 3D production and technology specialist Inition. This is Europe’s largest bespoke in-store glasses free 3D campaign to date.
The in-store Alioscopy screens showcase the 3D functionality of the LG Optimus 3D, which lets you record 3D videos and take 3D photos, before watching them back on the phone without the need for 3D glasses. The video shows the LG Optimus 3D used to record stunts performed by freerunners; the stunts are then shared online on a dedicated 3D channel directly from the phone and via an HDMI connection to one of LG’s 3D TV’s.
Craig MacLennan, Channel Marketing Manager at LG Electronics Europe commented: ''This innovative campaign is the perfect way to demonstrate the glasses free experience of the LG Optimus 3D. It reaches consumers at the critical point of purchase and provides engaging, informative, stunning 3D content.''
The live action autostereoscopic footage was shot from 2 separate camera perspectives with 6 extra virtual perspectives created during post production in order to comply with the Alioscopy format. 3D CGI graphic elements were composited with the live action sequences.
Inition also supplied the 200 autostereoscopic screens from Alioscopy, the highest quality glasses-free digital signage screens on the market. These are rolling out in France, Germany, Spain, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland, Austria, and Benelux. In the UK, the promotion is being played at 20 Carphone Warehouse stores and 4 Best Buy stores with hardware provided through, plus a 2D version is also showing at an additional 330 stores.
Stuart Cupit, Managing Director of Inition said: ''This innovative in-store campaign for LG demonstrates the Smartphone’s functionality and 3D feature set using the breathtaking visual experience of modern glasses-free screen technology. We were delighted to work on the project which drew on Inition’s full range of 3D expertise from technical consultancy and hardware supply, to live action stereoscopic production, CGI and post.''

Gillette chooses Alioscopy in Italy for the launch of Gillette Fusion ProGlide
Naked-eye 3D now conquers advertising! The true revolution in digital signage is done in 3D… without glasses!
Gillette relies on Media3 for its new in-store promotional campaign. Three-dimensional images of a razor entering and popping out of the screen, an audience engaged and fascinated by such a realistic vision… without the need to wear glasses. This is not science fiction. Since beginning of July, this innovative technology can be admired in several shopping malls and perfumeries throughout Italy.
This is a real ''premiere'' for the Italian digital signage market. The promotional campaign of the Gillette Fusion ProGlide is a new approach to three-dimensional communication in Out-Of-Home advertising.
Since the screen is the one ''wearing'' glasses, viewers can enjoy the 3D content instantly. This spectacular way of communicating is a great way to engage passers-by and to grab their attention with unprecedented freedom and usability. The power of the naked eye 3D lies in its ability to entertain the viewer with unprecedented pop-out and depth effects, with great visual comfort and a level of detail impossible to achieve using traditional media.
The one minute and forty seconds 3D video was created and produced by Media3, a company specializing since 2007 in auto-stereoscopic 3D communication (AS3D) and distributing 3D displays from French company Alioscopy®. The campain was managed by BBoard Communications who supported the launch of Gillette Fusion ProGlide with the conception and management at creative and strategic level of a mall floor, with design, high impact point-of-sale displays. The 3D video is enshrined within a razor-shaped Floor Standing Display Unit. And it benefits from highly innovative and technological atmosphere of the event.
The 3D video will be shown in 10 shopping malls during the month of July and at six major Limoni a Gardenia perfumeries.
