Leading Personalized Avatar-generator and Library of Creative Assets for Game and Virtual World Development; New EULA Makes Renowned Figures and Content Available to Developers
Draper, Utah – March 3, 2010 – On the heels of a successful merger, DAZ 3D-Gizmoz today unveiled Digimi, the ultimate platform for generating personalized avatars. Leveraging the collaboration of existing technologies from DAZ 3D and Gizmoz, Digimi offers a premier solution for complete avatar customization that extends creative possibilities toward developers of games, online worlds and real-time environments.
“As the gaming market continues to grow, so does the need for customization, differentiation and quality,” explains DAZ 3D-Gizmoz President, Eyal Gever. “This is exactly what Digimi will offer: the foremost platform for creation supported by the best human figure content library available in the marketplace. As we continue to roll out new tools, we have no doubt that Digimi will become synonymous with realistic and personalized avatar generation.”
Addressing game developers’ growing demand for high-quality 3D content, DAZ 3D-Gizmoz has also launched a new End-user License Agreement (EULA) which provides developer distribution licensing for their renowned collection of versatile 3D figures and assets. Available today, this new EULA and developer catalog allows DAZ 3D-Gizmoz models and user-generated content to be customized and distributed directly within cross-platform games, virtual worlds, social communities and MMOs.
Companies and influencers throughout the game development industry are already realizing the impact of Digimi. “Unity is committed to work alongside innovative companies to help achieve our goal to continually advance game development tools and processes,” said CEO of Unity Technologies, David Helgason. “DAZ 3D–Gizmoz offers an ideal solution for this advancement. The combination of the Digimi avatar generator and content catalog with the Unity platform allows developers to produce visually stunning results more quickly, easily and cost effectively.”
Digimi offerings will be available for demonstration during the 2010 Game Developers Conference at the Unity Technologies booth #1112. The entire developer content catalog will be previewed at the DAZ 3D-Gizmoz booth #934. For more information, please visit www.digimi.com.
