MONTREAL, May 8, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - Huit Development, a subsidiary of AXXYS Group, in collaboration with Mrs. Kora Van den Bulcke, President and cofounder of Immersive Design Studios, as well as Mrs. Debby Doktorczyk and Mr. Patrice Groleau, co-owners of McGill Real Estate, unveiled this morning, for the first time in North America, a virtual reality system which represents a true revolution in real estate. Developed by Immersive Design Studios, the CANVAS platform supports the immersive experiential technology in order to offer a spectacular virtual experience to future Quebec residential property buyers.
This Canadian-designed virtual reality system was unveiled at Huit Development's new Montreal real estate project called Charlotte Condos Société, in Griffintown.
CANVAS, the interactive multimedia system allows buyers to freely move around in space and interact in their environment as though they were really there, all at a touch of a button on a tablet. This platform requires no special goggles, nor a helmet to experience the real deal. The 3D environments are presented in actual size on a 5 to 13 meter long giant screen. The client draws the full effect of a virtually reality tour by visiting all the rooms of his or her future condo and even visualizing different finishing options (flooring, kitchens, bathrooms, furniture) according to their taste. The visitor can even discover the building's common areas, have exchanges with the greeter in the lobby and even see him or herself in the mirrors of his/her future condo! The level of unequaled realism and dynamism allows for the most convincing personalized visits.
"We are extremely proud to be the first to adopt this technology in North America, with Mumbai being the other city which has access to this revolutionary system for residential real estate. McGill Real Estate has exclusivity of the CANVAS system in Quebec for its clientele of developers, which will allow them to remarkably stand out in the industry and retain their market leading position. This major innovation is also consistent with our determination to remain at the cutting-edge of technology and put our clients first," declared Debby Doktorczyk, owner and President of McGill Real Estate.
"The CANVAS system is also used before games at the Bell Centre in Montreal, as well as at the Rogers Centre in Vancouver and we are currently working on establishing large-scale projects in Montreal, Halifax, Vancouver, New York and Miami. We strongly believe that the usage of the CANVAS platform will be a huge asset for McGill Real Estate and will allow them to offer an unparalleled experience to their clientele," added Kora Van den Bulcke, President and cofounder of Immersive Design Studios.
CANVAS holds the world record for the most pixels on a real-time 3D screen for the world giant graphical card inventor NVIDIA at the prestigious Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in 2017.
