Next-Gen Designing: HP Z 3D Camera
Created for CG artists, 3D designers, game developers and digital fine artists, the HP Z 3D Camera reinvents creative workflows by bringing the Sprout by HP experience to the PC. The new camera allows for richer, more immediate remote live sharing by putting the desk, hands, and more into view. With easy-to-download tracking and scanning software, it constructs 3D models in real time. Workflows are enhanced by scanning objects with computer-graphics-friendly resolutions that maintain separate texture maps for physical-based rendering and AR, VR and mixed reality content creation.
“The demand for 3D content has skyrocketed, and 3D pros are constantly looking for new hardware and software innovations,” said HP’s Louis Kim, global head of Immersive Computing, Personal Systems to Tom’s Hardware. “The HP Z 3D Camera helps speed up modeling, reinvent the creative palette and protect the artistic point of view. . .”
The HP Z 3D Camera is planned to be available in the US only in March 2018 for $599.
