activ8-3D are proud to announce that their close partners and friends, AnimaLive, have received the Best New Product Award at the annual IAAPA conference and expo. The motion capture system, which activ8-3D use to create interactive 3D hologram characters, was the star of the show, taking home of the coveted award.

This system works with an actor wearing a motion capture suit. The actor uses the suit to control the movements of a 3D character on stage. The actor can see and heard the audience via a hidden camera and microphone. The actor can also speak to the audience via an audio system. Displaying these characters on activ8-3D's holographic projection displays creates audience interaction like never before. Audience members are blown away at the fact that they can hold a conversation with a giant 3D holographic character in stage.
