FARO Introduces VR-Enabled FARO ZONE 3D 2018: New Virtual Reality Capabilities for Forensics and Security Planning

Published: Wednesday, March 28, 2018 - 09:41

(FARO: Lake Mary, FL) -- FARO (NASDAQ:FARO), the world’s most trusted source for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for factory metrology and public safety forensics, announces the availability of the next generation of the FARO Zone 3D software platform (https://www.faro.com/products/public-safety-forensics/faro-zone-3d/), FARO Zone 3D 2018. The FARO Zone 3D platform is specifically designed to enable investigators and security professionals to enhance the quality of site and evidence capture, documentation, reconstruction, and analysis, for crime, crash, fire, and security applications.

FARO Zone 3D 2018 is the first VR-enabled software solution for law enforcement and forensics professionals that provides a comprehensive platform for documenting, analyzing, and reconstructing scenes that includes powerful forensic analysis, 3D diagramming, and animation tools.

Additionally, with integrated virtual reality, FARO Zone 3D 2018 enables a completely immersive first-person environment. Users can now revisit and walk through the scene, analyze the events leading up to the scene, and create full animated reconstructions of the scene just as if they were there when it happened.

Virtual Reality Analysis
• Build a repository of training scenarios by turning every scene into a real-world training environment

Visual Impact
• Create stunning diagrams and animations with new smoke, fire, and explosion animations, shadows, moving wheels, and trailer articulation
• Create dynamic videos with Total View, a unique presentation tool for fly-throughs and walk-throughs of scenes that are ideal for courtroom presentations, classroom training, and security debriefings

Advanced Smart Tools
• Dramatically increase productivity with the enhanced Blood Spatter Analysis Smart Tool that detects edges of blood droplets and automatically creates trajectory lines through FARO Zone 3D’s artificial intelligence engine
• Automatically generate courtroom ready reports detailing each trajectory with the enhanced Bullet Trajectory Smart Tool that makes bullet trajectory analysis easier than ever, now featuring elliptical trajectory cones and the ability to extend trajectory lines beyond the plane of impact

Extensive Training Support
• Optimize the beneficial use and return on investment of FARO Zone 3D through unlimited access to live instructor-led online training as well as self-paced training modules through the FARO Academy learning management system

Sharing and Collaboration
• Easily share 2D, 3D, and 3D point cloud scenes and videos in the courtroom, across the street, or around the world with the new free, stand-alone, FARO Zone Viewer application

“FARO Zone 3D represents another step forward in our focus to create complete solutions for investigators in the crime, crash, fire, and security markets,” states Jeff Ruiz, FARO’s vice president of public safety forensics. “Integrated virtual reality makes investigators’ analysis more powerful, more persuasive, and more real than ever.”
