March 6-9, 2012 VIZERRA took part at MIPIM 2012 in Cannes, France, joining the booth of the “Skolkovo” foundation. Our CEO Arman Gukasyan and City Chief Architect of the Skolkovo Anna Turgeneva spoke at the press room and show an interactive 3D model of Skolkovo Innovative City (Russian Silicon Valley).
So far, the model has been successfully used for presentation of the concept of future innovation city during several public and private events, including the Urban Development Board of the "Skolkovo" Foundation December 2, 2011.
This year's the model has become a working tool for architects and decision makers. Various options for designing and integrating the best ideas are studied in detail on the basis of the model, giving the opportunity to observe the dynamics of the ongoing development of the territory.

The latest video games feature gorgeous graphics and blazing fast speeds but architectural design software is painfully slow to navigate and even slower to render. Why the difference – especially since architects and game designers both create virtual worlds?
VIMtrek is answering that question by bridging the gap between gaming software and architectural rendering programs. Using the backbone of cutting-edge game engine technology, the VIMtrek Producer application is able to rapidly convert Autodesk Revit® designs into immersive, beautifully rendered, and interactive environments, and then share these locally or over the Internet.

Creative Director of Vizerra Alex Soloviev, CEO Arman Gukasyan and CTO Oleg Maddox
Please tell us a little about yourself. What projects did you work on before Vizerra?
Until 1991 I was developing in the defense industry. Then I left the institute and in late 1992 I created my own team. Over 40 large and small multimedia and gaming projects has been developed and implemented under my leadership. Almost all the projects were successful and some have become global hits. Of course, the most well-known to the mass audience was a series of flight simulators under the general title of IL-2 Sturmovik.

Time has passed very quickly since the previous release of the Vizerra Client application which took place on April 30, 2010. However, during this time our team did productive and hard work to present you a new version of the client application – Vizerra Client 2.1.
One of the most important changes is fixing of all bugs which our beta testers actively told us about for the last 2 months. “Flying” trees and possibilities to dive through the collisions in the parallel world like all other mystics are available no more.

Vizerra world differs from the real world, and in some places one still can notice how it works. And by the way: how does it work?
What did the ancient people know about the world? That the world is probably flat and is located in the center of the universe. That the world does not collapse, as it is resting on the back of a huge animal, or rocking on the endless waters of the ocean. That the world has its Creator, and its existence makes superrational sense unfathomable for the mere mortals.
With the centuries going by, the world was growing, acquiring a spherical shape, and suddenly became just one of many worlds in the universe. But the Vizerra 3D world is still very young and therefore still resembles Earth in the way that people have seen it for many years before.
