3rdTech’s 3D Scene Scanner Featured on A&E’s Crime 360

DeltaSphere 3D Crime Scene Digitizer Produces 3D Model of Crime Scene  

Durham, N.C., March 10, 2008 – 3rdTech announced today that their DeltaSphere-3000 3D Scene Digitizer and SceneVision-3D Software were featured on the premier episode of A&E’s new reality crime show, Crime 360, which aired on March 6. The Del taSphere is a 3D laser scanner that quickly and accurately measures millions of points and takes hundreds of photographs of a crime scene. The captured data can be displayed as a photorealistic 3D computer graphics model and viewed from any perspective. Investigators in the show use the system to produce an accurate, color, computer graphics model of the suspect’s apartment. This 3D model is displayed and used to analyze the crime.

“The show’s developers were seeking the most advanced forensic products available”, said Nick England, President of 3rdTech. “We were happy to work with them and the Richmond Police Department to demonstrate our 3D products which are actively being used by more than a dozen law enforcement agencies.”

The DeltaSphere system combines 3D laser scanning with high-resolution color photography and was the first 3D scanner to produce photorealistic 3D models. SceneVision software was designed for law enforcement and provides measurement, analysis and display functions needed for documenting and analyzing crime scenes and preparing presentations for use in court. It is being used by sheriff’s offices, police departments and federal agencies around the U.S. and in several countries overseas. It has also been adopted for forensic training at several colleges and universities.
