Santa Clara, CA — Virtual reality innovators at 3DreamTeam dazzled DEMO conference attendees with 3D technology that brings the world’s most amazing heritage sites directly to your computer. The Cambodian temple of Angkor Wat is one of 20 initial projects for the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Sites.

The incredibly detailed Vizerra locations allow virtual visitors to walk through Angkor Wat 3D, along with Machu Picchu, Petra, Red Square, Swayambhunath Stupa, Stonehenge, the Taj Mahal and other sites.

Vizerra's Angkor Wat 3D model allows you to explore the entire site by air or on the ground.

In our 2009 article, “Virtual or Reality? 12 amazing 3D comparison photos of Angkor Wat”, side by side comparisons show the Vizerra reality almost identical to being at Angkor Wat. Since then, 3DreamTeam has continued refining their stunning Angkor Wat model using detailed photographs of devata (sacred female) portraits, surface textures and blueprints provided by Devata.org.

Vizerra's Angkor Wat 3D model includes devata (sacred female) images. The technology will soon allow links to location specific data and high resolution photos.

3DreamTeam is now working directly with NVIDIA, the leading developers of 3D hardware technology. Games and movies comprise most 3D content now available but 3DreamTeam is expanding consumer and educational applications with its Vizerra technology.
