About Us
BACKGROUND
3Q's technology was first launched into the demanding healthcare market. Not only were high precision 3D surface images needed for patient examination and assessment, 3Q had to develop an innovative imaging technique that would keep patient anxiety to a minimum and ensure reliability and ease-of-use for the doctor. As a result, the underlying technology was developed with a capture speed of ~1.5 milliseconds, while processing takes just seconds.

Today, 3Q's innovation, through its 3dMD sister company, is being used by clinical centers of excellence around the world. With approximately 125 3D system customers, our technology actively supports specialties such as paediatric care (helping children with facial defects), cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, and burns and wounds treatment. This concentrated focus has enabled us to build an extensive knowledge base surrounding the human form, including anatomy, skin characteristics and feature landmarking.

And with this knowledge base, 3Q launched the QloneratorPRO Series to improve the economics and quality standards for multimedia professionals. The system is designed for those professionals who want to incorporate realistic-looking 3D characters into their production, but don't want to have their creative people tied down cleaning up the images. Also with the systems unprecedented speed, multimedia professionals will be able achieve capture times of up to sixty frames a second, thus generating a sequence of true 3D movement.
