The field of 3D imagery is now growing rapidly and influences sectors such as gaming, cinema, medicine, aeronautics and oil exploration. An increased focus on quality and realism has generated significant volumes of 3D data resulting in technical issues as regards storage, transmission and data handling. Today, the industry uses heavy-duty hardware that is energy- and cost-intensive, to process this data. In this context, the project focuses on solutions for compression, transmission and manipulation of 3D surface meshes (CAD, DCC, laser/photo scanners) and 3D volumetric imaging (seismic cubes medical/satellite imagery), oriented towards the markets for creating, sharing and visualising. These solutions are the result of public research (UNS/CNRS) that is both protected (patents and APP patenting) and also pre-burned using various maturing programmes.
