ARSKAN is a young, innovative, French deep-tech company resulting from scientific research. ARSKAN is working on ambitious R&D programs to improve its technologies for compressing, transferring and displaying 3D meshes, without data loss and without constraints.

ARSKAN offers massive and complex 3D data visualization technologies for the web, accessible on all types of terminals (PC, smartphone and VR headsets), requiring very little server resources, hardware resources and low bandwidth consumption. ARSKAN’s visualization and transfer solutions are therefore economically viable and eco-friendly.

The technological solutions of ARSKAN are:

  • ARSKAN Codec (ACO), a progressive lossless compressor / decompressor of 3D meshes
  • ARSKAN MoveInside (AMI), a web viewer of 3D meshes and external data (IoT, AI, business applications, software, media…)
  • ARSKAN Silodata (ASD), an intelligent storage platform, with a system of rights and sharing, which provides access to AMI and ACO technologies

ARSKAN solutions can be integrated via CLI and packages, and are also accessible and testable in SAAS mode on an online demonstrator and via an API. With these products, ARSKAN offers a way to create real 3D digital twins, by making your data interactive, collaborative and connected to your own database.

Democratising technology – providing access to tools – has been our motivation since the Raspberry Pi project began. By driving down the cost of general-purpose computing to below $5, we’ve opened up the ability for anybody to use computers in projects that used to require prohibitive amounts of capital. Today, with barriers to entry being removed, we see Raspberry Pi computers being used everywhere from interactive museum exhibits and schools to national postal sorting offices and government call centers. Kitchen table businesses all over the world have been able to scale and find success in a way that just wasn’t possible in a world where integrating technology meant spending large sums on laptops and PCs.

StockGraphy is a company that develops 3D content technologies and viewers that operate on online platforms such as Metaverse and Web3D/AR/VR. In the development of a lightweight viewer with a high flexibility, we realized 3D visualization that works with EC and business systems. Our 3D content technologies are used in industries such as apparel / textile, cultural property protection, cosmetics, automobiles, and city planning. In addition, StockGraphy operates BEGIN3D.com, a media for 3D industrial use. BEGIN3D.com also sells 3D tools such as Reality Capture. StockGraphy is interested in OpenGL, WebGL, and glTF.

XEED, LLC specializes in portable motion analysis. XEED brings full-body human motion capture to a small size and a low price point previously thought impossible. The wearable devices are used in degenerative movement disorder studies by enabling therapists, physicians, and researchers to monitor exactly how their patients move throughout the day and provide them with personalized recommendations. The technology has also been used by US warfighters in a DARPA study to analyze the change in physical performance as it relates to infectious disease. XEED aims to bring full-body mocap to fields that are priced out of it or would otherwise be turned off by the bulkiness of existing solutions. By achieving unprecedented battery life and providing a completely wireless solution, the innovative wearables exceed limits and improve the way we interact with movement.
