APAC: d3 Technologies has concluded a four-part tour of Asia Pacific in a bid to strengthen its ties with the resellers, industry influencers and professionals in the region. The tour comprised user visits, academic visits to several universities and d3 certified training, as well as the introduction of a new regional sales manager, Stephen Tsui.
This was Mr Tsui’s first opportunity to travel throughout the region since joining the company. He possesses 19 years of sales experience in the telecommunications and media sectors. A graduate from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a BS degree in computer science, Mr Tsui has held regional sales positions at the likes of ContentWise, Minerva Networks and Viaccess-Orca.
Hank Liu, technical manager of d3 reseller Redline Technology Beijing Co Ltd received d3 trainer certification as the manufacturer stopped by. He is now a d3 trainer for the China market. ‘It is an honour to truly become part of the d3 trainer community, which consists of leading industry experts and professionals,’ said Mr Liu. ‘The certified training is a recognition of my professional level and capability to nurture and educate the market, which also is our main responsibility as resellers. As you can see, the whole industry is thirsty for good talent.’
‘A two-day session let us feel Hank’s passion for the technology and the industry,’ noted Lai Weijian, technical manager of E-GO Computer Graphics and d3 trainee. ‘The interactive demonstration of d3, the BlackTrax tracking system and the Notch real-time workflow was the highlight of the training. It showed us even more possibilities for applications and effective delivery. We are looking forward to future diversity and innovation from d3.’
The d3 team also made stops at the Academy of Arts and Design at Tsinghua University, the National Academy of Chinese Theatre Arts and the Central Academy of Drama in Beijing, as well as Hong Kong’s Academy for Performing Arts. Presentations at these institutions focused on technologies currently in development, such as camera-based projector calibration, generative content, tracking, collaboration and visualisation, while projects in which d3 played a key creative role were also showcased.
‘d3’s visit and presentation brought a visual feast to our teachers and students and delivered the latest in contemporary visual creativity and stage arts,’ recalled Fu Haoyue, department head of the digital space design faculty at Jilin College of the Arts. ‘It provided constructive comments for our Digital Space Design faculty, making the digital space teaching and scientific level reach a new height, while building a solid foundation for the next step in our cooperation.’
The tour concluded with visits to key users in the region. Stops were made at N Dimensions Media and Yuning Brothers in Beijing, Huelead, AV Promotion and Hibino in Shanghai, and Ptarmigan in Hong Kong. These visits enabled the d3 team to learn from user experiences and to gain feedback.
