Photoreal 3D avatars and real-time rendering have become hot topics of chatter among the 3D industry and SIGGRAPH 2018 is no exception, with a big focus on this year’s SIGGRAPH Real-Time Live event. And to those who have been living on a stranded island and are wondering why this matters, remember that SIGGRAPH is the biggest gathering of professionals associated with the field of computer graphics.
GeminID is excited to be part of this movement with the release of an accessible technology for realistic animated 3D avatars from a single image or video:
Anyone can now give their users the opportunity to create and display their personal Digital Doubles in any virtual world, from VR to 3D chats, video games or mobile apps!
3D avatars were always a point of focus for the team. The project was initiated from two parent companies: EISKO, an award winning company and regular participant of the SIGGRAPH conference, specialized in lifelike Digital Doubles for VFX & real-time interactive applications, as well as CYDOLIA, specialized in Computer Vision for the cosmetics industry. Both have been pioneers in the analysis and simulation of the human figure for large scale productions, though we always wanted to democratize these technologies. GeminID was a result of this vision: making real-time photoreal 3D avatars more accessible, affordable and user friendly without compromising the quality.
Access to the GeminID technology is free. Creators only pay for what they use, allowing anyone to start off with a free plan and scale up as their user base grows. They can either make a one-time purchase of a small amount of 3D Avatar Generations to test their project in a closed environment, or choose an automatic renewal or upgrade to make sure they never run out once they go live. Should you decide to put the project on hold or face a sudden spike in downloads, GeminID will adapt itself. Our pricing model is designed to allow anyone to try it out, no matter your budget or ambitions.

With SIGGRAPH 2018 around the corner, the teams from Eisko and Cydolia are thrilled to announce the release of GeminID, a new solution enabling any developer and software company to generate and integrate the 3D Digital Double of their users from a single selfie or video!
GeminID is a plug & play solution accessible through:
GeminID photoreal avatars are PBR ready and benefit from a powerful in-house shading as well as a flexible facial rig based on years of research and development in the field of digital doubles.

Thanks to GeminID, we aim to revolutionize the user experience by enabling mass personalization. Developers are provided with a user management system while the GeminID platform guarantees the safe storage of their user’s Digital Doubles, who can in turn use their 3D avatar across multiple services through one single account.
