Optitex, a developer of integrated 2D CAD and 3D digital product solutions for the textile industry, has joined the IEEE Standards Association Initiative to collaborate, research and build technology standards for 3D body processing.

“As consumers seek more personalised shopping experiences, brands are seeking to incorporate 3D scanning, modeling and visualisation into their businesses to further enhance experience,” an Optitex press release said.

“This includes not only creating customised and tailor fitted garments, but also better products with improved 3D capabilities,” it added in the press release.

Optitex, has joined the initiative to help create standards to implement these technologies into the fashion industry and such standards will included privacy, communication, quality specifications, and sharing protocols.

"As a software provider in 3D virtual clothing, we are interested in pursuing standards in body processing technology to enable consistency and ensure quality during virtual clothing try-on sessions,” Rony Goldenthal, CTO at Optitex said.

“Working with IEEE will promote interoperability of virtual clothing and virtual bodies from different sources, and allow Optitex, as well as the other stakeholders, to focus on innovation in their respective areas of expertise," he too added.

According to the company, while there are still obstacles and more research to be done in the field of body scanning, Optitex is honoured to be part of the team pushing these standards forward.

It is also looking to create standards that will create better products and a more satisfied customer experience.

Optitex empowers apparel and soft goods companies to revolutionise the way they develop, produce, and market their products.

Optitex is the developer of an integrated 2D/3D software platform that enables customers to quickly create true-to-life 3D digital garments that inspire.

Brands, retailers, and manufacturers can now view their collections in all styles and colours months earlier, and leverage digital garments to collaborate, market, and sell better than ever before.

Since its founding in 1988, Optitex has worked to keep thousands of companies and tens of thousands of users at the forefront of technology, enabling them to greatly reduce their time to market and costs. (AR)
