About

OHZONE Inc

The OHZONE Inc brings gorgeous 3DREAL™ garments to life while lowering the barrier of entry for fashion brands aiming to create a genuine interactive customer experience in a self-contained virtual environment. The OHZONE Inc.’s patented technology provides high-fidelity, exquisitely-detailed 3DREAL™ models from real garments in zoomable, rotatable images for 3D e-commerce, VR/AR, and marketing. The company provides a turnkey 3D digitization solution (creating, hosting, and housing) to help B2B and B2C brands build trust for their online presence and sales. 

Background

Ohzone was started by two highly skilled 3D computer graphics experts from Nvidia and Zoran/Oak Technology. Oh Tepmongkol, the founder, was having difficulty shopping online with her daughter. The images and ability to look at clothing lacked the detail she desired in 2D imagery. Oh took it upon herself to look into how to create a better experience. She discovered she could combine her skills in 3D algorithms with her love for fashion and shopping. She pulled in her friend Kevin, and they went to work. They learned that it is fairly straightforward technologically to capture hard goods such as shoes and handbags, but the folds, drape, and texture of clothing required a combination of programmatic skills and a passion for fashion and textiles to make it work. They built a 3D platform to test their idea and hyper-focused their efforts on soft goods to ensure that details and lighting would be exquisitely executed and experienced. As part of this process, they procured two patents and have two additional patents pending for their algorithmic work in 3D technology and virtual try-on. They brought on the rest of the team after perfecting their technological solutions. Today, The Ohzone, is a fully operational company with a team and technology to bring 3D fashion to life.
