In order to improve the technology innovation ability of small and medium sized enterprises, to lower their manufacturing costs and to enhance their manufacturing level and product quality, Xiamen Municipal Government invests to build three technology platforms in the park area, i.e. digital media technology service platform, public technology service platform and Cisco innovation experience center. These platforms will strongly support and ensure the information industry development of Xiamen City.
I. Public technology platform
1. Digital media technology service platform
At present, the animation，cartoon and game industry of Xiamen is still not strong enough. Some small enterprises can hardly invest much money to build such systems as motion capture, three-dimensional scan modeling and cluster rendering system. However, they need to go to other cities to realize high-level fabrication,, which costs a lot and is inefficient. The digital media technology service platform provides various supporting services such as three-dimensional scan modeling, action capture and cluster rendering, which are greatly needed by animation, cartoon and game enterprises.
The digital media technology service platform mainly includes the following six sectors: motion capture system, multi-media three-dimensional display hall, three-dimensional scanning and digital modeling system, cluster rendering calculation system, audio integration system and production center.
2. Public technology support and service platform
The public technology support and service platform is an expandable and open technology support platform, and it includes various mainstream software tools. It can provide software enterprises with a series of public services including practical training service, software outsourcing service, standard development platform supporting service, standard evaluation platform supporting service, product promotion and service support, project subcontracting and coordinating development support, and resource share of subject laboratories. This platform consists of the following modules: 1. park portal; 2. software resource bank; 3. platform of the practical training base management; 4. software outsourcing export platform; 5. standard public software evaluation platform; 6. standard public development platform; 7. system operation and maintenance management platform.
3. Xiamen Cisco Innovation Experience Center
The experience center has established a TelePresence system (high fidelity video conference system) and a uniform communication system at the early stage. The TelePresence conference system, i.e. Cisco TelePresence is a high-definition and operationally convenient high fidelity video conference system established based on the intelligent IP network. It can transmit and reproduce realities and consequently give people in any place of the world or in any environment a very realistic and unique communication experience. With a uniform communication system, Cisco provides various clients with intelligent telephone applications as well as a comprehensive multimedia interface, integrating audio, video, web conference and network testing. It can therefore satisfy the needs of SMB and medium market organizations.
