April 1, 2019 PORTLAND, Oregon - Virtrium LLC today announced the completed development of their ASK-E Technology and subsequent patent approval.

This advanced rendering technology allows near unlimited definition in virtual worlds by stringing together multiple World Object Realization Device components within the ASK-E platform. The more definition that is needed, the more components can be used. By utilizing a natural language syntax and the power of ultra parallel parsing, massively vast worlds can be traversed without the problems typical technical solutions employ.

When asked about this groundbreaking technology, President and CEO of Virtrium, Rick Simmons replied, "We’ve been looking for a way to provide the next generation of fidelity and storytelling detail that we want for Istaria. By fully utilizing the ASK-E platform, we can represent our virtual world with unlimited detail. There is literally no limit to what can be described. We feel that as climate change leads to government policy changes that impact the ability of people to travel in the real world, there will be an ever increasing demand for virtual worlds of unprecedented fidelity. The opportunity for other virtual worlds is near limitless."

By proving the ASK-E technology with an existing virtual world product, the technology was hardened and demonstrated to be market ready. As a platform for virtual worlds, the limit to virtual worlds is only in the details described within those virtual worlds. For parties interested in being first to market with this revolutionary technology, please contact j_gutenberg@virtrium.com for licensing opportunities.
