ASTi's Voisus audio and communications product is built with serious games in mind, and this year's I/ITSEC is the perfect place to see it in action. We have a number of serious-game-related things on tap:

  1. We will be demonstrating Voisus integration with VBS2 and CryEngine at our booth (#1149). The mock mission will feature a fully networked comms environment for all our demo stations, including convoy and TOCNET simulations, as well as a JTAC-style call for fire training scenario.

  2. ASTi is the Silver sponsor for this year's Serious Games Showcase & Challenge as well as the Peoples' Choice Award sponsor.

  3. ASTi's own Ross Kukulinski boasts a notable pedigree when it comes to serious games in the Training & Simulation industry. He has spoken on serious games and emerging technology at industry and technical conferences such as the Defense Gametech Users Conference, Serious Play Conference, and NTSA M&S Multi-Con. This year at I/ITSEC, Ross will be presenting a tutorial titled "Serious Communication for Serious Games" on Monday, December 3, 2012 from 12:45pm to 2:15pm. It's free and open to all I/ITSEC attendees. Download info about all I/ITSEC tutorials; Ross' is Track 8, tutorial #1259.
