San Francisco Expansion Enables Donya Labs to Solidify its Market Leadership Position of Optimizing 3D Assets for Games, Animation, Graphics, CAD and Film
Linköping , Sweden - March 11, 2014 - Donya Labs, the leading provider of automatic 3D optimization solutions for digital content creation, today announced the establishment of its first North American office, located in San Francisco. The new office will expand Donya Labs’ sales, project management, and support capabilities in North America and enable the company to further establish itself in all digital 3D content creation industries in the Americas.
“This represents an important step in achieving our strategic goals, which are to ensure that our existing partners get the best possible service and support, and that we meet the increasing demand for 3D optimization in the Americas,” said Magnus Wennerholm, CEO of Donya Labs. “We already generate close to 50% of our revenues from North America and having an office in San Francisco gives us easy access to a massive talent pool and increased business that will support our growth.”
David Larsson, previously Principal Engineer at Autodesk, will anchor the San Francisco team where he will serve as Lead Sales Engineer for the Americas. The new office is located at 100 Montgomery St, Suite 1080, San Francisco, CA 94104, USA.
Simplygon enables its partners to get the most from their development process by automatically optimizing 3D-assets for animation, games, CAD and film. This provides customers with all the benefits of Level of Detail (LOD) models, but none of the usual drawbacks, such as time and resource-consuming manual work, increased production time, and higher development cost. In addition, Simplygon results in a higher and more consistent LOD quality, with LOD models available earlier and throughout the production chain, and more content being able to be shown on screen, which gives increased visual quality.

Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Sweden, Donya Labs is privately held and dedicated to helping professional software developers make complex 3D content available on all platforms while streamlining their production pipeline.

Unveiling at GDC San Francisco, GameSessions Partners with PCGamer.com, Ginx TV and PCGamesN.com
SHEFFIELD, England - March 11, 2014 – Announced last week, GameSessions, a new service giving players a chance to try full games first, with super-fast downloads based on new technology, and where publishers can choose what aspects of the games to highlight has its first partners. PCGamer.com, the world’s largest PC magazine site, with 5.3m unique visitors per month, GINX, the videogaming TV channel broadcasting to over 26 million television homes across Europe, and PCGamesN.com, a site dedicated to PC gaming with almost 1m unique visitors per month are the first media partners for GameSessions.
“We’re being very selective with potential partners and want to ensure that leading brands related to the PC Gaming audience are supported,” said Ed French, CEO of Tangentix Ltd. “We want GameSessions to be where the largest audience of core gamers is and our initial partners bring a collective audience in the 10’s of millions.”
“Future has always been keen on giving our readers the best possible view of games, and we’re really supportive of the way GameSessions will be allowing this to happen in a new way,” said Lee Nutter, Head of Games at Future plc.
GameSessions allows players to move from trial to purchase instantly, in game, without waiting for a disk to be delivered or a different version to be downloaded. The service is about to launch a public beta so everyone can see what the experience can offer. The company will be announcing an amazing line-up of partners in the coming weeks and months who are working with the team to bring great games to gamers everywhere.
Michiel Bakker, Ginx TV CEO, commented, “We see GameSessions as a great way to engage our viewers, offering them a quick and easy route to download and trial the titles that feature on the channel. We like how this service will link our online and broadcast communities.”
"Free to play shouldn't be the only way for PC gamers to try a game before investing any cash. Developers struggle for time to make meaningful demos. GameSessions solves both of these challenges,” said James Binns Managing Director of Network N Ltd. “PCGamesN.com is working with GameSessions because we want our audience to pick the best games to play and trial is a vital part of that decision."
GameSessions is from Tangentix Ltd, a team of keen and bright programmers, who also happen to be gamers, based in the UK. It has been born from new mathematics from the University of Bradford and a series of patent-backed innovations that change the way games are discovered, delivered and purchased. The company is venture backed and has deals with a number of major publishers and media partners.
