Services

From concept to implementation, we collaborate with our clients to help develop effective immersive displays, interactive content and user interfaces.

Display Design

We work in diverse contexts with project teams including artists, architects, designers, engineers, educators and producers, ensuring that technologies communicate correctly and work together flawlessly. Our design process includes consulting, systems analysis, and integration.

Interactive Application Development

Our custom applications use technologies developed for interactive gaming, digital cinema, and multimedia performance. By taking advantage of advances in real-time computing capabilities, it's possible to render and control material in real-time for audience interaction, live performance, concept development, or accelerated post-production. Whether for linear/interactive 3D visualization, stereoscopic live capture playback, live performances, lighting systems, or installations, we tailor our existing applications and code base for each project.

Content Design

The novelty of the technology is never as important as the quality of the content. We help clients blend technology and aesthetics to leverage their content assets within the virtual environment. Our obsession with keeping current on surround imaging and production techniques means we can help design the right combination of off-the-shelf hardware and open source or commercial software. And if a tool doesn't exist to help realize a specific vision, we'll develop it.

In addition to custom optics, we work with a broad range of manufacturers and fabricators to develop the following:

  • Inflatable and hard shell domes
  • Configurable projector mounts
  • Projection screens and frames
  • Equipment housing

Systems Integration

Projects are only as good as they are useful and attractive. Our primary integration goal is to develop systems that are easy to operate and blend seamlessly into their environments. Our extensive experience in display, theater, and automation design and installation helps us pull together all the pieces of the puzzle.
