Many companies make use of established software applications that have been developed over the years and hold a proven track record. Little use is made, however, of possibilities offered by today’s computer graphics, and these are far from exhausted.

An immersive interface with interactive stereographics offers the opportunity to connect the two: continued use of the proven system and the exploitation of new technical possibilities in design and planning.

We support companies in the preparation and implementation of such projects, thanks to our 15 years’ experience in immersive real-time computer graphics. Together with the customer, we define the interface to the existing solution and specify what functions the 3-D interface must provide, or which make practical sense. Our team then makes the necessary technology components available for the visualization. In addition, the companies are also given support during the implementation and validation, or the usability tests.
