Makemedia set out to create an immersive training facility, powered by ImmersaView SimVisuals

Makemedia is full service digital media agency specializing in creating 3D projects for commercial sectors including aerospace, energy, agriculture, infrastructure, office design, components, hospitality, publishing and entertainment. They set out to design and create the technical setup for a Master Builders training facility, implementing a large 180 degree curved display, immersing users in an interactive training environment. The display surface was powered by ImmersaView SimVisuals, allowing three projectors to be painlessly and seamlessly warped into a single geometrically correct surface.

The Challenge

To create a training space that immerses users with industry leading 3D content and simulation technology

A recent challenge for Makemedia was to design and create industry leading 3D content and technical set up for a facility that will provide innovative training using state-of-the-art simulation technology and bespoke real-time VR environments for the Master Builders’ Building Leadership Simulation Centre (BLSC) in Melbourne, Australia. This required an immersive, interactive learning environment combining digital technology and human aspects to construct a virtual workplace, where trainees will tackle real-life problems with a very high degree of realism.

The Solution

Powered by SimVisuals, Makemedia were able to create a seamless 180 degree simulation environment

Makemedia engaged ImmersaView to provide a full turn-key solution, including optical design, projector selection, project management and installation services. A virtual construction site was creating using high-definition projectors to seamlessly project bespoke content on to a 15m wide 180° curved screen, using ImmersaView’s SimVisuals software to merge 3D content generated from a PC Cluster. The combinations of the immersive display, replica site sheds, and a team of trained actors create a life- like experience. This enables learners to experience ‘real life’ scenarios off-site and in a safe environment.
