Visualisation company Holovis to hold technology showcase9 June 2014
Holovis is hosting a technology showcase event and conference at the Manufacturing Technology Centre in Coventry on 11 and 12 June. Visitors will be able to explore and experience the company’s full array of immersive and virtual reality environments – and learn how these solutions can be used to increase competitive advantage, boost operational efficiencies, enhance collaborative working and reduce programme development costs.
On display from the dome portfolio will be a 12m full dome featuring projectiondesign FL35 projectors and a 360° immersive dome simulator experience called MotionDome (pictured). This synchs subtle motion in the form of two driver simulators with the visuals, interactive technology and real time data input, creating a space where no two experiences are the same.
From the virtual reality realm, visitors can enter the Holovis designed MTC CAVE, a structure where all walls feature 3D volumetric content to immerse people into the virtual world, which they can explore in real-time using natural control interfaces. An Oculus Rift VR headset will also be on display; Holovis will demonstrate how this can be used in business environments as a marketing tool.
Behind the scenes, guests will be able to learn about the array of Holovis propriety technology driving the solutions including In-Mo, a real-time visualisation engine for displaying and interacting with CGI and data modelling.
Accompanying the showcase is a conference programme in which speakers will describe how these applications have transformed their working practice. These include Clive Hickman, chief executive of the Manufacturing Technology Centre and Brian Waterfield, VR manager at Jaguar Landrover.
Stuart Hetherington, CEO of Holovis commented: “This event is ideal for anyone in the manufacturing, design, automotive, attractions, construction and military industries looking to find the latest solutions for enhancing their design, R&D and collaborative working process, to seeing next generation technology for audience immersion, entertainment or corporate events.
“These new technologies can be deployed to accelerate and transform how value chains perform; creating a quality and intensity of collaborative learning that delivers significant new layers of business improvement and commercial impact.”
The event is free to attend and has been designed for decision makers from manufacturing design engineers to operational directors and managers, creative directors, virtual reality specialists, and strategists and technologists.
The programme will run from 10.00am until 4.00pm; a buffet lunch will be provided. Participants will be put into groups, which will then rotate through a set of different experiences.
