Epson and Igloo Vision have come together to create a new immersive workspace, located at NMK Electronics’ showroom in Dubai, UAE. AV integrators and companies looking for transformative office technology can visit the immersive room which boasts floor projection and is powered by the Igloo Vision software suite and the latest in Epson projection technology.
The new workspace at NMK is the newest demo centre in the Middle East where Igloo technology can be experienced – for a wide range of applications by organisations around the world, including the likes of Accenture, SNC-Lavalin Atkins, bp, and over 50 universities. The workspace brings together a host of professional AV and communication equipment and offers a space for AV integrators to investigate the newest technologies.
The Igloo Elite software suite drives all the content within the space, including a wide array of everyday enterprise tools (including video conferencing integrations), and anything built using game engines such as Unity or Unreal. Igloo’s own immersive web browser also means teams can access and interact with any cloud-based or web content, such as online collaborative whiteboard or project management tools.
Teams can work with different kinds of content, in different formats, from different sources, all at the same time. Content can be shown in a seamless display, or tiled and layered to create custom dashboards, depending on the users’ needs. When working with immersive content such as 360degree videos, or Matterport scans, the Igloo software creates a seamless display that accounts for any edge or corners in the space, so that there is no distortion in the content.
“We’ve been working in the Middle East for several years now, but until now we didn’t have a permanent location for integrators to visit,” said Jake Rowland, head of business development EMEA at Igloo Vision. “So, we’re delighted to showcase our technology in partnership with Epson’s advanced projectors, at a hub of a technology like NMK’s showrooms. We already have a long list of integrators excited to learn how they can use this technology to create outstanding corporate installations for their clients.”
The immersive workspace features several of the newest Epson projectors, including the 10,000-lumen EB-PU2010B, with ELPLX02 ultra-short-throw lenses and ELPLU03 short-throw lenses, mounted using Peerless AV brackets. The projectors create a seamless, high-resolution, immersive display across three walls and the floor as well.
“Our dynamic collaboration once again with NMK Electronics has enabled them to create an immersive work environment with Epson’s solutions,” said Abdulnassir Ali, sales manager, display solutions, Epson Middle East. “Epson goes beyond the scope of immersive projection, ensuring high image quality in 360degrees. We have installed the compact yet versatile EB-PU2010B to deliver bright, true-to-life images, suitable for all types of environments. This solution has been paired with Epson’s other professional display products such as lenses and brackets for sharp, vivid imagery like no other.”
Alex Kemans, managing director at NMK Electronics added: “We are proud to be one of the few companies in the GCC to launch innovative top-of-the-line AV technology and introduce it into the local market, we have also have been fortunate enough to have partners such as Epson & Igloo who support our vision of elevating AV standards across the region, looking forward to hosting our clients and partners.”
