Immerse yourself in any scenario

With Igloo, you can immerse entire teams in the centre of any situation.

With wrap-around sound and vision, you can re-create realistic scenarios.
And, thanks to the flexibility of our technology, you can usually port your existing image generators, simulation software or training assets direct to the Igloo platform

Engaging, entertaining, instructive and inclusive

Our clients tell us that Igloo is:

  • Far more effective and engaging than any flat-screen, desk-bound equivalent
  • Compared to VR headsets, it’s a collaborative environment
  • Entire teams can discuss and interact at the centre of the scenario
  • You can reduce the need for physical visits to hazardous or faraway sites
  • Simulated training scenarios are easily repeatable and far more cost-effective than real-life equivalents

Talk to us about how you could use Igloo for

  • Training

  • Education

  • Health and safety campaigns

  • Risk assessments

  • Virtual site visits

  • Skills and aptitude assessments

  • Site familiarisations

  • Normal Operating Procedure (NOP) and Emergency Operating Procedure (EOP) simulations

Business benefits

Reduce costs
Avoid expensive real-life training scenarios or trips to faraway locations

Increase engagement
Authentic experiences are effectively re-created

Improve monitoring and compliance
All sessions can be recorded and archived

Enhance collaboration
Entire teams can interact with any scenario

Improve safety
A risk-free way to experience hazardous situations

But, don’t take our word for it. A wide range of academic research and industry case studies have confirmed that immersive virtual environments (IVEs) like Igloo can:

  • Improve team interaction
  • Increase and sustain the motivation to learn
  • Increase peripheral awareness
  • Enhance spatial understanding
  • Reduce information clutter
  • Be beneficial for different types of learning

An open platform to run all your existing simulation content – and enhance it

Many existing simulation systems are Igloo-ready – or can be easily adapted to run on the Igloo platform.

And, thanks to the flexibility of the layer-based Igloo player, we can work with you to enhance your existing content. For example, we have worked with some clients to create interactive visual scenarios for their existing process simulators. We have also worked with client to link their content to Google Street View data.

 

 

 

Draw on a world of Igloo experience

We have worked with clients worldwide on immersive simulation initiatives:

“The flexibility, dynamic deployment and low cost nature of Igloo was an immediate attraction.  The rapid repurposing of content such as 3D Unity demonstrations, high definition 360 images and existing video made it even more attractive”

Joe Little, BP Technology Officer

“It will really help the incident commanders think about their situational awareness, they really need to be able to see what's going on all the way around them”

Helen Tooley,
Group Manager of Strategic Development,
Fire Service College

Do more than before,

better than before, more easily than before

Once clients get a feel for the flexibility of the Igloo technology, many are keen to explore its full potential. And our in-house development team can show you what is possible.

So, for example, we have worked with some clients to integrate head-tracking, motion-tracking, gesture control and stereoscopic 3D capabilities.

We have also worked with clients to incorporate real-life tools – like vehicles, personal protective equipment (PPE) communications devices, handheld devices and, in the case of military simulations, armoured vehicles and weaponry.
