In today's digital age, technology continues to push the boundaries of what we once considered possible. As companies strive for more interactive and engaging experiences, the concept of immersive spaces and immersive rooms has emerged as a revolutionary approach to captivate our senses and transport us into new realms. At Igloo, we are global leaders in immersive spaces, and can equip any room with our immersive technology.

At its core, an immersive space refers to a virtual or physical environment that surrounds the user, creating a sense of presence and deep engagement. An Igloo immersive room is powered by Igloo Core Engine (ICE), our software platform that can turn any space into an immersive space

ICE enables you to operate and use these spaces, no matter what the size, shape or configuration, leading to better decision making, saved time and money, decreased risks, improved processes and increased efficiencies.

Immersive rooms come in all shapes and sizes, such as a traditional style meeting room, a 360-degree cylinder, an open-fronted cylinder, a CAVE, a cube, an LED display and more. Here at Igloo Vision, our immersive rooms can display a range of content types, such as 360-degree videos, images, building information models, simulation training applications and more to immerse users in a different environments, shutting out the physical world. Users can be transported to a space that can replicate real-world locations or create entirely fantastical realms.

Now you know what an immersive space is, you’re probably wondering what a 360-degree immersive room can be used for and how it can revolutionise your business. There are many applications depending on your industry:

  • Architecture and Design: Immersive spaces allow architects and designers to visualise and experience their creations before they are built. By immersing clients in virtual environments, they can assess spatial arrangements, material choices, and lighting conditions, providing a more accurate representation of the final product.
  • Education and Training: Immersive spaces offer tremendous potential in education and training. Students can explore historical events, travel to distant locations, or delve into complex scientific concepts through interactive and immersive simulations. Similarly, professionals can undergo realistic training scenarios in fields like medicine, aviation, and emergency response, improving their skills and decision-making abilities.
  • Collaboration and Communication: Immersive spaces break down geographical barriers, enabling remote collaboration and communication. Teams can gather in virtual environments, share and manipulate 3D models, and interact as if they were physically present, fostering enhanced creativity, productivity, and innovation.
  • Energy: Immersive spaces are used by many energy companies to get inside their digital twins, engage stakeholders and save valuable time and money on projects. They've proven crucial for training exercises where it's too costly or dangerous to get staff to site.

As technology continues to advance, the potential for immersive spaces is boundless. With the advent of 5G networks, the metaverse, improved display technologies, and more compact and affordable devices, the barriers to entry for immersive experiences are gradually diminishing, and we want to help you find the best immersive solution for you.
