Because we are an open platform, you can put any content you like in an Igloo.
If you already have 360° or VR content, it’s likely to be Igloo-ready (and, in an Igloo, you can share the experience). You can also import all of your CGI, CAD and BIM content. And, because Igloo is a layer-based system, we can integrate several different formats, from several different sources, all in real-time.
Almost everyone is surprised by what our technology can do – clients from the worlds of architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) sectors are particularly impressed by the way we can work with so many content types.
Get in touch to find out what’s possible.
Games engine content
360° film content
360° panorama content
Real-time generative content
POV video games
VJ live visuals
That’s the most important lesson we’ve learnt in Igloo’s 10+ years. So we always want to help you get your content just right.
For example, we can guide your creative teams. You can also call on our in-house content specialists. Alternatively, we can put you in touch with the 360° and VR content creators who we believe to be the very best in the business.

Even so, high quality content doesn’t come cheap. And we want to help you be sure your time and money are well spent. So, to help you on your way, and ensure you get the best possible Igloo experience, we can help in several ways:
To get you used to
To get a feel of how your content will look in an Igloo you can use our Oculus or Vive Igloo viewer, which can be configured to mimic any Igloo size and configuration.
We would always urge you to visit one of our permanent test
Ideally, the audio should be closely choreographed with the imagery (for example, if you want to draw the eye of the audience to a particular piece of the action, a sudden or unexpected sound is a great way to grab their attention).
So, for many content creators, the 360° is just as important as the 360° content. To give them the effects they’re looking for, we’ve worked with most surround sound configurations, such as 5.1, 10.2 and ambisonics. We’ve even partnered with high-end audio aficionados, Bowers and Wilkins, to take true hi-fi sound to huge festival venues in our 1,000-person capacity 21m Igloo.
As ever, we’re eager to share our experience and expertise.
So get in touch to talk about what’s possible with 360° sound.
For example, we have workflows to bring 3D models from all of your usual design tools directly into the Igloo. And, by taking your design concepts off the flat screen and into the round, you can easily run design reviews with colleagues, clients and other stakeholders.
So, for example, with games engine technologies, our Unity 3D and Unreal Engine camera plug-ins can capture your content and port it, in real-time, direct to the Igloo.
We also support a range of devices and techniques, like gesture control, to enable people to interact with your content – again in real-time.
And we can capture and display content of different formats and from different sources – like a powerpoint deck, a Prezi presentation, a webpage, or even a Skype call.
So, if you have games engine-based content that you want to see in an Igloo, get in touch.

Also, if you’re thinking of investing in a camera of your own, we’d advise you to steer clear of anything less than 4k. And we’d fully expect
Get in touch for our handy set of content creation guidelines. And, if you’re ever in any doubt, just drop us an email or pick up the phone.
If you are a content creator or developer, and you would like to join the growing Igloo community, we would love to hear from you.
Integrating your apps or seeing your real-time content in an Igloo is probably easier than you think.
Get in touch to discuss the possibilities.
Increasingly, clients are asking us, “Which content creators are Igloo-ready?”
We’ve got a growing list of these Igloo-ready content partners and, if you create great 360°, VR or 3D content, we’d like to add your company’s name to it.
So, please, get in touch to test your content on the Igloo platform – and become an Igloo-ready partner.
They tell us it’s a great environment to engage colleagues and impress clients. But it goes beyond appearances. Because an Igloo is also bristling with practical business tools.
For example, you can capture and display content of different formats and from different sources (like a powerpoint presentation, a webpage, project management tool or even a Skype call).
It’s another way that the flexibility of the Igloo platform brings practical benefits.
