An Igloo in every office and for every company

We can retrofit Igloo immersive technology into any existing room, irrespective of its size, shape, or dimensions.

Whatever you want on the walls, you can have it, thanks to our content-agnostic platform.

Work with the tools you already use, launch and run real-time applications, view websites in 360°, present and interrogate data, access your corporate Microsoft and Google suites, and much more.

Contact us to discover how we can retrofit your meeting room.

The anatomy of an immersive room

To retrofit Igloo technology into your existing rooms, we use a combination of Lidar scanning and artificial intelligence to map a room, create a bespoke projection template, specify the right projectors and projection points, and configure the Igloo Immersive Media Player.

Get in touch to find out how we can create a bespoke immersive room.

Controls

Intuitive control via a choice of wireless devices, and a customisable interface for simple content access

Glass windows, walls and doors

Any existing glass can be covered by a retractable, colour-matched blind

Sound system

5.1 immersive sound system, with the option to upgrade to a fully-spatialised system

The display

Typically, an array of 4-6 ultra-short-throw projectors, retracted into the ceiling

Versatility

Can be retrofitted into most meeting rooms, conference rooms and workspaces

Immersive Media Player

Housed in a nearby server room and fits within the envelope of the corporate IT network

A simple, scientific eight-step installation process

Using some ingenious tricks and tools (like Lidar scanning and AI-powered databases), we’ve largely automated and industrialised the installation process - making it all surprisingly quick and cost-effective:

Briefing

Igloo captures the details of your brief - including the location and nature of your spaces, and how you’re planning to use your immersive workspace

Scanning

Using a handheld laser scanning system, your rooms are surveyed using a combination of photogrammetry, canvas and sweep Lidar

Uploading

The scan data is uploaded to a secure portal

Modelling

The scan data is imported into the Igloo 3D modelling tool, which uses artificial intelligence to specify the optimum type and number of projectors and projection points (based on a set of attributes in a database)

Mapping

A low-poly model of the room and projector throws are sent to the Igloo Immersive Media Player - a designer then UV maps, adds lighting, and creates a room-specific UV template.

Virtual visualisation

A virtual visualisation of the room is sent for client sign-off (which you can view in an HMD or on your desktop using our Igloo Showroom app)

Installation

The installation team fits the pre-selected projectors in the pre-specified positions, and deploys the Igloo Immersive Media Player configured to the room-specific UV maps

Forever after

Igloo provides service and support (based on strict SLAs), as well as regular software updates, new apps, and new integrations. You’re also able to join our user group and wield a direct influence over our future roadmap

A research lab for Mid Sweden University

The University wanted to create an immersive space to carry out research into risk and crisis scenarios.

The only site available was an 8-metre x 8-metre room, and a standard Igloo cylinder or dome would compromise the floorspace.

So, we retrofitted the room with Igloo technology to turn it into an immersive room. 

A visualisation space for the University of Tromsø

We retrofitted a 7-metre x 10-metre room into an Igloo immersive workspace with floor projection, 3D projection and surround sound.

Every wall and floor can display immersive content to help users to better visualise and engage with their designs and data - with a strip along the middle to create a viewing and meeting platform.

If you have an existing space - a meeting room, office, whatever - you'd like to turn into an immersive workspace, just get in touch.
