been a substantial shift over the past year from software app driven AR to hardware
supported solutions. AR technology is
now built into Apple and the big-name Android devices removing the requirement
for expensive app development. Augmented reality files can
now be embedded directly into a retailer’s product page just as any image or
video. AR gives the shopper an in-home
virtual reality experience without leaving the house avoiding a timely journey
to the shops and the need for any specialist headset or hardware.
This in-browser augmented reality option is cheap and easy
to implement. We simply create and
optimize a 3D file in an AR format for you to upload onto your existing
website. This allows the customer to
engage with the product from the comfort of their armchair.
A brilliant by-product of this format is that 360 degree
images appear on both new and older devices, including laptops and PCs for no
extra effort. The product won’t have the
full interactive AR benefits, but shoppers can still see a full 360 of the product.
If you’d like to find out more, please get in touch and we’d
be more than happy to show you a demo and discuss opportunities.

Set Visions Technical Director has invested in cutting edge, next generation server technology to maximise our team’s production output. We’ve expanded the capacity of our CGI virtualisation by putting 20 processing cores to good use. Our new storage array has been specifically designed for heavy access from multiple users while still providing strong resilience against hardware failure.
The team constantly keep ahead with security employing encryptions and firewalls. In addition to protecting the network from intrusion they also provide excellent monitoring and reporting tools, allowing you to see things that are otherwise invisible. Our firewall helped us spot a bottleneck on the LAN that was costing us precious hours of slower production.
Our new storage array is now performing at 4 times faster than any single drive on its own meaning a less stressed Production Manager, faster saves, shorter production times, a happier CGI team and more importantly, happier clients.
If you’d like to know more about our CG cost saving strategies get in touch with Paul on 01274 610600.

AR can deliver near
photographic 3d visuals to scale in your own home. The recent converge of
technologies makes AR a commercially successful proposition, from a huge
improvement of broadband and recent strives in live rendering. With the
introduction of Apple’s new operation software and soon to be launched Google
App demonstrates AR is viable and here to stay.
This technology will soon be built into every smart phone
and tablet offering a virtual reality experience which can be exploited by
e-commerce retailers to visualise any home or DIY product in a shopper’s home. It only requires those retailers to make the
quality 3D content available in their customer’s journey to deliver this
amazing shopping experience to the prospective customer.
If you’d like a demo or to just like to find out more don’t
hesitate to give Chris Leonard a call on 01274 610600.

The UK’s shopping
habits are changing. Whilst Black
Friday used to mean 3am store openings and stampedes on the High Street; this
year showed an 18% increase in digital sales from smartphones and tablets. With more people shopping from home, how do
retailers increase their online interactivity to sell a product?
Digital Showrooms are an innovative answer to changing customer
shopping habits. With a host of
platforms now utilising more powerful hardware in our everyday technology,
customers can showcase products in their own home with AR apps, Visualisers and
At Set Visions we can create photorealistic 3D models of
your product and provide Visualiser solutions to enable your customers to
explore and buy with confidence from the comfort of their armchair - maximizing
your sales potential and flexibility for every customer at a fraction of the
cost of real showrooms.
With global brands such as Audi taking the bold step of
opening digital showrooms using CGI to increase their product library while
decreasing the physical space needed to display, we see this trend gaining
strength. Customers can design,
customise and visualise their car in a 3D environment. The photorealistic CGI images are presented
with a full size interactive 360s - a 3D version of their final choice before
committing a penny to the purchase.
Take a look at our Visualise website for more
information or get in touch with our team to see how our AR apps, Visualisers
and 360 rotations can help build your virtual showroom.

Do you need creative images of your product but don’t have
physical samples? Set Visions CGI is the answer.
One of our long standing CGI clients recently challenged our
Pix department to create striking concept renders that sit within their brand
The product designs have very precise technical
specifications which our 3D modelling team were able to recreate perfectly in
CGI. In this case physical samples of the product were unavailable so the team modelled
from technical drawings and used specific fabrics from our vast library.
Another benefit of CGI for this project is the ability to
update a fabric or finish with the click of a button, allowing us to create numerous
iterations without the added expense of manufacture and shipping.
The images support Bluespot’s Seating Collection targeted
marketing campaign and are successfully being used across print and media
For more photorealistic renders visit our CGI portfolio page, with offices in the north and the south we can easily drop in for a chat
wherever you are.
