Studio 2038 creates CGI for Digital Marketing
To attract more customers and stay ahead of the competition, companies increasingly employ digital marketing strategies. To help with that, startups develop CGI solutions for 3D visualizations and animations. Such solutions increase audience immersion in product releases, location presentations, as well as interior and exterior design exhibitions.
German startup Studio 2038 provides CGI solutions for digital marketing applications. The solutions include a 3D rendering and 3D animation, as well as augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), that enable new ways of interaction with products, for example, when used in showrooms and stores. By using CGI applications, Studio 2038 introduces companies across various industries, including retail, automotive, and construction, to novel marketing digitalization solutions.
Captate visualizes Real Estate
Retail sales presentations that use interactive 3D visualizations, animations, and virtual tours help customers better assess the property and its potential. Therefore, startups develop CGI solutions for to help companies reduce marketing expenditures and decrease the length of sales cycles. Immersive and multi-channel CGI solutions improve user experience and increase marketing presence.
Irish startup Captate provides CGI solutions for property developers and real estate brokers. The company’s solutions include 3D virtual tours and 3D rendering services, for example computer-aided design (CAD) and building information modeling (BIM) renderings. The startup delivers its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution for various project stages in the industrial, retail, hospitality, and real estate sectors, among others. Additionally, Captate develops digital marketing cross-channel strategies, generating buyer data from user interactions with content to enable the early start of presales and proof of demand.
Live CGI focuses on Virtual Production
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic forced governments around the globe to put limitations on public events and gatherings. In order to help companies create digital venues instead, startups develop computer-generated imagery software solutions that facilitate virtual production. Such solutions enable remote content creation for TV and cinema with fewer people involved.
US-based startup Live CGI develops a CGI SaaS platform, consisting of a virtual studio and a video player, for mass media production. The visual studio enables live content creation by enabling motion capture sensor data transmission to mobile, AR, VR, and flat-screen devices. The startup’s Quinstream media player uses artificial intelligence to integrate metadata with content and enable simultaneous delivery to various outlets. Live CGI’s virtual production solutions create content remotely and with fewer capital expenses.
Wysilab develops Terrain Generation Software
The quality of computer-generated imagery effects generally impacts the success of a movie, video game, or marketing campaign. Therefore, startups develop imagery solutions that improve the realism and rendering speed of CGI. These solutions improve the level of detail, interactivity, and resolution of computer-generated (CG) effects.
French startup Wysilab develops terrain generation software for CGI, video games, movies, and visual effects (VFX). The startup’s produce Instant Terra represents a fast terrain generation and editing tool, allowing objects creation of unlimited resolution. The product’s features include erosion simulation, colorization, upscaling, and path generation – all supporting content creators enhance production quality and capacities.
Golem Factory speeds up CGI Rendering
Quality CGI involves countless moving elements that impact each other in many ways, which is why CGI rendering requires significant computing power. In order to help graphics companies save time and money on image rendering processes, startups develop decentralized computing solutions. These solutions rely on idle computing resources of individual providers to process demanding operations such as complex CG scenes.
Polish startup Golem Factory offers decentralized computational power for rendering complex Blender scenes and animations. The startup builds an Ethereum-based marketplace where individuals sell their machines’ idle computing power for software developers, scientists, and graphic creators to use in their projects. Golem Factory’s Clay Beta product increases the speed of rendering processes, providing a cost-effective alternative to CGI render farms.
