This interactive masterclass will look at how we can create a digital copy of spaces and places. We will look at how new technologies can create immersive 3D copies, or ‘digital twins’, of all types of built spaces and venues. These can then be shared with clients, contractors, and visitors to freely navigate and explore, anytime, anywhere.

-        What are Immersive Environments and how the technology can benefit many business sectors;


-        Main uses of Immersive Environments to record buildings, venues, showrooms to create virtual site visits and for new ways to engage the public and clients;


-        The key benefits and limitations of Immersive Environments scanning; 


-        Viewer experience and capabilities;


-        Host experience and capabilities; 


-        Timeframes;


-        Preparation for scanning.
