APP DEVELOPMENT

At Luma we specialize in the comprehensive development of Apps for iPad, iPhone and Android, all featuring strong 3D content.  Our technical ability means we can draw on a whole host of resources to form unique models that let your target market experience exactly what you want them to.

3D SCANNING AND DATA CAPTURE

3D data capture involves gathering information in the real world and using that information to create digital assets.  Building complex data-sets from real life objects or environments allows us to create highly detailed information which is of use in many specialist fields such as, Archaeology, Historical Conservation, Architecture, Neuroscience, Human and Animal Anatomy. This data can then be integrated in visualisation software for the production of animations, real time interactive models, images and virtual experiences.

AUGMENTED REALITY

Using a tracker image that is programmed to activate a smartphone or tablet, AR enables the user to enjoy a highly personal and enhanced experience across a whole range of media such as hoardings, marketing images, brochures, business cards or highly bespoke communication tools.  Simply by pointing their device at the tracker, the user enjoys access to images, video or 3D models quite literally at their fingertips. We know that AR is a great way of engaging your public.

360 PANORAMIC VIDEO & PHOTOGRAPHY

360 video and 360 photography are commonly the first experience clients have when it comes to immersive communication.  An extremely cost effective and successful way of enabling your target market to experience places without physically being there. At Luma we produce exceptionally high quality 360 degree panoramic video and photography by taking advantage of some of the market’s leading edge technologies. Get in touch to discuss how you can reach your target market with 360 technology.

Thereafter we’ll test and ensure everything is pitch perfect for public launch.

  • “The 3D app is an astonishing piece of technology that unveils how Dundee Waterfront will look in the future. We are expecting a surge in Tourism and visitor numbers as the waterfront develops, so the app will allow prospective visitors or investors a chance to virtually viist and explore Dundee Waterfront now."

    Mike Galloway Director of City Development, Dundee City
  • on LUMA's 'Window on the Past' University of Edinburgh Old College Quad achaeology app. "I worked with a company Luma3Di to develop an app which charts the history of the site where our iconic Old College stands. The idea for this came from me chairing the project board for the landscaping of the quad and the amazing archaeology that was uncovered. I wanted to share this in an accessible way and Luma had just the right technology."

    Mary Bownes Senior Vice Principal (External Engagement), The University of Edinburgh
  • on LUMA's Dundee Waterfront app and V&A Visualisations. “This app helps bring the V&A Dundee and its supern location on the waterfrontat the very heart of the city to life in a fun and inspiring way.
