Product of the Week: PlusNewMedia brings 3D Virtual Reality to superyachts

Written by Gemma Fottles

Dutch company PlusNewMedia, a leader in the field of high end 3D visual productions, is bringing Virtual Reality to the superyacht industry. Already working with some of the world’s best shipyards, PlusNewMedia is specialised in the creation of Virtual Reality experiences which prospective owners can use to preview a future build or design like never before.

Via a custom made application, clients are given the opportunity to embark upon an interactive tour through their future vessel via several predefined hot spots both on board and at water level. At each each hotspot the client can enjoy a fully interactive 360 view. In order to further enhance the experience, optionally animated elements and audio effects can also be added.

PlusNewMedia has gained a lot of experience with Virtual Reality in the high end real estate market in recent years, where they report that this technique is gaining more and more momentum in order to bring clients an unparalleled experience.

Director of Business Development at PlusNewMedia, Norbert Bessems, comments on the process: “The Virtual Reality packages we can put together for our clients in the superyacht industry are sure to amaze any prospective owner. The technology quite literally lets you be inside the concept design. Complete down to details including animated seas and flags waving in the wind, it’s as close as you can get to experiencing the real deal before the construction process has begun - and may in fact trigger that process in the meantime!”

The company is working with a number of superyacht builders and suppliers on a recurring basis. One of these companies is fellow Dutch shipyard Heesen. The two brands have amongst others collaborated on the following animation of the 70 metreGalactica Super Novaand several other impressive projects.

Next to the Virtual Reality experience,” Bessems continues, “another additional advantage of our packages is that the content can also be used as a basis for production of high end renders and/or animations. The full experience (Virtual Reality hardware, Application and VR content) can be delivered by PlusNewMedia as a single package.”
