|Description||A New Era In Digital Engagement|
DigiGage is start-up that have developed a patent pending platform for embedding real-time 3D animated worlds that reacts to their surroundings in real-time for digital displays. Our first line of products (winGage) is aimed for the elevator industry as a an elevator interior design product that aside for providing real-time information to the cabâ€™s passengers serves as a digital architecture means to turn every elevator to a â€œdigitally transparentâ€ elevator.
By using the winGage SW and a standard digital display, the system imitates the looks and behavior of a real window if there was a window in the elevator. winGage is first and foremost a digital-dÃ©cor product. The â€œvirtual-windowâ€ is based on a large (22â€-60â€ size) screen, that in some installation types is embedded into a glass wall, in which we run one of a variety of scenic oriented, realistically looking virtual â€œlivingâ€ worlds. With no integration or connectivity to the elevatorâ€™s internal system apart from a standard electricity outlet and an existing building internet connection, our â€œvirtual-windowâ€ detects the movement of the elevatorâ€™s cab- so it â€œknowsâ€ whether it is stationary or moving, its direction, speed, location and degree of acceleration or deceleration. This is translated to the movement of the content- when the elevator goes up, the viewerâ€™s point of view goes up as well, so the view changes (e.g. floor-level objects stay down at floor level) as would occur if there was a real window. This synchronizes the sensation we feel with the one that we see- just like in a transparent elevator, and creates a better physical feeling.
It doesnâ€™t stop here, though - certain content objects behave differently than others by escorting the â€œwindowâ€ as it moves. For example- in an ocean world that simulates an underwater elevator, a dolphin will follow the cab while the reef and other â€œregularâ€ fish stay at their initial height. The system is controlled by the DigiGage portal that includes a content library full of different content worlds with which the buildingâ€™s manager, the residing company or the tenants can swap the content of its elevatorsâ€™ winGage system in a click, such that a building in Rome can see in the virtual view of the Amazonas waterfalls in one week and jump in a click to the living vivid Times Square in NYC the week after. In addition, the system offers a user area that enables an in-building messaging system, floor numbering display, floor based textual data and real-time RSS feed based information strip.
