VR an AR

Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) & 360 Degree Filming are all cutting edge add-ons to enhance our visual training experience Learner retention levels are pushing 90% with the use of VR technologies AR uses smart phone and tablets devises to interact with pre-programed triggers.

Training Solutions

We have used visual based training to help many companies with their site and company Inductions, Safety, Procedural training and eLearning and/or eLearning (mobile learning) Let us assist you by creating an LMS (Learning Managment Systems) eLearning and mLearning system. Our training incorporating video, animation, photographs, voiceovers, visual based questions, drag and drop interactions, all with customisable score tracking of the learner. All our LMS applications are Scorm Level 1.2 compliant

Game Development

We're adamant that the next level of safety and procedure training is in 3D serious games - Virtual Reality Simulators! We take reference photographs, video, point cloud information and recreate the site in a 3D virtual world. The learner can navigate their way around the virtual site identifying potential safety hazards or incorrect procedures or best practices. We in turn generate a scoring system and user controls that will educate and reinforce the company's approach to safety and training Our games give the learner far greater retention of information than was previously possible in conventional training. The fun way to learning begins!

Video Production

Video / Special Effects Production (in house equipment), Filming.

Animation and Graphic Design

We have created hundreds of 3D characters that are used as the 'safety hero' or 'training guru' in our productions Our characters take on many forms such as an animals, mascots, or actual people, such as team leaders. Basically anything that a client feels will be relevant to their scenario. These characters can then be composited into a real life settings whereby they can interact with real people that we have filmed. The results are captivating and the audience is always amazed by such scenes Our 3D characters are very life like and have Full Human Bipedal Movement and 100% Lip Sync in any Language!

The Boiler Room team have worked with various industries for the past 18 years, producing visual training and safety material. To date we have produced and have in our archives, thousands of 3D computer models and training scenes. We utilise 3D computer animation over live footage, or 3D computer pictures as training tools. The items and scenes we have animated, resemble real world items and are not branded to any particular company, thereby allowing easy customisation for any application. We have already produced several hundreds of hours of Training Material for eLearning, Virtual Mines (all mining types), Virtual Paper Machines, Virtual Construction Sites, Office Training, Induction Video’s, Accident Reconstructions, Picture Icons depicting complex topics, Visual Examinations for illiterates, Behaviour Based Training, Booklets and most working environments in 3D. We are experts in converting complex subject matter into an impactful visual formats.
