I. Design and Engineering

Early conceptual explorations and technical validations will have a tremendous impact on the outcome of a project. Make sure to contact our experts at the very beginning of your creative process.

Design Intent Consulting

Early conceptual exploration of VYV’s technology impact in the context of a project aimed at providing targets and guidelines for subsequent phases.

Projection Study

Process that will generate documents detailing optimal projector placement and lens type as well as projection coverage, brightness and related pixel density.

Calibration Study

Process that will generate documents identifying the ideal calibration method for a project and detailing the equipment needed to provide it such as optical markers and cameras as well as their position.

Tracking Study

Process that will generate documents detailing optimal camera type, placement and lens type and optical marker integration into props and costumes in order to track objects within a specified volume accurately.

System Schematics

Single-line drawings detailing system components and their organization.

Third-party Design Review

Review of client-provided drawings and design intent to ensure optimal system performance.

II. Production services

These constitute the core of VYV’s services. This is when your ideas finally take shape. This is the reason we love our work.

3D Acquisition

The very first phase of a production is centered on the acquisition and treatment of geometry data.

Scanning

Physical volume scanning to acquire geometry data that will be used to create models for screens, props or any kind of object.

Modeling

Construction of simplified 3D models from geometry data to produce models that will be integrated as assets in our software.

UV Mapping

Creation of the models’ texture space that will allow its use as a projection surface.

Preproduction

Early production phase conducted off-site in order to prepare equipment and media and address technical and design issues before moving on to the show phase.

Programming

First pass show programming including 3D models and media imports as well as event sequencing on a timeline.

Previsualization

Complete immersive show simulation including video projection, sets and lighting that can be outputted as a video file or displayed in a VR headset.

Workshops

Workshops conducted with the client to explore the potentialities offered by our technology. Concepts are tested out on a technical and creative basis to ensure that the show’s signature is respected once it gets ported on stage in the production phase.

System Installation

Proper system installation is critical when dealing with large-scale productions. Our team will support you through this process so you can reach optimal system performance.

FAT Support

Support for the factory acceptance test procedure of the project.

SAT Support

Support for the site acceptance test procedure of the project.

System Integration Support

Support offered to the project’s integrator to ensure optimal VYV equipment operation.

Show

Main production phase where most of the show is programmed and VYV’s implication is solicited on both creative and technical aspects of the project.

Media Import

Large scale video projects imply a work phase dedicated to media management and transfer on servers.

Timeline Editing

Creation of the show’s structure through a creative assemblage of media components as well as events such as cues onto sequences.

VFX, Compositing & Color Grading

Creation of the complex visual compositions as well as color correction can be achieved through advanced image manipulation on VYV’s software.

External System Integration

Integration of our technology in complex frameworks to interact with various third-party software and hardware belonging to other departments such as automation, lighting, AV and networking.

Automated Back-Up Programming

Deployment of automated systems that will provide failsafe mechanisms in cases of potential malfunction in order to preserve a show’s integrity during its execution.

Operation

Running a show is a task in itself. VYV can provide technicians to do a job or support its client’s own team.

Documentation & Training

Specialized documentation has to be handed out to the client In order to finally deliver a project and ensure autonomous operation.

System Configuration Guide

Project-specific documentation produced to support basic system maintenance and configuration.

Show Operation Guide

Show-specific documentation produced to support technicians during show operation.

Hand-over Training

Training provided on-site by our experts to the client’s operation team to ensure smooth operation.

Archival

VYV offers basic project archival services to its client to avoid potential losses during events such as maintenance operation, equipment failure, hand overs, etc.

Show Archival

Crucial show data such as programming and media is both stored on a physical device and on a virtual server location on the cloud.

Show Retrieval

If a project is stored through VYV’s services, our team will be able to access its data and restore a complete show.

Product Customization

Some projects necessitate additional software or hardware features which are not currently part of our product line. VYV can offer custom development services in order to address exceptional problems.

Initial Analysis

Analysis of the obstacle’s nature and identification of a technological solution.

Proof of Concept

Scientific literature review followed by the completion of initial tests to establish the validity of the selected technological solution.

Research & Development

Hardware or software development phase characterized by multiple iterations and tests.

Prototyping

Production of an alpha prototype of the technological solution and subsequent testing to ensure the future release of a refined version.

Workshops

Final testing phase executed in VYV’s lab, at the client’s facilities or on-site with a finished version of the technological solution in presence of the client to ensure smooth show integration.

III. Support & Maintenance

VYV provides support services internationally to its clients and can directly assist them on maintenance operations.

System Upgrade Integration

Support offered by our team to the integrators during system upgrade operations.

Remote Access Support

Using remote assistance software to access distant servers, our team can provide support from VYV’s lab to our client’s production.

Remote Electronic Support

VYV has deployed over the years a support infrastructure to remotely support our clients. Place a support ticket or chat directly with our experts to get some help.

IV. Learning

VYV offers different types of training depending on the client’s needs and the project’s context.

Online Tutorials

First layer of training material that can be accessed on the VYV School online platform. Video lessons followed by practical exercises will help introduce our client’s team to our systems.

In-Office Training

Personalized training sessions in VYV’s lab with our resident experts.

Remote Training

Personalized training sessions in remote from our lab using video conferencing and remote access software to train our client’s team.
