CGI Product animations for BOTT GmbH

Winter 2015

Proto Imaging continues to build a strong relationship with BOTT UK and BOTT GmbH. We have recently supplied CGI content for a new online configurator, marketing stills and full CGI product animations. Over recent months we've produced vehicle livery graphics, online configurator assets, brochure images and full CGI product animations.

The advantage for our client is clear. The quality of output achievable using our specialist 3D CGI rendering techniques means we can reproduce their products in virtually any situation and application. Once the 3D models are prepared they can be 'imaged' from any angle and animated to highlight the the quality of the products and their functionality. In most circumstances we have negated the need for expensive and in-flexible photo-shoots and saved BOTT time and money.

Digital Video production for Atlas Elektronik

Working closely with the client, we produced a 15min comprehensive demonstration of the MCM system which included CGI animation, live-footage, infographics and a full narration.

MOD Data pack created for Karrimor SF

Autumn 2011

Defence Imaging worked closely with Karrimor SF in the design and development of the British Army's new Patrol and Mortar packs. Design and development time was accelerated as less design stages were required to reach the final design. Destined for the Afghan theatre of war, these packs have now been produced in thousands and are currently in service. Furthermore, using the 3D data created during development, we supplied hundreds of technical linework illustrations for MOD product specification documents.
