Ross Edwards: Immersive Technologies Director, IORMA
Throughout my career I have had first-hand experience of how new technology can disrupt industries and businesses. Starting out in photography, mainly for the film industry, the effects going digital on the industry, after a few false starts had many repercussions, not many would have thought phones would bring down camera companies.
After running a number of photographic studios, then at the time when film editing went digital I became involved in corporate films, with companies such as Honda and Porsche and working on feature films.
Then with another technological advance started moving into CGI,VFX special effects, such as Green screen, background replacement and set extensions, along with my colleagues who have worked on projects such as Lord of the Rings, Dark Knight trilogy and Marvel films and some with years’ experience of Architecture Pr-visualization sector. I’m passionate about education and different ways of learning so I enjoy going into schools teaching green-screen film making and also looking to bring the latest tech such as AR/VR into these projects.
Being able to make high quality digital environments puts us in an excellent place for projects in VR/AR, Virtual and Augmented Realities, working on projects for the medical, architecture and commercial sectors, as well as looking to develop cutting edge products/solutions around multi-sensory environments.
The future of immersive technologies along with the power of machine learning and AI is massive and it feels like we are only at the equivalent stages of Morse code compared to smart phones, as is the nature of these things there will be false dawns but the potential of these technologies and how they are and will be used and become invisible parts of our daily lives is really exciting.
