Today we’re visualising Victoria’s geology in three dimensions.
When you are at a large international conference like iMARC, it’s hard to get people’s attention.
[Vision: People wearing 3D glasses watching presentation]
So, we thought something unique to attract people into our booth, so we thought what better than having a mine.
The response has been fantastic.
We’ve had a lot of enquiries already.
[Vision: Close-up of 3D glasses showing display they are viewing - actual view of presentation]
We’ve only been open an hour and we’ve had a lot of people through, so a great positive result.
[Vision: High quality 3D projector - man working PC]
Inside we’ve got a high quality 3D projector and a very high-powered PC.
[Vision: View of displays]
And that powers our 3D geological model, and people see that in stereo.
[Vision: People wearing 3D glasses]
So we’ve got some interesting 3D glasses.
[Vision: View of displays - Paul McDonald speaking - people mingling]
Being involved in an international conference is great for Victoria, because we’re trying to get that investment, first of all into Australia, and then definitely into Victoria.
[Vision: People sitting at table and viewing displays]
So showing what pretty competitive data that we have on offer through the 3D mine visualisation is a great way to get people’s attention.
