Igloo opens new Virtual Reality centre in Melbourne Featured

By

UK-headquartered virtual reality company Igloo Vision has opened a new office and virtual reality centre in Melbourne to service the Australian market and as a base for its Asia Pacific support and business development team.

Igloo says the new office is equipped as a Shared VR Centre complete with a 6-metre Igloo system, available for clients and content creators to use to get a first-hand feel for Shared VR and to test their content.

Igloo has had a presence in Australia since 2017, and the company lists client companies including Optus, NSW Environmental Protection Authority, Department of Defence and PwC.

Igloo says it has established a bigger base in Melbourne to meet a growing demand for its services.

The Igloo Melbourne team is headed up by James Sheridan, an authority on the technical workings of multi-projector immersive environments, who established Igloo’s Asia Pacific operations in 2017.

“It’s great to have found a new home at the heart of Melbourne’s technology community,” said Sheridan, Igloo’s Head of Asia Pacific.

“With so much immersive and VR content now being produced, brands have been looking for a way to share it among teams, and Igloo meets that need. As a result, we’ve been growing quickly, and the Australian office enables us to accelerate that growth.”

Sheridan spent nine years as a lecturer and tutor at the Australian National University, and worked as a consultant at EDM Studio building a variety of multi-projector, interactive environments.

Sheridan was Igloo’s first Chief Technology Officer in the UK.
