Interactive demos

Also in Gent, samples come to life in interactive demos. Starting from the design stage, the guests witness the creation of the sample with various Esko software solutions on the big screens. Different steps in the software move the sample further to the digital finishing stage on the Kongsberg cutting tables.

Equally exciting is the virtual reality experience where the visitor intuitively manipulates 3D samples in hyper-realistic store simulations with Oculus Rift glasses and Oculus Touch controllers.
