vStream’s work in Experiential has ranged from the award winning Aviva 3D Experience, the world’s first 5D Experience ‘Elbow Saves Christmas’, through The Thin Lizzy Kinect Installation to The Jameson Global Party.

Elbow Saves Christmas 5D Experience


The world’s first 5D Animated Christmas Grotto Experience has been developed by vStream, and was enjoyed by shoppers at the Westfield shopping centres in London as Elbow, a very special Santi elf, saves Christmas!’

Christmas shoppers visiting Santa’s Grotto had a very unique opportunity to partake in a Christmas story with a difference as they are immersed in a stereoscopic 3D visual experience which incorporates a fourth dimension of wind, lights and elf dust! Pushing the boundaries even further, the fifth dimension is the personalisation of the experience, with each child in the audience featuring in the film. Their pictures are displayed throughout the story as an integral part of the narrative, as participants watch Elbow saving Santa’s presents from the good-elf-turned-bad, Fumble.
The project delivered significant results for our client, with a 20% year on year increase in footfall for Westfield London.

Thin Lizzy Experience Microsoft Kinect


vStream’s work in the experiential space has ranged from the Aviva 3D Experience, through to The Jameson Global Party and The Thin Lizzy Kinect Installation. Being proud Dubliners with a love of rock, our Thin Lizzy Kinect Installation was a unique and special project. The Phil Lynott Exhibition was the largest collection of Phil and Thin Lizzy memorabilia ever gathered. vStream’s innovative interactive installation celebrated and brought to life newly discovered Phil Lynnot notebooks using Kinect technology. Thin Lizzy fans could turn the virtual pages of Phil’s notebooks and get a real feel for the man, his lyrics and passion for music. With contributors such as Thin Lizzy, U2′s Bono and many other luminaries of the Irish rock scene, vStream were delighted to be a part of this historical project.
Innovation comes with research and development and vStream’s software team like to be challenged and build platforms to support great creative concepts. However, they also build platforms that deliver important functionality, such as vStream bespoke WebTV platform – being used in multiple countries by the likes of AXA Global Distributors and Compuware International. If a platform exists, vStream can use it, if it doesn’t, vStream can build it.
