Big Ideas Presentation on 3D Visualization for Retail – Stage 3, Expo, Level 1;
January 12, 3:15 – 3:45 pm
Dalia Lasaite, co-founder and CEO of CGTrader will co-present with Tobias Nientiedt, CGI Content Lab Lead of OTTO, the parent company of Crate and Barrel, Bonprix and a host of other iconic retail brands.
Lasaite will focus on the use of 3D product experiences, including 360° 3D product views and Augmented Reality, to simulate in-store shopping experiences online - proven to increase sales conversions and reduce product returns. The adoption of innovative technologies such as 3D Visualization is particularly important in today’s fiercely competitive retail landscape, enabling retailers to not only differentiate their offering, but also reduce operational costs and be more profitable. Nientiedt will present OTTO’s successful use of computer-generated 3D product images to replace traditional costly and time-intensive photography for applications such as lifestyle scenes, as well as AR experiences.
“Showcasing products in different materials and colors makes image production very slow and expensive. With CGI and the digitization of our production pipeline, the process of rendering image content for thousands of variations of the same product can be automated. This results in faster and more economical production while increasing the quality of our images as a nice side benefit,” said Tobias Nientiedt, CGI Content Lab Lead, OTTO.
“NRF 2020 is the ideal venue to demonstrate the role of 3D Visualization in expanding the concept of experiential retail to eCommerce. Today‘s consumers are looking for more than just products, they are looking for experiences. Their ability to interact with products online - whether through e-Commerce sites, social media, or other channels - will be a deciding factor in building brand loyalty and increasing sales performance,” said Dalia Lasaite, co-founder and CEO, CGTrader.
