Render is a pioneering, innovative agency that has been creating immersive digital content for over a decade, working with a variety of local, national, and international brands.
Working in B2B and specialising in manufacturing, Render creates solutions that bring products to life through Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and immersive apps. It helps enterprises embrace digital transformation by turning data into scalable, immersive solutions that enable multiple audiences to experience brands and products effortlessly, in context and in real-time.
With a background in CGI and animation, and a passion for emerging technologies, Render spotted the potential for VR and AR in business, and three years ago moved into that space.
Based at Gemini House in Swindon, the company comprises a team of passionate and creative individuals including 3D artists, developers, project managers, business development executives and a senior management team.
The team at Render are also Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) ambassadors, offering their time and enthusiasm to help bring STEM subjects to life and demonstrate the value of them in life and careers. Bringing VR to schools, colleges, charities and working with Swindon Borough Council to roll out VR in all libraries, Render has reached out and shared their technology with thousands of people across the region.
In the short time VR and AR have been available and commercially viable, Render has worked hard to create partnerships with some of the world’s leading tech companies. Working with brands like
Intel and Scan Computers, Render produced a white paper, ‘Entry point to VR’, educating and propagating the benefits and importance of VR in business.
The company has also written and published over 35 articles about immersive technology, firmly cementing their position as thought leaders within the industry and beyond.
As an industry leader, Render has created technology used across the globe, and continues to develop new technologies, paving the way for what’s to come in the future.
“We are so excited to be a part of a platform that is recognising the huge contribution that technology is making to the UK as town and region that is becoming renowned as a leader in innovation in blending creative and technology to deliver solutions.
At Render we will continue to support platforms such as the Techies to drive and spearhead the growth of emerging technologies such as immersive VR and AR and lead the way in educating industry in these technologies and their application with our partners.” Mark Miles, CEO, Render
