Intel needed help telling
its wearables story
In anticipation of the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show, Intel’s marketing team realized they had a perception issue to overcome: because Intel processors are becoming smaller and smaller, it’s less and less apparent that the technology powers even the tiniest devices into which they can now be integrated. To combat this, Intel came to Inhance Digital for help telling the story of how its processors are still inside many, if not most, of the small wearable devices on the market.
Dramatic demonstration of
Intel powered wearable devices
for CES attendees
“We wanted to show the wearable products in the way they’re typically being used, whether running or cycling,” Inhance Creative Director Nathan Leland said.
Data was generated by live athletes running on a treadmill and cycling on a set of rollers, then interpreted by their wearable devices – in this case wristwatches from New Balance and sunglasses from Oakley. The data was visualized on transparent screens in front of the athletes for attendees to see and better understand how Intel’s technology is integrated into wearables.
70% of CES attendees visited
Intel’s booth; 40% interacting
with the wearables exhibit
According to event surveys, 80,000 CES attendees visited the Intel exhibit booth. Nearly 44,000 of them reported meaningful engagement, while 78% rated the wearables exhibit as extremely valuable, spending an average of 20 minutes in the booth. Intel was rated very high overall among CES attendees, including being perceived in the top five brands as a leader in wearables.
Build a better briefing center
Harris Corporation, a $6-billion strong leader in communications technology with customers in more than 100 countries, needed an upgrade to its customer briefing center as part of its new headquarters expansion. The new facility design allowed for 23,000 square feet of space for presentation tools that would facilitate meaningful dialogue among Harris’ customers, partners and other key decision makers. Harris came to Inhance Digital for help designing the traffic flow, the exhibit technology and the interactive content.
Unforgettable immersive and interactive experiences telling the Harris story
Increasing engagement among Harris audiences, the heart of the new center is an immersive and interactive experience area that Inhance helped design and implement. Visitors there can explore stations highlighting how Harris technology informs, connects and protects its customers. Highlights include a 20-by-7-foot interactive mural, a mission simulation movie and a wall of heroes, where warfighters and first responders share the vital role technology plays in lifesaving situations.
A well-publicized grand opening, and booked GIC appointments for two years
The Harris Global Innovation Center is the most sophisticated briefing center in Inhance's history. Harris proved the perfect partner in building highly immersive, interactive experiences through a series of on-site exhibits that serve to deeply connect Harris' audiences with its capabilities.
and return on investment
AB Mauri is a baking technology company steeped in tradition with its sights set on the future. Having invested in a space three times larger than its previous exhibit booths for the annual International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE), AB Mauri wanted the best way to showcase the company's spirit of collaboration with its industrial and artisan bakery partners, while optimizing engagement with its audience at the show and proving the value of the additional investment.
A unique virtual reality experience showcasing baking in a whole new way
Told through the eyes of an 11-year-old girl presenting to her classmates, Inhance Digital produced a behind-the-scenes documentary that demonstrates the Mauri Model in less than five minutes, taking viewers outfitted with VR headsets on an immersive, 360-degree journey through the baking experience.
Nearly 10% impression rate
among 20,000 IBIE attendees
Seated in comfortable swivel chairs, 1,500-plus attendees lined up to experience the VR animated and live action presentation in groups of up to 15. They simultaneously experienced visual and audio elements that allowed to look around an ancient village, elementary school classroom, industrial bakery, and even through active bread-baking ovens.
Educate attendees on detecting the persistence of cancerous cells after treatment
Amgen, one of the world’s leading biotech companies, aimed to educate attendees, mainly hematologists and oncologists, about the importance of detecting Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) in hematologic malignancies. Amgen Oncology needed an engaging way to teach physicians about new, more effective ways to detect the persistence of cancerous cells after treatment that may lead to disease relapse. They sought their largest audiences at the annual meetings of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).
An interactive game that takes players through various detection methods
Tradeshow attendees were attracted to Amgen’s exhibit using vibrant colors and inviting sounds from the gaming tablets, as well as a 75-inch monitor playing an attract loop and game-scores leaderboard. Four rounds took visitors through the various technologies of detecting MRD, each time looking deeper. The game concluded with a quiz related to MRD assessment. Finally, players were asked to enter their name and area of expertise – information that was used to display scores on the leaderboard and give Amgen additional insight into those educated through the engaging interactivity.
Hundreds of healthcare professionals connect with Amgen
At each event where it exhibits, Amgen Oncology now generates crowds, and more booth interest, connecting with hundreds more attendees over previous years. Hundreds have played the game, and even more have learned through the gameplay now available on the Amgen Oncology website.
In its December 2016 issue, Pharma Marketing 360 magazine featured Inhance’s work for Amgen on this MRD game as game-changing innovation.
Drive visitor engagement with brand and products
Monster Worldwide, Inc., launched a new brand to better match the full suite of online tools that power employee recruitment. Monster sought a fun, simple, and engaging way to tell this extremely complicated story. In addition, they knew they only had moments to draw as many booth visitors as possible and captivate them with this new message.
Monster’s products integrated into popular gameplay
Inspired by twitch mobile games, Inhance designed a playful 3D world where symbols of Monster social media and data products were used as powerful tools for acquiring job candidate targets. Players used the right combination of tools to aim and break through barriers that stood between them and the best candidates.
Crowds, shouts, laughter and countless conversations
Complete with vibrant colors and inviting movement, the game engaged up to four people simultaneously, as huge crowds gathered. Each show where Monster has used the interactive sparked conversions of attendees to new customers. Monster has since asked Inhance to develop a mobile version of the game for the public.

GE Healthcare solutions
GE Healthcare provides medical services that are shaping a new age in patient care and wanted to present new ways for its exhibit booth visitors to quickly learn about its ViosWorks, MAGIC and SilentScan technologies. GE came to Inhance Digital
for help with sharing these important stories.
GE Healthcare’s Innovation
Hub and MR Theatre
Inhance Digital worked with GE Healthcare product marketers to design and develop visually attractive engagements across the three target subject areas. The resulting exhibit fabrication was a multi-entry gazebo with inviting projection of motion graphics.
Increased visits, captivated
audiences, higher learning
The scale of the exhibit attracted more customers to the booth than in previous years. In just a few minutes, visitors came away with a clear understanding of extremely complex solutions. The GE Healthcare sales team was highly satisfied with the number of leads this new multi-stage experience generated.
Inhance’s work to build GE Healthcare’s Innovation Hub earned it a prestigious 2017 Pharma Choice award from PM360 in the Interactive category.
Conveying the importance of unseen, integrated cyber-hardening technology
Raytheon developed an exhibit to showcase its proprietary defenses against cyber attacks from any threat - known and unknown. Raytheon turned to Inhance Digital to help execute a story that combines a fully immersive surround theater with a flying drone. Through an ambassador-led digital experience, visitors come to understand how today's secrets are kept safe.
A fully immersive, multi-sensory storytelling environment
Inhance designed an immersive surround theater displaying dynamic imagery, along with a quadcopter model hanging from the ceiling. Theatergoers watch different scenarios in which the copter is hacked by a third party actor, and then witness as the attack is neutralized by Raytheon's proprietary system.
A brand ambassador walks each audience through the experience, controlling the cinema playback via a handheld, custom-configured tablet, enabling multiple presentation controls.
Attention, attendance and longevity
Raytheon enjoyed extensive press coverage at the 2016 Farnborough Air Show. The popular exhibit continues to make the event rounds, and also lives at Raytheon’s headquarters for demonstration to visiting partners, customers, investors and other Raytheon audiences.
Quickly produce film-quality effects
Television producers wanted to take advantage of new software capabilities that could allow weekly shows to elevate their visual-effects (VFX) sophistication to levels previously reserved only for major film production.
Scripts for a new series where humans regularly transformed into fantastic creatures provided a perfect opportunity to put the modern software and growing pool of capable talent to the test.
Passing every audition
Inhance Digital, having just produced effects for CSI Miami and with a team that would eventually work on 22 television shows and four feature films, was chosen as one of three VFX houses who would bid on each episode. Because of its convenient proximity to the network, continuous record of on-time, high-quality work and positive relationships with the production’s in-house VFX management, Inhance would be one of the only contractors to work through the full run of the show’s six seasons.
Supernatural crime drama success
One of the first television shows in a popular, based-on-folklore genre of the mid-2000s, and one of the longest lasting, NBC’s Grimm put characters from the German Brothers Grimm tales in the middle of a weekly police drama set in modern-day Portland, Oregon.
The VFX-heavy Grimm became a hit with the NBC's audience and a solid financial performer, outlasting four other similar genre shows on the same network.
Educate physicians on the issue of residual cancers and how to detect them
Building off the success of Amgen’s Minimal Residual Detective (MRD) tablet-interactive, which tests players’ knowledge about disease identification accuracy and the different test types available, Amgen wanted a new way to tell the story of how challenging it can be to detect residual cancer cells. The goal being to remind doctors about the importance of finding and using the best tests available.
A handheld tablet allowing attendees to scan their environment for MRD
As visitors use the tablet to scan their 360-degree surroundings, they are tasked with identifying abnormal residual plasma cells. In addition, educational screens at the start and conclusion of each round, plus quiz questions, reinforce key learnings. Completing the experience creates a greater understanding of the characteristics of treatment-resistant cells and the importance of testing for minimal residual disease in multiple myeloma (MM) to improve patient outcomes.
Attractive new exhibit increased overall attendee engagement
Having achieved its goals at multiple U.S. events, Amgen is exploring using the discovery interactive around the globe.
Inhance was tasked with not only creating a compelling VR experience for one but also the 13,000 viewers in the audience. To capture their attention, Inhance leveraged the power of Epic's Unreal Engine 4 to power a rich, interactive product demo set in a cinematic world.
Focused on the product demo, the team wanted to make sure it was accurate and dead simple to use. The products were rebuilt using the production CAD to capture every detail while building VR-ready assets. The demo's UX was a priority from the start. An agile approach to building testing and refining with the client produced an interactive that was so easy to use 6 and 9 year olds visiting the office could operate the demo with no help. Lastly, the environmental art team built a world filled with waterfalls, pools of water, wafting mist, moody light, and flying bats.
The experience was a hit both with the internal executive team and showgoers alike. Not only did it provide a new way to experience the power of DellEMC's products but it sparked the imagination of anyone that gave it a try, including Michael Dell.
Dispel the myth that offshore oil and gas industry is “dirty” and “low-tech,” on its way out and soon to be replaced with solar panels and wind turbines.

Jane the Virgin poses some novel visual effects challenges. The title character Jane (Gina Rodriguez) is living a normal reality most of the time, but her vivid imagination and the show's telenovela format provide the need for some occasional spectacular visuals. Because of the infrequency of bigger effects, Jane the Virgin needed a VFX solution that would accommodate their wide variety of VFX needs with a consistent team they could trust.
Inhance VFX partnered with Jane the Virgin in its first season to provide dedicated, scalable on-set supervision and producer support, from concept through delivery. For every episode, the Inhance team works closely with Production and Post to find creative solutions to visual problems while maintaining the original integrity of each shot through completion.
When Jane the Virgin premiered in 2014 it was touted as one of The CW’s breakout hits. Inhance has developed a close working relationship with Jane the Virgin over the first three seasons of the show. The show has a devoted following and has been renewed for a fourth season (2017-2018).
To further engage the audience at the Farnborough Air Show through an interactive interface that provides a deeper experience and a unique hands-on learning tool within the show.
Boeing approached Inhance to create a highly engaging and modular centennial themed Augmented Reality (AR) experience for the Farnborough Air Show (FAS) 2016 and beyond. Essential to captivate the audience and provide them with a deeper understanding of the majestic mavens of the sky they would be observing at the show would be the intuitive nature of the app & its functions.
Using iPads, Boeing and Inhance came together to dive deeper into the world of aviation and the innovation Boeing has brought to the industry. Our app allowed for users to uncover further details of the aircraft, equipment and history behind the advancements to take flight beyond the airfield.
The events manager for DellEMC World strives to create a Disneyland for IT. Outside the keynote hall and the expo floor, 10s of thousands of square feet are dedicated to experiences and activities. DellEMC asked Inhance to create gaming experience that could be played individually or collectively.
Using Minecraft as its start, ServerCraft told the story of digital transformation in a playful and tangible way. Wielding the "Staff of Transformation", players ran through the world in search of outdated technology and solutions. Once found, they could upgrade the old systems with new, faster, hybridized advancements.
DellEMC's staff were overwhelmed by the level of engagement at the show. Going into the show the team expected players to spend up to 15-30 minutes playing and earning approximately 600 points. At the end of the 3 day event, hundreds had played, the leaders had eclipsed 14,000 points and spent hours at the station. SeverCraft lives on around the world at smaller DellEMC and partner events.
The producers of Chuck approached Inhance Digital after principal photography had been completed on the film, and the edit had locked. They needed our artists to enhance and create crowds for their title fight sequence. The film takes place in the 1970's, so we also had to make sure that our crowd reflected the time period. The film was an "indie," so they also had a more modest budget and a short timeline.
Fortunately, our team is accustomed to expedited timelines, considering many of our TV clients require quick turnarounds. Our methodology for crowd duplication and enhancement had been honed from years of working on the hit show Nashville. We created some crowd pods and composited them into the scene, obscuring any obvious matte lines with atmospheric smoke (remember, you could smoke indoors in the 70's!) and well-placed lens flares.
The producers and director of the film were elated with the final product. They were afraid that high quality VFX couldn't be accomplished on their budget. But the effects integrated into the scenes seamlessly. This example of "invisible effects" did its job of being unnoticeable. In this case, the artists' goal is for their work not to be flashy or noticeable. And audiences across the country were all "fooled" into believing that the production hired thousands of extras to fill Madison Square Garden.
Create a cohesive experience
$3.5-billion Industry giant and laser-technology leader TRUMPF needed a partner to create their customer briefing center from the ground-up in Chicago. After a highly-competitive RFP, Inhance was chosen to bring the vision set forth to life.
The Smart Factory, center of excellence for Industry 4.0
“Our goal was to put the visitor at the center of a journey that will evolve and stand the test of time” said Inhance Creative Director Philippe Martinez.
We created a holistic center, using high-tech to demonstrate high-tech, while facilitating face-to-face meetings and unexpected delight. Using the Hero’s Journey as our starting point, we crafted an experience not unlike that of the best theme parks, starting at the moment the visit is booked. Thanks to a mobile companion app containing useful tips, videos, directions and a QR-code reader, the visitors can easily plan their visit and also find their way within the facility. We closely worked with TRUMPF and AV company WorldStage to complement the award-winning architecture by the firm Barkow Leibinger to deliver everything ahead of schedule and under budget.
Already fully booked for the next 6 months
The Grand Opening, on September 12th, 2017, was a resounding success where the Smart Factory was introduced to the Press and VIPs. It was featured in numerous publications, including the Chicago Tribune and DesignBoom. When entering the gorgeous glass and metal trusses structure on I-90, visitors are welcomed by a large-scale interactive mural and receive -at our recommendation- their laser-engraved visitor badge, which bears a QR-code linked to each interactive. The control room overlooking the factory floor has one of the largest transparent OLED in the world, giving them a chance to explore each machine in detail. The main conference room is equipped with a custom-made system for presentation plays lists and collaboration. Each machine sports its own interactive touch screen. Last but not least, an “impossible selfie” kiosk gives groups the chance to immortalize their tour by taking a picture high up on the catwalk. After scanning their badge, it’s automatically sent to their companion app and allows them to share on social media. The best part: the facility has been booked solid since the opening.
