Over the past twenty years David Douglas and producer Diane Roberts have collaborated on a wide variety of internationally acclaimed projects. The company is committed to excellence in large format images and displays, and so we design and build equipment specifically tuned to the needs of each project.

In 2005 we produced Orbital Map, an educational exhibit for the Royal British Columbia Museum. Combining extreme detail from orbiting satellite data, geo-corrected elevation data, digital animation and live action HD video, it is projected onto a 3D map model the stretches 22 feet to the ceiling.
