Our clients are European museums, historical locations and archaeological sites. We work on projects and tasks that capture the imagination. During this phase we cannot publicize all our news yet, but the Battle of Waterloo is one of the projects that went live in June 2016. Contact us and we will be able to tell you more.
Your museum or historical location forms the basis for the experience offered by LiveTour5D. We work with our proprietary â€śExperience-Tâ€ť principle. Interaction between the already available information and an entirely new experience, ensures a wonderful intensification of the visitor experience. People leave feeling like they truly experienced the time period or event in question. All of a sudden your story will have multiple dimensions. We would like to tell you more about Experience-T.
At the request of the Museum and visit centre Memorial 1815 in Waterloo, LiveTour5D created the impressive battle in Virtual Reality. In a 6 square kilometre area, 180.000 soldiers aided by 40.000 horses and 1.500 canons fought an intense battle. The British-German coalition led by the Duke of Wellington managed to beat Napoleon de Bonaparte.
Since the launch on 17th June 2016 thousands of visitors have already enjoyed the 3-minute view using specially adapted headsets like virtual binoculars. The â€ś1815 Experienceâ€ť has drawn widespread interest from the press and the vast majority of users have rated the service as â€śvery goodâ€ť to â€śexcellentâ€ť.
We gave visitors to the Colosseum in Rome a taster of the power of VR by LiveTour5D. Check out the reactions here:

Jean-Pierre van Lin is the director and initiator of LiveTour5D. "The virtual experience that we offer, gives real depth to historical facts. Everything falls into place."
The career of Jean-Pierre van Lin is all about creating an experience. He was responsible for the marketing of Guinness beer for a long time and proceeded to do the same for the SABMiller brewery. In both functions he dealt with the 'customer experience' on a daily basis. "Drinking a glass of beer becomes an experience the moment you can add more depth, by providing a perfectly styled bar and the right atmosphere, just as we did at Guinness." After his work in the brewing world, he developed the customer experience for Circle, a chain of private hospitals in England. "In this case I went for the feeling of comfort and luxury, experienced during a stay in a nice hotel or on a business class plane trip." Jean-Pierre then went on to become responsible for the shopper experience and in-store advertising for the English supermarket chain Tesco.
Seven years ago, more or less by accident, Jean-Pierre visited the location where in 1746 the Battle of Culloden took place. Only a plaque remained to remember people of the Battle. "I closed my eyes and tried to image the chaos, the noise and the image of this Battle." The visit turned out to be a 'defining moment'. "There I decided to study the latest Virtual Reality technologies and as of that moment I started working on a dream that turned into reality. The ultimate customer experience. Time travel."
