“Lifteye attempts to give elevators a live virtual window” by Dave Lee
We are glad to say that LiftEye TM has been mentioned in the new issue of Elevatori Magazine (Jan-Feb), one of the leading international journals in the vertical transportation industry, in the section ‘Tecniques’, article ‘A virtual window in the lift’.
"Infine, l'anno che abbiamo appena lasciato alle spalle ha visto proporre soluzioni innovative quali «il primo ascensore al mondo senza funi» ( pag. 44 ) o la finestra virtuale aperta sul mondo… dall'interno di una cabina ( pag. 72 )
Finally, the year which has just ended saw innovative solutions such as ‘the first elevator in a world without ropes’ ( page 44 ) or the virtual window open onto the world… from within a car ( page 72 ) – Elevatori 2015/Jan-Feb, Preface p. 1"

In October 2013 LiftEye was first showcased and received incredibly positive feedback at one of the world’s most prestigious trade shows for elevators and escalators – Interlift, which took place in Augsburg, Germany. The trade fair was attended by nearly 19 thousands architects and industry experts from around the world. LiftEye was recognized (Interlift 2013 Catalogue) as a one of a kind virtual window view elevator system that has established itself as a new product category in the elevator industry: namely Lifteye as an elevator equipment type appears between Landing door devices and Lifts without machine room in Products search index. One may even expect the word ‘lifteye’ gain a status similar to the word ‘xerox’, which over time became a synonym for the process of photocopying.
Both installation and commissioning took just 6 days before the trade fair opened. Needless to say, the job was thoroughly planned in advance.
Although the travel height of elevator in the booth at the Augsburg Interlift Trade show was less then 10 meters, all of the main LiftEye features were carefully performed and the installation played a role of a Test Card: the performance of 3D picture at low heights is the most critical for the system.
The LiftEye consists of an original, patent-pending structure, a small number of specifically designed cameras permanently fixed on outer walls, computing devices, and a high definition video monitor wall in the elevator car.
The panoramic views are captured by the small number of fixed cameras installed outside the building and sophisticated software then generates a photo-realistic virtual 3D images based on the video from these cameras.
The actual view, displayed on the monitor corresponds with the actual altitude of the elevator car, as measured by a height sensor. The display wall may be switched to a view from another location equipped with LiftEye and vice-versa - the present LiftEye video data may be transmitted to other locations in real time.
