GE Software came to First Person to help them share a story that will become very familiar to everyone in the near future. The Internet has vastly changed the way people communicate locally and even globally, but that is only the beginning. GE calls this new innovation "The Industrial Internet" and it will change the way many businesses operate very soon. With the aid of more available sensor technology, the ability to manage big data and analytics, as well as people at work the industrial internet can bring efficiency to a whole new level. At the core of this are brilliant machines that use this new sensor technology to create a wealth of data. How are all these machines and this amount of data managed? That is where GE Software comes in.
GE has created a modular software platform called Predix for developers that can work in multiple industries and at all levels of control. Whether you are a technician on the ground or a regional manager you have a great amount of vision and control of the system and machines in your network. At the surface of all this big data and analytics is a well-designed modern user interface, which focuses the user on what is important.
The primary goal of First Person's cooperation with GE Software was to tell a real world story that takes place in the world of The Industrial Internet. The second task would be to show how their software platform would harness this technology. The third video was an even deeper dive into what the system worked and what this could mean to developers.
These were big stories to tell, and they had to convey a great amount of information to the very wide audience that will be working in The Industrial Internet very soon. First Person partnered with GE to work through the concepts and scripting phase to focus each project on its message. Over the course of the three projects many modelers, texture artists, and animators came together to develop the look and feel that spans over all the finished videos. The handmade look and grittiness of the visuals conveys that Predix is not only advanced technology, but is in the field with people at work. These videos were a great collaborative effort with GE Software and will continue to educate viewers on the great things GE can do now and in the near future.
