What is Portal Design Services?
Portal Design Services provides design professionals with creative and innovative solutions that are both original and technologically advanced. Portal specializes in WYSIWYG annd Vivien Software products, and pairs this technology with inventive design ideas. Through the use of technology Portal can produce an accurate, photo-realistic, three dimensional simulation of any event. Everything from mechanical engineering and electrical plots to digital video and still images from multiple views, scenes, and angles is utilized to create a dependable rendering of what your event will look like. Portal Design is a full service resource, and can take care of all your event needs from lighting to production, from concept to reality.

How do you create the Simulation process?
The process begins by creating a 3-D, scale computer model of your venue, based on the venue's dimensions and details. This model is then endowed with visual effects including lighting, lasers, and video. When all these elements have been added and the environment is complete, the model is integrated with real-time control commands and systems. You can now program and view your design just as accurately as if you were on site with the production. This model can be viewed in different outputs, including digital video, 3D animation, still picture laser prints in high-resolution color, and large format mechanical plots.

How does the 3D animation work?
The animation process is achieved through the digital compilation of photo renderings. After the event has been programmed and camera angles have been chosen, a realistic and three dimensional animation of your event is created.

Why Use Portal Design Services?
The advantage of using Portal Design is enhancing the quality of your event while reducing the cost. Through realistic computer simulation, you can make changes in design and production before any physical work takes place. Through the use of technology, Portal can make changes and improve on the most complex and creative of events, all while still in pre-production, saving you the expense of making such changes later.

Why use PDS?
PDS enhances the quality of your event while reducing the cost. Through computer simulation, you can make changes in design and production before any physical work takes place. With technology, PDS can make changes and improve on the most complex and creative of events, all while still in pre-production, saving you from incurring unnecessary expenses.

What if I already have a Drawing of the show of venue?
Portal can again save you time and money by using any CAD or modeling files you might already have. Once we have your files, we can add any other elements and put the finishing touches on your event and provide you with a realistic simulation, the same as if we had started from scratch.

What Kind of Training Does Portal Design Services provide?
Portal Design is an authorized WYSIWYG and Vivien Software trainer with five systems to use in training. Portal is also qualified to train in any area of lighting, laser, programming and design.
