StudioCruz has over ten years' experience of developing exhibits for trials and hearings, including precision illustration, animation, and video. Digital exhibits are demonstrably accurate in dimension and duration. They can also be interactive - in other words, able to change their viewpoint and detail in response to the flow of argument in court. We have the same length of experience of mission critical courtroom projection using duplicated laptops, projectors, and software.

Developed in Photoshop, Illustrator, and Rhino for maximum editability during the case depending on argument each day.
