About Digital Essence


Our goal is to enhance visual animation for events and shows by developing innovative software. More precisely, we have the will to democratize the video mapping technique so as to make it easier to reach for fields neglected in reason of its cost and difficulty to manage. Alongside developing HeavyM, we are offering services to professionals who would like to integrate video mapping to their events, their installations or their live shows.

During 2 years, we received the support of the 104factory, the CENTQUATRE-Paris incubator. This cultural centre is a place dedicated to artists from all over the world that offers them the infrastructure they need to thrive but it is also an important structure in the world of innovation dedicated to art.
