OMD Dusseldorf creates Mobile Augmented Reality for Renault using Blippar

New and innovative mobile augmented reality advertising brings users 360° experience of the Renault Captur

Düsseldorf – 9 Jul, 2018 – In order to promote the Renault Captur model OMD Dusseldorf is using an innovative augmented reality ad in Germany. The ad takes the user on their mobile devices to both the inside of the crossover car model and shows the individual surrounding of the user as the surrounding environment of the car for the first time in Germany. The purely programmatic augmented reality implementation will be online until the middle of July and is part of the digital and social media measures of the current Renault Captur campaign. The incumbent media agency OMD Düsseldorf has developed the so-called Augmented Reality Digital Placement experience in close cooperation with Blippar (London), the leading technology provider in the field of augmented reality and computer vision technology.

The form of advertising is used in Germany for the first time and enables the mobile user to navigate inside the Renault Capture using a 360-degree view. If the advertising medium is also granted access to the user’s smartphone camera, the own real environment also becomes part of the ad. This results in a comprehensive augmented reality experience for the user in the interior of the vehicle, as well as in its environment. In the interior of the Captur model, the user also has the opportunity to view special features of the car and gain access further information.

“Bringing augmented reality to mobile devices through a programmatic campaign is a fascinating way of enabling consumers to experience the product in a totally individual way. This concept is an important piece of our marketing to individuals strategy ensuring that we reach the right user with the right ad at the right time”, explains Christian Lenz, Director Client Service at OMD Düsseldorf.

Mikela Eskenazi, Blippar’s Chief Commercial Officer, adds: “Using this technology, we’re excited to help Renault’s consumers have a full, immersive experience of the vehicle by just a single tap. This is part of Blippar’s core mission to change the way people interact with the world around them, and to bridge the gap between the digital and the physical worlds.”

Saatchi & Saatchi Düsseldorf is responsible for the creation.
