The Covid-19 crisis did not spare Dirty Monitor, which specialises in 3D videos and mapping. Indeed, the Charleroi company is heavily dependent on the demands of the events sector both in Belgium and internationally, which has been forced to slow down due to the epidemic. But activities resumed at the end of this summer, and the Charleroi company is again taking on video projects, mainly from Asia and the Middle East.
During the lockdown in spring, the Charleroi company faced the cancellation of projects in China, Kuwait and Qatar. "We were severely impacted by the worldwide panic caused by the Covid-19 outbreak. We generally carry out four to five projects per month, including two major projects abroad. In the last six months, we were well below that average. Since mid-August, we have received a lot of requests for quotes, project proposals and calls for tenders," explains Arnaud Meulemeester, International Business Developer at Dirty Monitor.
Located for several years now in the buildings at Quai 10, a cultural venue on the banks of the River Sambre dedicated to cinema and video games, the Dirty Monitor team has returned to the studios. "We did a big show on a cultural centre for Saudi Arabia's National Day, which was broadcast on television thanks to a drone recording. We are again being contacted for projects in China, immersive exhibitions like the ones we created on Vincent Van Gogh and Claude Monet", he states.
The company is therefore mainly working abroad at the moment. "We are mainly being contacted for projects in the Middle East, China and the USA. We are working much less than before in Belgium and Europe, where there is still a great deal of uncertainty about the development of the pandemic," Arnaud Meulemeester explains.
