From Photomontage to Videomontage!

New media does not stand still for long.

In order to support the move from photography to video in engagement and communication, Linknode are launching our unique TrueViewVisuals Videomontage service.

We know that in the future, immersive realities will have a significant impact on our lives, augmenting our world with information curated for us by Artificial Intelligence focused on interests, time and location.  Our professional tools for understanding change through planning are in for the journey, but for communication and sharing of plans and designs we realised we need to provide something more, something unique and engaging.

Our social communication is a benchmark for what is expected in 2017.  Twitter, Facebook and Instagram are increasingly video focused, supported by new standards in camera recording, broadband capacity and user expectations.

As a case study, earlier this month we took a road trip up to the North East of Scotland and captured some imagery of a planned project.

“The videomontages produced by TrueViewVisuals are not only innovative, but look stunning also. The HD video allows for a greater appreciation of a development site, giving new perspectives and a realism that cannot be paralleled with static photography.” 

Alasdair Warnock, Green Cat Renewables

This builds on our strengths and capabilities, tested and used for five years in landscape assessment.  Using real-world video as the basis of our production we can deliver more realistic, faster and easier to update video for use in public engagement, campaigns and sales.

If you have any queries regarding these new features, or you would like to chat further about how we can help create amazing videomontages, please give us a call on 0141 374 2741 or email

Introducing TrueViewVisuals – the new visualisation service from Linknode

We can help you visualise anything, anywhere

Linknode are experts in real-world 3D visualisation – giving you new ways to communicate your projects to clients and the public.

Our visualisations are unique and different from static exhibition boards or gamified CGI renderings – making the visuals both realistic and trustworthy leading to better community engagement.

Following our work with the Future Cities Catapult on the #FutureOfPlanning project we are excited to introduce the world’s first on-site visualisation service for planning and design;


Our planning consultancy work comes from 6-years of mobile visual impact assessment software across renewables, housing, grid and architecture/BIM which has been used on hundreds of projects across the UK by planners, developers and landscape architects.

Where there is the opportunity to engage within the real-world – to provide context and relevance to design – we excel.

Seeing is Believing

We deliver services with live on-site visuals or recorded media. This is not isolated virtual reality, this is dynamic mixed-reality and output.  Naturally realistic, always up-to-date and without the need to re-digitise the world, giving cost-effective visualisations solutions across project life-cycles from scoping, through design review to planning engagement.

Our services include;


Real-time videos showing the impact of the development project, with various ways of capture, our videomontages are ideal for community and public engagement.  Read more on our website
