3D excavator introducing the machine control systems







Novatron’s machine control systems assists an excavator driver with accurate data. We created a flashy instructional video as an introduction to machine control systems.


Novatron’s instructional material sets itself apart from wooden online courses. Our starting point was to make a visually appealing instructional video that would double as a marketing video for Novatron’s high-end technology.

The aim of this concise video was to give a comprehensive overview of the machine control functions and explain the differences between 2D and 3D machine controls.


We chose to use 3D graphics because they are expressive and unusual for an instructional video. The look inspired by Novatron’s brand is minimalistic and elegant. The realistic excavator model helps the viewer perceive proportions and the clear infographics support the narrator’s message. 3D surroundings highlights the differences between machine control styles, and demonstrates the workings of the technology from both the excavator’s and the driver’s points of view.

“Karu Films’s Vilja’s insights on how to represent each aspect and Karu’s 3D know-how made it possible to create new content for our training courses. The video has been praised for its clarity by our staff, clients, and resellers around the globe. Despite the tight schedule, the end result was amazing!”
