Mixed reality is the combination of AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality). At enterprise level, it is used to add another dimension to product design and visualization. As a potential outcome of the process, and important part of industry 4.0, additive manufacturing is often linked to explorations of AR, VR and mixed reality.
Verizon opens 5G incubator in the heart of NYC’s ‘Silicon Alley,’ announces initial participants. Alley, powered by Verizon co-working space launches programs for start-ups and academic technology developers, providing full access to Verizon’s 5G technology.
Powerful visualization tools and purpose-built applications open up a new frontier in project development. In a meeting room in BGC Engineering’s Toronto Bay Street offices, Matthew Lato, a geotechnical engineer with the company, put on a Microsoft HoloLens. Slowly, he moved his head slightly up, then down, then to the side, then pinched the air with his fingers. It seemed as if he was performing mime but in reality, he was clicking the menu of the tiny yet powerful computer wrapped around his head and loading 3D holographic models onto the headset.
Mixed reality developer Arvizio has updated its MR Studio software suite to integrate processing of 3D light detection and ranging (LiDAR) point clouds. The new capability makes the enterprise collaboration software for Microsoft HoloLens an attractive solution for architecture, engineering, and construction functions, as well as mining, oil, and gas industries. These industries typically use LiDAR point clouds to construct 3D models sites spanning several square miles.
Arvizio’s MR Studio platform is an enterprise solution for building mixed-reality experiences from 3D data and sharing them with stakeholders for real-time collaboration. Though it may sound like a lot of other mixed-reality platforms you’ve heard of, there are a few important features that set it apart. It offers you the tools to build your own AR experiences without learning to program, pull 3D data of many different types stored in multiple databases, and serve huge amounts of visual information to your AR devices and tablets without loss in resolution. Oh, and it’s optimized for handling point clouds, too.
HoloLens developer Arvizio has expanded its collaboration suite of tools for enterprises with a device that can stream and record mixed reality experiences in high-definition for local and remote audiences. Launched earlier this year, MR Studio enables enterprises to created mixed reality experiences and present content between multiple HoloLens users in the same location. Remote audiences are able to view the same content via devices running Windows or Android through a dedicated app or a secure browser link.
Augmented and mixed reality developer Arvizio is working on a suite of software solutions for enterprises that will extend HoloLens capabilities as a full-fledged collaboration and conferencing tool. The company will demonstrate its Mixed Reality Studio suite to attendees at the Augmented World Expo, which begins later this month in Santa Clara, California.
Arvizio offers the industry’s first mixed reality server platform offering real time collaboration and advanced visualization. Lidar, raster, vector and other types of data can all be integrated into the platform. Holographic collaboration allows 3D images to be viewed by many team members each with their own unique viewing perspective and the seamless integration of holographic computing and video communications creates a unique experience for sharing real world visual information and augmented reality data among team members. 3D Visualization World interviewed Jonathan Reeves, CEO at Arvizio to learn more about the newly founded company and the technology innovation it is bringing to market.
Augmented and Mixed Reality offer many unique opportunities to improve the overall efficiency, productivity, accuracy and even safety of many functions across a broad range of industries. Arvizio works with clients across a range of vertical markets to bring the benefits of Mixed Reality to their businesses. The future begins now and Arvizio provides the enterprise class platform required to move your business forward.
Mixed reality is the most recently introduced form of artificial reality and as such there is often some confusion in the minds of customers regarding virtual, augmented and mixed realities. In broad terms the industry definitions are as follows:
