WorldViz's new product highlights the potential overlay of virtual reality into multi-site communications. Such an advancement should have clear benefits in complex sectors such as advanced industrials and healthcare.
Unified communication is evolving and is being increasingly adopted through the SME to enterprise spectrum, an area we are currently following very closely.
WorldViz, a behind-the-scenes virtual reality company that's been working on large-scale VR solutions for the enterprise and industrial sectors, just announced its new platform for business communication. The project, codenamed "Skofield", allows remote users to make cross-platform presentations in VR. WorldViz describes Skofield as a VR version of the popular online video conferencing tool GoToMeeting. Instead of remotely viewing Powerpoint presentations with voiceover and video calling integration, Skofield users virtually interact with the presentation materials and one another. For this reason, it's poised to be particularly effective in presenting complex, interactive objects and settings.
