IMMERSIVE TECHNOLOGIES: BOSTON'S CLOUDXR SHOWCASE

Posted on 18 May, 2023

Imagine stepping into a virtual realm where colleagues from around the globe can seamlessly collaborate, where geographical barriers vanish, and where productivity knows no bounds.

Multi-user VR opens up a world of possibilities, enabling teams to engage in virtual meetings, brainstorming sessions, and problem-solving activities as if they were in the same room.

Picture the scene; the International Student House in Great Portland Street abuzz with activity at this Boston led event, partnered with industry heavyweights demonstrating the potential of Multi-user Cloud XR.

Our Extended Reality Showcase with NVIDIA and HTC on the 4th of May was specifically tailored for the Industrial Design, Corporate Enterprise and Gaming industries. We powered up our Supermicro MU-CXR machine and experienced it’s use in several enterprise scenarios including:

  • Virtual prototyping for industrial design with Autodesk VRED with multiple VR users in the same instance so they could see and interact with each other as well as the scene
  • Omniverse demo assets consisting of The House and The Warehouse, single user experience
  • A virtual reality demonstration of gaming technology with The Lab - single user experience

The VIVE Focus 3 enterprise grade, high-definition, wireless headsets from HTC displayed the low latency, high fidelity professional grade software - both standalone and omniverse content - to ensure play was as tight as possible to the program running.

EXPERIENCED VETERANS IN VR

Miodrag Relic, Partnerships Manager, Boston, kicked off the show introducing Boston, our partners and of course, the superb hardware underneath it all.

Pete Wilsher, Field Application Engineer, and XR mastermind, said:

"With the creation of CloudXR and our original MU-VR (Multi-User Virtual Reality) solution, we are capable of bringing the best of both worlds together with the MU-CXR – Multi User CloudXR sessions all in a self-contained solution with no strings (or rather cables!) attached.

With the power of current and next generation components and all of our partners, we are proud to give a seamless VR experience and cater to any size deployments from a single user to entire groups, using nearly any traditional, all-in-one or XR capable mobile devices.

These experiences offer so much! Through realistic simulations, professionals can develop new skills, tackle high-stress scenarios, and foster innovation. Whether it's refining workplace designs, accelerating training and onboarding processes, or even replicating physical office spaces for remote workers, the potential is limitless.
