WorldViz announced in mid-November a collaborative virtual-reality communication platform. The platform, code named “Skofield” and currently in beta-testing, will allow presenters to drop elements (such as a part rendering) into an editor, set proximity triggers, define which objects are interactive and insert PDFs and PowerPoint slides.
"It is our intent to have many of our core customers, including Rockwell Collins and Lockheed Martin, in the beta program for Skofield,” says WorldViz CEO Andy Beall.
Any company can register to become an early user of Skofield by registering for approval.
Details and specifications:
- Pricing not yet announced
- Oculus Rift and HTC Vive Supported
- Available as a cloud-based solution but can be set up on a company’s servers
Rockwell Collins currently uses WorldViz’s Virtual Reality Software “Vizard” and Oculus Rift DK2 3-D goggles for its developing maintenance training application.
