IrisVR has today announced a new feature for the company’s virtual reality (VR) software platform which will allow for multi-user conferencing. Multi-User VR Experiences for Prospect Pro will make its public debut at the AIA Conference on Architecture in Orlando, Florida next week.
With Multi-User VR Experiences for Prospect Pro, users will be able to conduct remote or in-person meetings within a real-time, true-to-scale VR environment. This new feature will allow multiple individuals to enter the same 3D model and share a VR walk-through together. The technology is platform agnostic, meaning that users in different head-mounted displays (HMDs) will be able to join the same environment without limitation.
The news comes hot-off-the-heels of Facebook’s social VR programme reveal, Facebook Spaces, which debuted in beta earlier this week. However, while Facebook Spaces is targeting consumer collaboration, Prospect Pro is most definitely designed for enterprise use.
Multi-User VR Experiences for Prospect Pro is targeting HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Google Daydream and Samsung Gear VR. Attendees of the AIA Conference on Architecture will have the opportunity to experience the technology first-hand and walk through SketchUp, Revit and Rhino models with other booth attendees.
The Multi-User VR Experiences for Prospect Pro will be available to the public later in the year. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest VR initiatives from IrisVR.
UPDATE: VRFocus incorrectly stated in the article above that ‘Multi-User VR Experiences for Prospect Pro is targeting HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Google Daydream and Samsung Gear VR‘, however the software will only be made available for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. VRFocus apologises for any inconvenience caused.
