Antycip Simulation – a virtual reality (VR) and 3D immersive solutions integrator – has announced the opening of a new dedicated Regional Demo Centre in its Adderbury office in the UK, following the recent launch of its first Regional Demo Centre in Saronno, Italy.
The facility has the ability to demonstrate a full range of simulation, visualisation, training and VR solutions, putting the company’s expertise under one roof for the benefit of current and future customers. The state-of-the-art Demo Centre (a.k.a. The Hub) was created in partnership with projector manufacturer Barco, and comes equipped with a single face VR CAVE, a power wall and a spherical display.
On the opening of this new facility, Chris Waldron, UK Regional Manager, at Antycip Simulation, enthused: “We’re thrilled to open Antycip Simulation’s second Regional Demo Centre, in our UK offices. Customers can now visit us for demonstrations, training, testing and reviews in ways which were not possible in the past, enabling us to be an even better partner to them in finding the perfect solution for their project requirements.”
It will help Antycip Simulation address the growing requirement for VR technologies in the design, academic and engineering sectors, with display solutions that are complemented by a portfolio of software solutions for simulation, analysis and digital rendering.
Commenting on the collaboration with Barco, Antycip Simulation’s CEO Michel Pronier said: “Our sincere thanks to our partner Barco for its support in the development of this unique facility. The Demo Centre is the culmination of our long history of working together on a broad range of projects all over the world and an expression of our commitment to meeting customer needs and requirements.”
The VR CAVE station features a Barco F90 projector and and comes fitted with Vicon tracking cameras. It can also be integrated with a HTC Vive to demonstrate collaborative working in VR across multiple platforms and locations.
“We are very proud to introduce this second Regional Demo Centre, a natural next step which brings together our 20 years of expertise working on a broad range of cutting edge projects,” continues Pronier. “It reinforces our reputation as an experienced partner that offers all the necessary guarantees to ensure the success of our customer projects. As an independent systems integrator, we pride ourselves on unlocking the potential in our strong partner relationships whilst keeping a resolute focus on providing solutions that are the very best fit for our customer’s project parameters and needs. The Demo Centre will undoubtedly strengthen our capability to deliver on this promise.”
Last month VRFocus reported on Antycip Simulation providing automotive supplier Hutchinson with two new immersive VR rooms to allow its designers and engineers to work in a virtual environment to manipulate 3D objects.
