Augmented reality (AR) solutions specialist Scope AR, has announced the official launch of its enterprise-focused video calling solution Remote AR for Microsoft HoloLens.
Designed specifically with business customers in mind, Remote AR is the company’s remote assistance AR application that enables real-time, remote collaboration at companies such as Lockheed Martin, Siemens and Eaton.
With Microsoft HoloLens’ hands-free, gesture controlled interface field technicians can use the AR headset to connect to a remote expert with greater freedom and clarity of communication, being able to receive assistance and perform tasks with improved fluidity.
“Remote AR was designed from the ground up to support enterprise needs of getting expert knowledge to workers, when and where it’s needed, by allowing users to select their device of choice, whether it’s a smartphone, a tablet, or now, Microsoft HoloLens,” said Scott Montgomerie, CEO and co-founder of Scope AR in a statement. “We’re seamlessly integrating the latest technologies, like Microsoft HoloLens, into our solutions so organizations can focus on the work at hand, secure in their knowledge that they can take advantage of AR today and deploy the best devices for their workforce.”
Features of Remote AR include live video streaming, voice, 3D animation, screen sharing, whiteboarding, world-locked annotations and cross-platform AR live support.
Because of the cross-platform functionality, Remote AR allows a user to connect and collaborate with an expert in real-time from any iOS, Android or Windows smart device or Windows desktop. Said expert can use AR to overlay digital content onto the real world view of what the user is pointing their camera at to more intuitively walk them through a task or help diagnose and resolve a problem.
In the run up to launch Scope AR has been adding plenty of improvements to the AR app, including markerless tracking and ARKit support. Remote AR isn’t the company’s first foray onto HoloLens having created the Worklink app as a means of training employees.
