Posted by Thomas Serrurier on Mar 8, 2024 2:47:36 PM

In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, the need for seamless remote collaboration has never been more crucial, especially for professionals in industries like manufacturing, architecture, and design. Recognizing this demand, TechViz is thrilled to announce that our groundbreaking XR Collaboration service in Japan is now live in Japan, operated by NTT Communications / Docomo Business. This revolutionary service marks a significant leap forward in virtual collaboration, offering professionals unparalleled efficiency, productivity, and ROI.

Enhancing Efficiency and Productivity

Traditional web conferencing tools have long been the go-to solution for remote collaboration. However, they often fall short when it comes to conveying complex 3D models effectively. TechViz's XR Collaboration service changes the game by enabling hosts to seamlessly share 3D CAD or BIM models with up to five remote participants, all in real-time and rendered in the Cloud.

This immersive experience not only enhances engagement but also allows participants to navigate freely within the virtual scene, gaining a deeper understanding of the project at hand. By eliminating the need for lengthy explanations and reducing misinterpretations, professionals can make faster, more informed decisions, ultimately saving valuable time and resources.

Optimizing User Experience

In addition to its robust functionality, TechViz's XR Collaboration service prioritizes user experience, ensuring a seamless and intuitive interface akin to popular platforms like Teams or Webex.
The service's specific scheduling portal offers a user-friendly interface, making it easy for professionals to book meetings, manage invitations, and access rendering instances on the Cloud—all within a familiar and intuitive environment. By prioritizing ease of use and accessibility, TechViz ensures that professionals can leverage the full capabilities of the XR Collaboration service without the need for extensive training or technical expertise. With a focus on user-centric design, TechViz empowers industry professionals to embrace virtual collaboration effortlessly, enhancing productivity and collaboration across teams and projects.

Maximizing ROI

One of the most significant benefits of TechViz's XR Collaboration service lies in its ability to maximize ROI for professionals in various industries. By streamlining communication and collaboration processes, teams can accelerate project timelines and bring products to market faster. With TechViz's advanced technology, modifications made on the 3D model are rendered instantly, facilitating real-time feedback and iteration.

Additionally, the service's remote rendering solution leverages Cloud servers to ensure smooth streaming of immersive content to every participant, regardless of their location or device. This accessibility not only enhances collaboration but also reduces the need for costly travel and physical prototyping, resulting in substantial cost savings for businesses.

A Game-Changer for Industry Professionals

TechViz's XR Collaboration service represents a significant innovation for professionals in industries such as manufacturing, architecture, and design. By providing a platform for immersive virtual collaboration, TechViz empowers teams to overcome geographical barriers, streamline workflows, and unlock new levels of creativity.

Whether it's visualizing complex 3D models, conducting design reviews, or collaborating on prototypes, TechViz's immersive web conferencing service revolutionizes the way professionals work together.

CATIA V5 to VR: Enhance your CAD design process with no data conversion

Posted by Sandrine Lasserre on Jul 4, 2023 5:43:09 PM

Looking for a way to enhance your design/engineering/manufacturing process when working with CATIA V5 models? A great solution lies in 1:1 scale visualization with Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). These immersive technologies close the gap between the 2D screen of your CAD application and the physical world, and allow industries to exploit the power of digital prototyping as a competitive advantage.

And it gets even better when no 3D data is translated from your native CATIA V5 application to the VR environment.
