Several new upgrades to the training and development platform of corporate virtual reality (VR) solutions provider Pixvana offer a significantly improved experience for enterprise, including the ability to deliver content across multiple headsets and devices for the first time.
SPIN Studio 2.0—the first iteration of which was used by luxury cruise line Seabourn to create and launch a VR training solution for waitstaff—allows organisations to deliver educational content across all devices in the Oculus line, as well as smartphones, tablets and PCs with two-dimensional screens.
Other upgrades include Q&As, quizzing and scavenger hunts, to help educators and developers assess performance and progress, and improve content on the go.
SPIN Studio 2.0 also provides better analytics, including progress monitoring capabilities through the use of data-rich analytic maps, gaze heatmaps and real-time feedback.
Its infrastructure has been further improved and is now capable of rendering data up to 10 times faster than the previous version, and deliver 5.7K maximum streaming and downloading of all content for Oculus headsets.
“SPIN Studio 2.0 simply handles extended reality (XR) media in a better, faster, more efficient manner, offering enterprise-designed features to enhance immersive experiences as well as scale across multiple screens,” commented Beverly Vessella, vice president of product for Pixvana.
She continued: “Now it’s easier than ever for learning and development teams to incorporate XR content into their curriculum with easy content management and distribution tools at their fingertips. Interactive narratives take the learner out of traditional classrooms and into an immersive, 360 degree experience that’s proven to enhance learning.”
Pixvana has also released a free casting solution, SPIN Studio Lite, for organisations that seek a simple way to share high-quality XR video.
SPIN Studio Lite is free for anyone with a headset or web browser. The solution allows creators to upload high-quality XR content to the cloud with straightforward drag-and-drop functionality, as well as cast content to any number of headsets.
The new platform also enables administrators to guide viewers throughout any experience, supporting virtual classrooms and narrated events.
Vessella said: “Sharing content is by far the biggest pain point for XR creators. There’s never been an easier and more efficient way for creators to share their immersive content to groups of all sizes. Simply upload the content, get a code and enter it, then start casting to headsets around the world, no problem.”
