What is Mixed Reality anyway?

Here’s an explainer →

The real answer is – it doesn’t really matter. Focus on what you need and we’ll help with the technology mix.

Our Consulting and Development Teams have been working in the Real World and mixing these technologies with operational equipment, replica interfaces and enterprise IT for nearly 20 years. We’re excited to learn about your business, your problems and help work out how best to employ these concepts to break through your limitations.

Cross Reality

XR is a generally accepted umbrella term for all the AR/MR/VR and other variations sure to come. Sounds cooler too.

Virtual Reality

VR replaces the Real world with a Virtual one and uses physcial movement and sensors to navigate the synthetic world.

Augmented Reality

AR layers virtual content over the Real World. True AR understands the spatial and physical world through its many sensors.

Mixed Reality

MR mixes up Augmented and Virtual Reality to put rich Virtual content into the Real world and helps them work together.

Microsoft Mixed Reality

Microsoft’s Mixed Reality platforms provide a gateway to use all of its AI, Machine Learning, Translation, BI, Dynamics and Office functionality in a new way. 

As well as some truly beautiful immersive experiences, we can unlock company and team capabilities by making data and intelligent tools available at the point of need-out in the workplace.

Technology as Strategy

Even before COVID, companies were moving towards empowering Front Line Workers to a level equal to or exceeding their Information Workers as a core  business strategy.

COVID made it essential to get to grips wth Remote Working and, since nearly everyone became (and may remain) a remote worker, many have started to realise the benefits this change can bring.

Enabled by a Transformational technology Stack

The Microsoft Mixed Reality Stack is a ready-to-deploy set of advanced technologies integrated over a secure Cloud infrastructure that already delivers the Office infrastructure for most corporations.

Azure Mixed Reality Services

Unlock what every human is an expert at—the three-dimensional, physical world around us—with Azure mixed reality services. Help people create, learn, and collaborate more effectively by capturing and surfacing digital information within the context of their work and world. Bring 3D to mobile devices, headsets, and other untethered devices. Using Azure, help ensure that your most sensitive information is protected.

AZURE SPATIAL ANCHORS

Azure Remote Rendering

Experience 3D without compromise to fuel decisions and design efficiency.

Experience 3D without compromise to fuel decisions and design efficiency. Remote Rendering is a service that renders high-quality, interactive 3D content and streams it to your devices in real time.   Remote Rendering uses powerful GPU machines in Azure to render the most complex models and stream them in real-time.

AZURE DIGITAL TWINS

Model the physical world and relationship between people, places and devices.

Build digital twins that offer spatial context to the IoT devices that they have connected, by modeling the relationships between people, places and those devices.  It’s a powerful component of mixed reality solutions. Accessing building and IoT data can be difficult in complex and active environments.
