With HoloLens 2, Microsoft has positioned itself as the market leader in the field of augmented- and mixed reality for enterprise applications. This is primarily because the headset has been optimized technically a lot. The HoloLens 2 is now smaller, lighter, the graphics are better, the usage is easier and the field of vision wider than the previous model a few years ago.
In addition to the hardware, the software and integration into corporate systems is also very important for companies. Thanks to iris recognition and connection to an Azure Active Directory, users can authenticate themselves securely. In addition, with Teams and Dynamics Remote Assist 365, Microsoft offers a solution to support employees remotely.
We also have special experience in using dedicated Azure services for Mixed Reality, especially Azure Spatial Anchors, to persistently locate scenes in the real world. The use of Azure Remote Rendering (ARR) is also very forward-thinking: High-quality, interactive 3D models can be streamed directly to the HoloLens 2 with up to 50 million polygons without loss of detail.
As an official Mixed Reality Partner of Microsoft, we would be happy to advise you on further use cases with the HoloLens 2 in your company – whether for a dedicated solution for your application or an existing product. We also take over the order and delivery of the devices.Learn More
PTC supports companies worldwide with software for technical development, supply chains and manufacturing, up to sales and service. In addition to software in PLM, CAD and IoT (Internet of Things), PTC is also the market leader for augmented reality technology with the products around Vuforia.
Vuforia Studio helps you to convert existing CAD and IoT data into AR-Experiences – without existing knowledge about coding. In this way, employees in production can be supported with by virtual work instructions and information directly in front of the machine. On the other hand, Vuforia Chalk is mainly used in remote maintenance when employees have a problem with operation, repair or maintenance. The live view can be quickly shared on site from the smartphone/tablet with an expert, who can anchor virtual markers directly in the image to real objects and thus point out the exact problem. When it comes to storing knowledge and making it available to other employees, Expert Capture is the right solution to create and record AR guides on site.
No matter what the solution – as a direct partner of PTC, we can provide you with broad knowledge on the appropriate use of PTC-Vuforia software. We are also happy to support you in training courses for PTC products on Microsoft HoloLens 2 or HMT-1 RealWear.Learn More
