WorldViz releases VR collaboration software Vizible and announces VizBox

Vizible along with VizBox forms a powerful  portable VR presentation tool.

WorldViz has announced the availability of its VR creation and collaboration tool, Vizible. WorldViz had unveiled Vizible at Siggraph last year. WorldViz was supposed to launch the software in October 2017. However, it could launch Vizible to its existing WorldViz customers only in January 2018. Now it is available for all businesses to purchase. The company has also announced VizBox, a portable, all-in-one VR solution that businesses can use to join Vizible collaboration sessions. WorldViz claims that open SeedInvest funding campaign for both products has reached 672% of the initial goal, which is $250,000.

 “Current methods for visualizing complex information such as product designs or architectural designs, are falling short. Businesses are using blueprints and 2D screens to try to extrapolate what a 3D design might look like at scale, and that just doesn’t cut it, especially when the smallest mistake can cost a company millions of dollars,” said Andrew Beall, CEO of WorldViz. “VR provides a better way to communicate that information, and a better means for collaborating around that information, which is why we designed Vizible and its companion product, VizBox.”

VR has come up as a perfect tool for communicating the ideas and product design to the team or the customers. WorldViz has taken all this to a new level with Vizible. Companies looking for cost-effective and more immersive VR solutions can find a powerful presentation system in Vizible. It is very simple to create realtime VR presentation in Vizible and meet your team/clients in secure virtual space. There you can review your model, deliver a sales pitch, show architecture plan to others or may be conduct a real estate walk-through, irrespective of global positions of the participants. It is like setting up a web conference call.
