Scalable's suite of software solutions are implicitly designed for Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR).
Our experience with VR started with initial installations in 2006. We are currently calibrating many of the worlds most advanced AR installations. We offer solutions from simple corner CAVEs or 1x3 curved displays to traditional planar CAVEs and the most complex 70 projector fully immersive VR rooms.
As the market matures, VR Theaters are becoming ever more common. The recent push for content to drive Head Mounted Displays (HMD) has driven awareness that Virtual Reality is much more than personal viewing in an HMD. In fact, multi-projector immersive displays for group viewing of VR is a fast growing segment of our business for applications such as a virtual walk-through of a new building using Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools like AutoDesk Revit™. In this setting users rely on face-to-face interaction with colleagues for collaboration and thus HMDs are not an option.
The solution is found in immersive display solutions that fill the Field Of View (FOV) of the group of users. Solutions of this type have traditionally been referred to as Cave Automated Virtual Environments or CAVEs. CAVE technology provides a “viewer-centered” experience where the users are free to look around the 3D scene at will with no predefined path or script.
Historically this immersive display technology required clusters of computers and special software. Fortunately, recent developments with GPU technology coupled with investments driven by the HMDs VR craze has resulted in exciting new solutions for group viewing of 3D contents in immersive, wide FOV planar and dome screened environments. Scalable provides technology that enables these emerging solutions and we currently have partnerships with many of the industry leading providers of VR solutions and systems.
