Immersive (XR) collaboration has never been easier with the release of iQ3Connect 2023.6. Performance improvements and device-specific usability updates ensure that all users, whether in a virtual classroom or immersive design review, have an engaging, reliable, and consistent experience using a VR or AR headset, PC, tablet, or mobile device. 360-degree images and videos are now fully supported. Below are some additional details on what’s new.
- Multiuser Collaboration with Mixed Devices (VR, AR, PC, tablet, mobile) – Performance improvements and device usability updates allow a larger number of users to simultaneously collaborate in virtual workspaces from different devices. iQ3Connect automatically adapts the collaborative environment to take advantage of device capabilities and limitations while maintaining a consistent end-user experience for all. For example, when entering AR-mode (in a HoloLens, MagicLeap2, or Tablet/Mobile), the virtual background will disappear for that user, ensuring unobstructed views to the physical space without affecting users on other devices.
- 360 Image and Video Support – View and interact with 360-degree images and videos from any device, whether mobile, tablet, PC, or a VR or AR headset. Create rich, interactive virtual environments, such as virtual tours or training, by combining multiple 360 images or videos with mark-ups, documents, 3D models and more.
- iOS Device Usability – iOS devices such as the iPhone and iPad are now fully supported for iQ3Connect workspaces, meetings, and training experiences. Enhancements to audio and video playback, support for 360-degree images and videos, and performance updates to view and interact with larger 3D models, have been implemented.
