MR content authoring platform, WorkLink, now supports Microsoft HoloLens. Scope AR showcased the new HoloLens functionality today at Microsoft Build 2017. The integration provides WorkLink users with a completely hands-free MR experience; an essential step for remote workers trying to repair a piece of equipment or factory floor workers assembling complex machinery.
“Through its built-in depth camera and sophisticated tracking technology, HoloLens is one of the best wearable devices for hands-free use of the MR applications so many organizations are seeking,” said Scott Montgomerie, CEO of Scope AR. “With WorkLink now supporting the device, enterprises finally have a simple and easy way to digitise visual instructions at scale - empowering all workers to become their own expert - and begin to realise the full potential of MR.”
Non-Technical MR Solution
Even non-technical HoloLens users will now be able to create their own MR-based step-by-step instructional content with nearly the same ease as creating a PowerPoint presentation. This enables organizations to quickly leverage and adapt MR across several facets of their business including training, repair, manufacturing and IT without having to create an application from scratch, which ultimately leads to improved employee efficiency, reduced downtime, increased safety records, decreased travel costs and better maintenance.
Worklink supports untethered, markerless MR content and digital animations within a complete platform for data generation, feedback and analytics for complete compliance assurance. The platform is also the first fully agnostic authoring solution on the market to feature cross-platform publishing on Android, iOS and Windows simultaneously, allowing organisations to use their device of choice.
All current WorkLink subscribers now have access to the new HoloLens support, and all existing WorkLink instructions projects can be easily updated to take advantage of the device.
If you’re at Microsoft Build, Scope AR will be demonstrating WorkLink on HoloLens at booth #204.
