How do you share created VR experiences? How do you keep a VR experience updated? These are some challenges users face when creating VR experiences.

Solution

VR experiences created in SimLab Composer can be stored as single VR package files. This makes it more practical for creators to email their VR experience or upload it on Dropbox. Also we developed a special distribution mechanism, SimLab Cloud Showroom. It makes it easier to share and update VR experiences, and it’s free to download.

Barrier

Security of 3D models, is a concern that comes naturally when sharing 3D models with others. Without security measures in place, private models can be easily stolen. 3D Models are important assets, and are of great value to design companies. So, what kind of access will be given to VR experience creators? and VR experience users?

Solution

SimLab Composer makes it easier for creators to develop VR experiences in house, or by a 3ʳᵈ party. With the large set of supported formats, you do not need to share native file formats with VR experience designers outside of your organization. For sharing VR experiences with outside users, we support a proprietary file format not shared and not available to the public to reduce the possibility of reverse engineering.

Barrier

Our minds are used to fast real work responses and changes in real life. Being inside a VR experience with low refresh rates, makes people feel uneasy about the situation and causes motion sickness.

Solution

SimLab Composer VR experiences are optimized to provide high quality graphics, and fast refresh rates to reduce motion sickness and make VR an even more enjoyable experience for the user .
