What we do
We are a dedicated XR systems integrator. XR is all we do, rather than something that we offer as part of a wider service. All of our staff have extensive XR experience and have worked in this space with a number of world-renowned clients.
We hold a number of strong relationships with core technology providers, especially NVIDIA, with whom we are preferred partners. We have been working with NVIDIA CloudXR predating its launch and continue to work with cutting and bleeding edge technology.
Using our experience and specially selected partner ecosystem, we design bespoke solutions using the latest GPU and emerging software technologies with high performance servers to deliver data centre grade, high performance environments.
We combine these environments with the latest 5G stand-alone and mobile network technologies from various telcos to deliver highly immersive XR experiences to enterprise, broadcast and educational customers.
This will very soon include the wider public.
Working with multiple head mounted display vendors, we integrate XR software SDKs to create new functionality in a new ecosystem and allow remote rendering of the XR content on our high performance platforms.
