Startup Turns Google VR180 Capture Technology into a Simple, High-Def Way for Construction Teams to Collaborate
Today, Visual Vocal launches Mobile Authoring, the easiest way to create immersive, sharable AR/VR content from a phone. Construction teams can now produce high-resolution experiences on-site in under two minutes, using any iOS or Android phone to deliver actionable insights on jobsite progress.
Mobile Authoring captures real-world environments at human scale, using a combination of Google VR180 technology and Visual Vocal’s proprietary annotation tools, to drastically simplify the AR/VR creation process. Regardless of their experience with AR, VR or BIM technology, users can create an immersive message, called a “Vv.” Once created, this content can be quickly shared with team members or stakeholders via mobile phone and/or VR viewer. A Vv can also easily be entered into any jobsite tracking tool such as Unearth and others using a globally unique 7-digit code called a Vv ID.
Mobile Authoring, a first-to-market technology, expands Visual Vocal’s previous capabilities, which allowed users to create content through the importation of real-world captures and 360 renders from industry-standard CAD or BIM products. With the launch of this release, Visual Vocal is also announcing native on-phone support for cameras such as the Lenovo Mirage, which leverage Google’s new VR180 technology.
