Leeds tech company launches new VR service

Business Support | North East | Technology


IT solutions provider, pure technology group (PTG), has announced a new tech service: pureVR.

The company hopes pureVR will support turnover growth of 30% in 2019-20.

pureVR uses multiple Augmented, Assisted, Mixed and Virtual Reality technologies, including Toshiba dynaEdge. Toshiba dynaEdge is an Assistive Reality wearable device, which acts as an intuitive remote assistance tool. It is linked to a Windows 10 wearable computer – integrating with Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams – and aids collaboration between in-house and remote workers.

Wearers have full control over the visibility, recording and schematics functions – allowing them to send real-time updates to staff based at the office, and call for remote support via the glass as required.

Commenting on the tech’s real-life application, PTG’s Group technology solutions manager, Simeon Banks said: “We recently installed the dynaEdge solution for a national engineering and services firm – it blends on-the-job training with classroom learning and can transform the way the business develops apprentices.”

pureVR also incorporates hyperVSN, the world’s first ‘Integrated 3D Holographic Display System’. It combines high-tech holographic projection units with a smart content management platform and is designed to revolutionise the retail, design and exhibition markets with futuristic hologram features.

The third strand of the company’s new VR services has been coded and developed entirely in-house – a project which took seven months to complete. PTG’s Augmented Reality solution for SMEs offers a bespoke HR induction.

Explaining the rationale behind the launch, PTG’s Group COO Cliff Fox said: “We believe that VR has a huge potential to enhance all organisations. It’s far bigger than just a gaming concept. This disruptive tech has the power to remould and improve the world of work as we know it – offering a revolutionary advantage for the education, training, maintenance, field service and retail sectors particularly.”
