HoloLens and Azure have given wings to virtual design teams
Download case study
Innovative design is a critical element of today’s business. Modern enterprises heavily reply on advanced technology to conduct complex design work across companies, industries, regions, and nations. Based on Microsoft mixed reality and cloud computing technology, Jingteng’s Holologic mixed-reality interactive platform represents the latest innovation in digital design presentation, interaction, and collaboration technology. The platform effectively supports synchronous and asynchronous design, enable designers work on their own projects independently or work together as a team on different aspects of the same project online and in real-time. Since its introduction, Holologic has been broadly accepted by design, architecture, manufacturing, medical, and other leading industries.
Low synergy between design and other teams
PC, design software, email, instant messaging, high-speed data transmission and file sharing has greatly improved designers’ productivity, but collaboration among designers and coordination with IT, construction, and project management remain low. According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the average designer spends at least 40 percent of his or her time on searching and validating useful information.
2D tools cannot effectively show 3D design characteristics
Most design work revolves around 3D models. Limitation of two-dimensional paper and screen make it difficult to visualize abstraction and spatial relativity of 3D objects. Large-scale projects involve multiple designers and groups. Needs for close collaboration often require them to work together side-by-side in the same location, resulting in high project costs.
- Develop, review, and evaluate 3D holographic design individually or as a team from anywhere in the world.
- 360-degree view of 1:1 holographic model from different angles, and use gestures to scale, rotate, and pivot.
- Upload 3D models to the Holologic platform, share draft design, and invite others from inside and outside of the company to participate.
Holologic solution overview
At the core of Jingteng Holologic MR interactive collaboration platform is Microsoft HoloLens and Microsoft Azure. In addition to interactive display of 3D holographic images, this custom-designed industry solution also has built-in cloud-based utilities to support team collaboration, including identity management, rights management, content publishing and sharing, synchronization log, and real-time communications.
