Our flagship product Pacelab WEAVR offers a complete enterprise solution for XR training, which enables customers to build their own immersive training environment.

Extended reality is an umbrella term for technologies that enhance the reality of our physical world with virtual digital objects. Today, the term mainly refers to virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality, but its definition is broad enough to accommodate immersive technologies yet to emerge from a field that is advancing at breakneck speed.


VR, AR, MR — sorry, what's the difference again?

Current XR technologies vary in the degree to which they blend reality and virtuality, and they use specific hardware (HTP Vive, HP Reverb, Microsoft HoloLens, etc.) to provide digitally enhanced experiences. Which XR technology is right for you depends on your objectives and your main target user group.

Virtual Reality

Users are immersed in a fully artificial environment that shuts out the visual portion of the physical world.

Augmented Reality

Virtual objects are superimposed on real environments to provide users with additional contextual information.

Mixed Reality

Virtual objects are merged into real environments, where users can manipulate and interact with them.

More effective training, faster & at lower costs

Immersive training yields significant benefits to any industry sector where active, ongoing development of skills and first-hand, experiential learning are required, particularly industries that deal with complex products or high-risk tasks.

Recent research shows that more than two-thirds of technology and business stakeholders expect XR technology to enter the mainstream in less than five years.

Virtual training & knowledge transfer

In an industrial context, an acute shortage of technical staff and the looming skills gap left by an aging workforce are key drivers for adopting XR technologies to provide a more efficient training and knowledge transfer.

With enterprise adoption forecast to grow to about 70% by 2022, now is the best time to invest in XR technology to stay ahead of the curve. Consult our seasoned team of training experts, software developers and 3D designers to find out how!
