FARO Technologies, Inc., company in 4D digital reality solutions, announces its strategic partnership with HOLOGATE's enterprise division HGXR, developers of high-end extended reality (XR) solutions for training and simulation.
For the first time, HGXR systems will integrate FARO digital scanning technology. The integration will enable anything from objects and infrastructure to real-life situations and scenarios to be scanned and simulated in photo-real VR as digital twins, offering customers enhanced training and greater customization potential.
HGXR offers full-service virtual reality training and simulation solutions for enterprises and is a division of HOLOGATE, a global media company, and leader in turnkey extended reality solutions for entertainment with more than 450 locations and 16 million users worldwide.
With digital twins HGXR systems users can visualize and simulate any real object, environment or situation in the virtual space. This is technology for organizations needing to digitally capture a situation or infrastructure for any time review, evaluation and training—such as process optimization on the factory floor.
“We are delighted to announce this partnership with FARO which is an incredible enhancement to our training and simulation offers,” says Leif Petersen, CEO and founder of HOLOGATE/HGXR. “FARO's expertise in the digital scanning and imaging field directly complements our virtual solutions and enables us to further adapt our XR training and simulation applications to meet our customers' needs.”
“We are pleased to be working with HGXR in a partnership that capitalizes on the strengths of both organizations,” says Christian Schäfers, regional manager of Public Safety & Forensics at FARO. “FARO's high-speed leading digital scanning technology, coupled with HGXR's premium XR training, takes their training and simulation solutions to the next level.”
