Grid Raster Inc. now supports Microsoft Hololens 2 on its mixed reality (XR) cloud platform, allowing enterprise customers the ability to leverage the headset for a virtual experience in training, design, production and customer service applications.

Powered by cloud technology, Microsoft’s Hololens 2 is a tool for business applications that can be utilized during the COVID-19 pandemic, where it is even more important for organizations to practice human social distancing while maintaining design and production cycles. Mixed-reality devices display 3D imagery over what a person typically visualizes in their surroundings. The Hololens 2 offers technology that allows the user to remain fully engaged with their surroundings.

The use case opportunities for enterprises are endless in many industries, such as engineers using the HoloLens 2 to overlay blueprints over aerospace designs, surgeons consulting a patient's medical records in real time, and automotive employees working on different continents can collaborate to build cars while remaining socially distant without sacrificing productivity.

“Even in a pandemic-free commercial world, enterprises are now moving toward an environment where they leverage 3D technology in order to create and execute more precise designs and on the manufacturing floor,” said Rishi Ranjan, CEO of Grid Raster. “The key to powering technology like the Hololens 2 is the cloud, where enterprises can truly leverage this technology and appropriately scale projects while maintaining project efficiencies and across many different devices.”
