Introducing VizBox: A Portable VR System for Professionals

December 19, 2017

Gabe Baker

We’ve been hearing from our customers for a while about the difficulties that come with setting up and transporting VR workstations.

We also had a problem ourselves – we have anawesome new virtual reality meeting and collaboration platform called Vizible, but not everyone we want to meet in VR has a system that we think does justice to the experience. We needed a system that was strong enough to ship to our clients and provided top-of-the line immersion, but was easy enough to use that a person new to VR could set it up easily.

At WorldViz, we have more than 15 years of experience designing VR hardware and software solutions, and a few months ago we put our heads together to see how we could address this problem.We came up with the WorldViz VizBox, a first-of-its-kind, patented, portable VR system for professionals. The VizBox delivers fully immersive 6DOF virtual reality content and is designed to be self-contained with minimal set-up. Housed completely inside a sturdy Pelican case, it’s robust enough for safe shipping and travel.

We’ve been putting VizBoxes to the test ourselves by shipping them to customers and taking them to trade shows around the country, and they’ve proven to be resilient and powerful. People that stopped by our booth were surprised by the elegance and simplicity of the solution – they wanted one! This further motivated us to refine the product and bring it to market. We’re incredibly proud of the finished VizBox product.
