PRISM is an integrated hardware and software product that combines high-resolution surround projection with directional sound and touch interactivity to add lifelike contextual stimuli to learning environments. The immersive virtual simulation room provides realistic and scalable training environments to healthcare professionals, improving learning retention and real-world performance.

Peter Schlueer, President at WorldViz, comments: “We understand from our partnership with the Ventura College’s Paramedic Program leadership that elevating stress during training improves learning outcomes and paramedic preparedness. Ventura College uses PRISM to create hazardous or otherwise difficult to recreate scenarios that evoke a sense of presence in scenario training and improve learner engagement.”
