FAQ

1) Is using virtual reality conferencing safe during the Coronavirus epidemic?

As long as you use your own personal VR headset and don’t share it with others, VR conferencing with Vizible gives you a unique opportunity to safely connect with clients and colleagues and get important business done from home, without risking Coronavirus exposure. If you or your clients and colleagues don’t have a VR headset handy, you can also connect to a Vizible meeting using your desktop PC.


2) What are successful use cases for remote VR collaboration?

Here are a number of use cases we’ve seen our clients have exceptional success with:


Selling and Presenting Complex Products

Instead of shipping or hauling demo equipment, you can convey to your prospects an incredible sense of products, capabilities and layouts in VR. See our case study on Steris Corporation, a market leader for infection protection and contamination control products to learn how they use VR to present products to prospective clients. 


Envisioning Room Layouts

Immerse your prospect in layout options of their office space/facilities so they can envision how it will look and feel once your product is installed. Obtain stakeholder sign-off early and avoid costly change orders.


Visualizing Project Processes

For example demonstrating to your client how a submarine pipeline will be laid on the seabed, including all equipment involved.


Conceptualizing Spatial Designs

Multiple people at different locations meeting in a virtual space to collaborate on designing the spatial layout of a trade show booth or evaluating the design of a shoe model. See our case study with footwear brand Deckers.
