Accessing the enterprise metaverse with ThinkReality VRX
Lenovo’s ThinkReality VRX headset is designed to be the VR solution for workers around the world. The immediacy and fidelity of new digital tools experienced through extended reality (XR) devices means workers are becoming almost unrestricted by time and space.
From improving efficiency in employee training and virtual collaboration to expanding 3D design and engineering tasks, XR technologies are more important than ever for businesses as they enable hybrid workers to do more things.
VR is delivering impressive results in training applications. Companies are experiencing up to 4x faster training in soft skills compared to classroom training and 275% more confidence in applying skills learned in VR.
In addition, VR training can reduce the risk of workplace injury by up to 43%.
As the world’s leading provider of intelligent transformation solutions for the enterprise, Lenovo has created the ThinkReality VRX to be a high-quality, versatile and secure access platform to the enterprise metaverse.
The Lenovo ThinkReality VRX works with six or three degrees of freedom content and operates as a standalone device or connected to a PC or workstation for streaming experiences.
The ThinkReality VRX is also capable of utilizing cloud-based rendering solutions such as NVIDIA CloudXR™ for graphics-intensive XR experiences that require high-end GPU-based performance.
The embedded ThinkReality software platform empowers IT and operations departments with the ability to deploy, configure and manage XR devices at scale.
Enterprise customers can support workers with upgrades and analytics to optimize performance.
Lenovo ThinkReality VRX is backed by a comprehensive set of end-to-end services, from consulting and content creation to cloud deployment and customer support, to help organizations succeed in the new realities of the enterprise environment.
The enterprise VR solution also supports enterprise-grade security practices with a secure supply chain and manufacturing process that thoroughly vets every component and service provider.
Next-level VR design features
ThinkReality VRX headsets incorporate several key design advancements to make extended VR sessions more comfortable in the office, at home or wherever the hybrid workforce is getting things done.
Innovative pancake optics and slim form factor reduce the overall profile of the helmet, while optimal battery positioning for better weight distribution and balance provides a better fit and feel. The all-in-one VR helmet also features materials that are easy to keep clean between uses.
Four front-mounted cameras offer 6DoF tracking, as well as two full-color, high-resolution pass-through cameras to give workers a better, uninterrupted user experience while performing their tasks.
The pass-through technology also offers MRI application capabilities, allowing users to overlay 3D graphics on the real world so workers can get more done with a single XR device.
The ThinkReality VRX is powered by a Snapdragon™ XR platform to enable next-level performance for immersion and interactivity in an all-in-one XR headset for workers to optimize in virtual environments.
Lenovo and the Enterprise
Lenovo is dedicated to collaborating with industry leaders to advance the growth and adoption of this emerging platform.
Enterprises can develop for the ThinkReality VRX using the Snapdragon Spaces™ XR developer platform and its OpenXR-based SDK.
“Our customers are looking for reliable, flexible and scalable gateways in the growing Enterprise Metaverse. They need enterprise-class solutions for the new realities of working in hybrid scenarios and virtual environments,” said Vishal Shah, GM of XR and Metaverse, Lenovo. “We have designed the Lenovo ThinkReality VRX to be the VR solution of choice for immersive 3D training and collaboration.”
The ThinkReality VRX is backed by its XR solutions portfolio that includes a cloud software platform to help deploy and manage enterprise applications and content on a global scale, as well as ThinkReality XR services.
XR Professional Services provides end-to-end, vendor-independent services to help customers from strategy to delivery.
The ThinkReality hardware portfolio also includes ThinkReality A3, the most versatile augmented reality (AR) smart glasses ever designed for the enterprise.
Lenovo is also collaborating with leading enterprise software vendors, including ENGAGE XR, a Metaverse communications platform for collaboration, training and education, to build and deliver a Lenovo presence in the Metaverse.
The Lenovo space within ENGAGE will be an “always-on” virtual home for Lenovo to showcase its products and solutions, as well as meet and collaborate with partners and customers.
Pricing and availability
ThinkReality VRX will be available for early access to select partners in late 2022, followed by general availability in select markets worldwide starting in early 2023.
