The VR Bridge for your software

Virtual Reality - quick, easy & reliable

moreViz provides the easiest way to enable your software with VR functions. With the new more3D software moreViz you will experience how simple the actual process and how beneficial the acutal use of VR is. Virtual products, models and environments are perceived so realistically that they seemingly become tangible to the user. With perspectively correct 3D scenes based on the user's position, the imitation of reality is almost indistinguishable from itself.

Direct bridge - no detours

Realistical presentations are essential advantages in design reviews as well as in convincing customer presentations. The moreViz software works like a plugin, it extracts the graphic data directly from your running application and sends them into the VR environment. The immediate presentation in realtime VR saves time and reduces costs -  import/export and conversion struggles are a thing of the past.

Highlights

  • Realtime conversion in Virtual Reality
  • 3D Stereo presentation on the fly
  • Full trackingsupport and integration
  • Supports 3D Monitors, HMDs and Projectors
  • Cluster and Standalone operation
  • Modular design
  • Plattform: Windows 7 32/64-bit, Windows 8 32/64-bit

Complete Connectivity

The moreViz software enables to view your data with the complete VR function set, including the utilization of the most modern trackingdevices. Even combinations of systems are possible as the software is designed modular. You need precise optical tracking with the intuitiveness of a gamepad input device? No problem. Your solution requires inertial sensor based tracking? We got it. Systems based on ultrasound? Fully functional. Even for very special requirements we can quickly create solutions, as our team of experts created the software to be expanded.

Sustainable Investment

more3D was founded in 2001: We research and develop stereo 3D and VR solutions ever since. The founders are active even longer, with the ELSA AG the first consumer shutter glasses and 3D gaming drivers were released in the 90ies. The development of the new moreViz software is sustainable and future-proof planned. This allows us to integrate new innovations quickly from the fast-moving 3D hardware market. A very good example is the development of the moreStereo3D software. It was launched on Windows98 - today it supports Windows 7 and Windows 8 and soon it will be certified for Windows 10.

 

Supports 3D Monitors, HMDs and 3D Projectors

The new VR software works with many different output devices to support nearly every VR environment and budget. Starting with VR on a laptop with a head mounted device, over 3D monitors and TVs up to activate and passive 3D projection, everything is possible. more3D has strong partners in the field of 3D hardware and will find the best solution for your requirement and budget. There is no software available as flexible and versatile as the new moreViz VR software. Following the VR head mounted display trend we integrated support for the Oculus Rift, other devices will follow up soon. It is our goal to provide actual solutions for the new and exciting visualization devices on the market, so we are always happy to hear your feedback and suggestions for new output devices. Simply get in touch with us.

Maximum computing power

moreViz recognizes the graphic data of your application. This Data is then captured, packed and encrypted by our fast moreViz grabbing engine. The data packets are then sent over network to an unlimited amount of clients for rending. With this architecture many use scenarios are thinkable. E.g. clustering for faster visualisation in a high-end multi-side cave is possible, as well as additional remote clients can receive the data. This way the VR experience can be shared across networks, even across the internet (while bandwith and latency restrictions apply).

Free choice of trackingsytems

By integrating the open VRPN interace moreviz offers great compability to many tracking systems. Nearly every major tracking systems manufacturer provides a VRPN trackingserver software for their hardware devices. And VRPN trackingserver are compatible to moreViz.

amongst others, here are some supported trackers:

  • ART
  • Ascension
  • Immersion
  • Intersense
  • Microsoft Kinect
  • Novint
  • Optitrack
  • Razer Hydra
  • Vicon
  • WorldWiz
  • zSpace

Easy Setup of your environment

Most VR software require lengthy calibrations and setups by service personell. Users of moreViz confirm: the eight-page Readme file enables everybody to gain complete understanding and control over the software and environment. The moreViz Server Control application provides full control over the server, the graphic data capture and comfort features. The VRPN Translator integrates input devices and tracking systems as well as it is used for the one-time cave calibration (which is an automatic process). The moreViz clients can be freely copied to every computer, all they need to know is their wall rotation and position.

Flexible Licensing

The principle of the moreViz licensing is pretty quickly explained. Once you buy a license, all functions, features and capabilities of the software are licensed and ready for use. No hidden costs for additional walls or limitiation of application support. You are enabled to run and connect as many clients as you desire. Additionally we are deliving an activation tool with the moreViz installation which enables for quick and easy server license transfer. Simply connect to the more3D license server and start the manual portation of your moreViz server license. With this mechanism your flexible control over your licenses is always guaranteed.

Realtime Datalink

The datalink between your software, e.g. JT2Go, Sketchup or Catia, works in realtime. moreViz copies all graphic data and sends it encrypted over the local network to the moreViz visualization clients. The clients mirror each change in the actual application in realtime. This way animations and steps can be played in the immersive enivronment - with the advantages of tracking and life-like stereo visualization.

Windows7 and Windows8

Most professional applications run on Windows7 and Windows8. We support both operating systems completely, even in their 32-Bit and 64-Versions. We surely recommend using 64-Bit versions as CAD applications have a tendency to require lots of RAM. As soon as Windows10 is being released we will certify moreViz for the new Microsoft product too. In the current development status of the new operating systems changes will be too deep to start our development yet. Until then we prefer to use our resources to deliver you new and exciting features for moreViz.

more Compability

Targeting professional users we have integrated a lot of comfort functions into moreViz. For instance we provide an option which disables all 2D elements in the moreViz render pipeline. This feature allows to remove e.g. scene trees from inside the visualisation allowing for the full rich VR experience without distracting elements. Further we are currently developing shader support for moreViz which will very soon be released to the publich allowing even more realistic visualization.

more Independence

Systemintegrators will surely appreciate moreViz'es independence in terms of graphics boards. moreViz offers the choice of using consumer hardware and also does not need any special drivers or manufacturers. With our new software you can choose from whatever graphics board your application benefits best. Using two clients on a single computer hardware you can power any dual head projection or displaying device. Using up to four clients you can easily drive the 84'' quad-input Planar display. moreViz provides fast, realiable and flexible VR presentation of your software based on your current environment.

moreViz Demo Video

The following video shows moreViz in combination with Tecnomatix Plant Simulation. We are running three moreViz Clients. The right moreViz window represents a 90° angled right projection wall, the centered moreViz client represents a front projection wall and the left window is a 270° angled left wall. We are using a Microsoft Gamepad as input device, whilst a Kinect for Tracking would be possible as well. Even professional tracking devices, like ART Tracking devices are enabled.
