November 24, 2021 – DPVR, a Shanghai-based company specializing in virtual reality (VR) device design and manufacturing, has recently announced a strategic partnership with XRGlobal, a South Africa-based educational software provider. As part of the agreement, DPVR will serve as XRGlobal’s supplier to provide it with customized VR software and hardware, and offer after-sales service for its hardware.
DPVR focuses on the application of VR technology for businesses, and provides for the entire product development and manufacturing process. According to the company, so far it has established its distribution channels in the United States, Japan, South Korea, the Netherlands, Russia, Brazil, and 20+ other countries to offer its solutions to companies.
XRGlobal offers training solutions through its immersive VR, augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) learning and development platform. The company noted that the use of VR and AR in training helps to boost engagement and knowledge retention and enables organisations to enforce consistent, measurable standards at scale. The use of VR technology also provides a way to train employees where it is not always practical or safe to do so in the real world, and can be a much more cost effective solution than traditional classroom training.
DPVR will provide XRGlobal with its two most competitive VR headsets, the P1 Pro and P1 Ultra 4K devices. The P1 Ultra 4K, which is equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset, is the company’s latest VR headset and was released earlier this year.
Natalie Miller, co-founder of XRGlobal said: “Our partnership with DPVR enables us at XRGlobal to focus on the educational content while being confident of the hardware that will allow our customers to take full advantage of all that VR brings to the training space. We are thrilled to kick off and grow our engagement with DPVR.”
Derek Liu, VP at DPVR, commented: “Our products have been widely used around the world by leading brands in many different industry sectors to provide a range of solutions in K12 & STEM education, enterprise training, simulations and medical scenarios. We are extremely proud to build a strategic partnership with the XRGlobal team in South Africa to distribute VR solutions and bring more education and training possibilities to customers in 2022”.
