July 2, 2020 – EON Reality, a provider of augmented and virtual reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, has today announced the launch of a new partnership with global computer technology company Dell. The two companies will be working together to promote AR and VR solutions for academic and industrial facilities around the world, particularly by utilizing Dell’s reach and ability to bring EON Reality’s AVR Platform to new potential users.
Through its platform and library of AR and VR content for remote education and enterprise training, EON Reality will bring its mixed reality solutions to the partnership in order to help users learn, train, and perform better through modern immersive technology and spatial computing. EON Reality stated that the collaboration comes at a time when the need for such services is increasing, as many educators and businesses are now being faced with the reality that social distancing requirements could mean classrooms, lecture halls, offices, and training sessions will not be able to function normally again until late in 2021 or even 2022.
EON Reality’s AVR Platform allows users to partake in and distribute interactive AR and VR lessons and applications for classroom and workplace learning. With the ability to move models, assets and lessons to and from a Dell computer, ruggedized Dell tablet, mobile device, or headset, employees and students alike will be able to have full hands-on training from anywhere in the world with a stable internet connection.
After announcing several partnerships and agreements with colleges and universities around the world to create more educational and training resources in various languages on the AVR Platform, the collaboration with Dell serves as the most recent step in EON Reality’s mission to bring its flagship product to new users as the long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to unfold, according to the company.
Dan Lejerskar, EON Reality’s Founder, commented: “As a potentially massive expansion of our Global Emergency Initiative, I am very excited to see Dell’s VR and AR team is joining forces with EON Reality. Our goal has always been to provide as much access as possible to the knowledge and hands-on experience that can only be experienced through Augmented and Virtual Reality, and partnering with technology giants like Dell is the next step to bringing that to an even larger audience. I am very excited to see where this wonderful partnership could go in the future.”
As a concrete manifestation of this partnership, EON Reality and Dell are launching a series of joint events to portray the value of the AVR Platform to many of Dell’s existing customers. More information about the events as well as EON Reality’s new partnership with Dell will be available in the coming weeks. More information about the AVR Platform can be found through EON Reality’s Resource Center.
