August 15, 2022 – Taqtile, a provider of augmented reality (AR)-based work instruction solutions for deskless employees, has recently announced that its Manifest platform now has support for Microsoft Azure Remote Rendering.
According to Taqtile, this enhanced functionality will enable companies to leverage the power of hyper-realistic 3D content for their frontline workers using Microsoft’s HoloLens 2 mixed reality (MR) headset. Through built-in support of Microsoft Azure Remote Rendering, digital twins and powerful 3D content once only available to CAD engineers will now be accessible through Manifest, empowering organizations to complete onboarding, training, and operational tasks more thoroughly, in the immersive Manifest AR-enabled environment.
The benefits of built-in Microsoft Azure Remote Rendering include:
- More Detail – Eliminates limitations on the size of 3D models, removing barriers to delivery of more complex images and unlocking new possibilities for the utility of these models for remote guidance, training, and operational support.
- Hosting Control – Allows companies to host and render models in their own Azure accounts and, where supported, in their own geographic regions, delivering added security.
- Time-to-Utility and Reduced Costs – Decreases in the time it takes to deploy complex 3D images and digital twins on Manifest by reducing and/or eliminating the need for – and cost of – 3D design experts to manipulate models for file-size, texture map quantity, decimation, and optimization.
With access to 3D content, the Manifest platform maximizes its AR capabilities, providing added image detail and realism to frontline personnel, according to Taqtile. Making high-quality 3D images available in the Manifest AR environment is an invaluable component of AR-enabled training, completion of operational tasks, and collaborative communication between frontline staff and remote experts.
“Secure, ultra-efficient availability of CAD-level, highly detailed, 3D content is becoming more and more important to customers across industries,” said John Tomizuka, CTO at Taqtile. “Building support for Microsoft Azure Remote Rendering directly into Manifest will make frontline personnel more efficient and more effective, while reducing the cost of optimizing and creating original 3D content.”
