The story of XR Studio
XR Studio is a business unit of Softability. XR Studio´s solutions support customers’ business with new technologies such as Augmented Reality AR, Virtual Reality VR and Mixed Reality MR. Read how XR Studio was born!
It was early spring in 2016 when Softability’s Sales Manager Mikko Luukkonen successfully introduced Microsoft’s Mixed Reality concept to Softability and customers with a vision to empower customers’ businesses with new technologies that expand the physical world by adding layers of useful and immersive digital information onto it.
As a result, Softability invested in Mixed Reality (MR) development and launched the first Microsoft HoloLens application in Finland.
Since then, Softability has grown into one of the most respected X-Reality providers in Finland, offering customized Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality and Virtual Reality applications to a wide and ever-growing range of industrial, medical and commercial clients.
XR Studio team develops XR solutions that can be combined with cloud services and machine learning. XR Studio’s capabilities include several AR / MR / VR platforms as well as 3D UI/UX design. Studio provides applications for mobile devices (iOS, Android, Windows), smart glasses, VR headsets or other eyewear.
In 2017, XR Studio launched XReach Remote Support Solution, that connects remote workers and experts with video and audio anywhere in real-time. XReach enables companies to provide their technicians and experts with a live-video remote support and smart request handling to ease the work on various locations.
