HTC VIVE AND VIVEPORT TO BE USED BY DESIGNERS TO SIMPLIFY WORKFLOWS AND ENABLE BETTER CREATION AND COLLABORATION THROUGH VIRTUAL REALITY
HTC Corporation (“HTC”), a pioneer in innovative, smart mobile and virtual reality (VR) technologies, and Autodesk are working together to revolutionize the way designers create, model and collaborate. HTC Vive™, a first-of-its-kind virtual reality product and ecosystem that offers full room-scale VR for the deepest and most precise content creation experience, will help Autodesk’s customers simplify their workflow experience. Through Autodesk’s cloud-based design engine, Forge, and HTC’s Viveport platform, customers will soon be empowered to conceive, design and collaborate on compelling immersive experiences using virtual reality.
No longer are designers limited to manipulating a two-dimensional computer screen to create their products. By creating in virtual reality with Vive, anyone from engineers and architects to manufacturers and entertainers can quickly step into a virtual world, and easily create, edit and share their designs.
“With Vive, we’re changing the way the world interfaces with interactive experiences,” said Rikard Steiber, president, Viveport. “Working with Autodesk will harness the power and unlimited opportunity of Vive and Viveport, and introduce immersive, room-scale virtual reality to more designers.”
“We’ve been at the forefront of the design world for more than 30 years, and by working with Vive, we are simplifying the workflow for designers, and aligning with how our customers will work in the future,” said Brian Pene, director of emerging technology at Autodesk. “We are focused on visualization and empowering our customers with cutting-edge technology with the goal of making it easier for them to imagine and manipulate their designs and creations.
HTC and Autodesk are committed to building on their collaboration, and to make immersive environments a reality for designers and engineers.About VIVE
