Worldviz, a specialist in creating diverse VR solutions for public sector and enterprise has recently announced that it is working on a new business communication platform codenamed as Scofield.

Skofield, that is in the initial developmental stage, aims at creating more novel, cost effective and immersive methods that can easily communicate several complex ideas across teams and other decision makers.

The two major elements of Scofield includes “creation” and “experience”. In the creation or the developmental phase, it makes use of the Presentation Designer software to quickly create a VR presentation, by simply dragging and dropping elements in the WYSIWYG editor. This will give users the flexibility to modify the presentation for objects having interactivity. They will also be able to insert additional data in form of fact sheets or manuals to the presentation.

We will show something if and when we get it working well, but we have to avoid showing off prototypes that are not on a clear path to being shipped at the same or higher quality level. Throwing together very expensive or impossible to manufacture prototypes for internal R&D is one thing, using them to publicly set expectations around the near future is another.
