Not all business-enhanced reality tools require an advanced headset and heavy computing power. Sometimes a smartphone can also do the job. At the same time, the software manufacturer Atheer now takes its AR platform to iPhones and iPads via a built-in app.
The company's new Augmented Reality Management Platform (ARMP) app, which enables business companies to deliver work instructions and conduct remote video calling, is compatible with iPhone 6 and later and second generation iPads and iPad Minis running at least iOS 12.0.
Aters mobile app allows users to comment on live video with conserved elements such as arrows, text and objects, as well as with free-form drawings, and quickly undo or redo actions. The app also provides features like low-bandwidth video transmission, zooming in and out of a live video and group video calling.
However, not only interested parties can search the App Store and find the app. Instead, Atheer requires customers to contact customer support for a copy.
"Shipping Atheer as native Apple IOS app for iPhone and iPad is an important advance in delivering on our agnostic vision for ARMP, says Atheer CEO Sanjog Gad in a blog post. "We believe that companies should be able to start using AR with the units that best suit their needs and their budget. Providing Atheer as a built-in iOS app allows customers to do just that. "
In March, the company expanded part of its AR platform, Atheer AiR, for iPads by optimizing the app to the Safari browser, and Atheer AiR is compatible with Android-based smartphones, tablets and smartglasses along with Windows 10 devices and adds Microsoft HoloLens to the mix in February.
Platform is among a crowded field in a relatively mature company that expands the real estate market, heads head to head with companies like Scope AR, Re & # 39; Spot, Ubimax and Upskill. Also, companies that are more famous for making AR hardware, such as Microsoft and Daqri, have started sending their own AR apps.
By ensuring that its software can work on embedded apps for the most popular mobile operating system, At Mr. Now differs from the package by appealing to a wider range of customers, such as those not yet sold on investing in smartglasses or AR headsets.
