Unlocking the power of user generated content is a cornerstone of the EON Software Platform in 2015
IRVINE, CA, June 15, 2015 – EON Reality Inc., the world leader in Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer for industry, education, and edutainment, announces new features that further democratize the creation and sharing of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality which are being added to the EON Software Platform, the world’s leading AR and VR knowledge transfer platform, in 2015. Key among these are bringing user generated content to mobile devices and headsets, assessment, multi user capability and mixed media features, such as Interactive 3D combined with Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and 360° videos.

|Experience and learn to create content in minutes.
Technical developments in the EON Software Platform have always focused on extending the reach of content creation to the average user, not just the programmers or coding experts. During 2015, EON Reality will roll out features that further empower user created content.
EON Creator, a do-it-yourself Augmented and Virtual Reality creation tool, will now publish its simulations to mobile devices and EON EON-XR, a tool that will enable AR and VR content creation using mobile phones and headsets, will be released in Q4 of 2015. EON EON-XR is addressing both the challenge with VR that insulates users from the real world as well as the challenge with AR does not provide a large degree of immersion. EON’s EON-XR new patent pending innovation solves these challenges by combining AR and VR simultaneously in one scene (AR + VR = EON-XR) triggered by proximity levels. For example a user can experience Augmented Reality within desktop distance and at the same time Virtual Reality immersive experience within the room distance.
These tools also will provide built in assessment capabilities that turn user created content into learning modules with an experiential learning mode and a challenge test mode.
“We want to empower teachers, students, and knowledge workers to experience as well as create Augmented and Virtual Reality content for education, industry, and edutainment,” said Dan Lejerskar, Chairman of EON Reality. “Our new EON Platform provides an easy way for non-technical users to experience, create and share their own AR and VR content.”

|Integration with web, PowerPoint, video, sound, SCORM, and animations.
EON Reality is adding a host of upgraded features that makes creating and experiencing Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality that much easier. Support is being added for mixed media, which brings 360° images and 360° videos (both live and pre-recorded) along into VR simulations.
Also being added to the EON Software Platform, is improved Augmented Reality tools that add object tracking and support for multiple marker tracking. EON Coliseum is being rebuilt to provide multi-user collaboration across mobile devices

|Creators can build in Augmented Reality and then dive in Virtual Reality to experience their creation.
|End-users learn in Experience Mode and then use Challenge Mode to assess their knowledge level.
“With millions of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality capable mobile devices currently in users’ hands, EON Reality’s new mobile EON Experience VR platform makes AR and VR learning available, accessible, and affordable to everyday users,” said Mats W. Johansson, CEO and President of EON Reality.
|Voice command, gaze, or hand movement can trigger 360° video or 3D object interaction.
|Real objects and up to 1000 Augmented Reality markers can trigger different AR apps.
Quality of life features like the automatic optimization of Virtual Reality stereo, faster AR and VR content downloading, and enhanced social media support, will empower millions of Augmented and Virtual Reality enthusiasts to share their ideas and experiences with the world.
|Virtual Reality stereo optimized for various phone sizes, camera field of view, and differences in phones used.
|Facebook sharing capabilities, recording, and saving of mobile screens.
Together with EON Experience and EON Experience VR, these tools and features will continue to expand the world’s largest Augmented and Virtual Reality knowledge transfer platform for users around the world. The EON Experience Player adds cross platform Virtual Reality distribution capabilities as well.
|Users can collaborate and share interactive 3D Augmented and Virtual Reality environments.
|Cross platform player supports 30+ formats including mobile, PCs, and a multitude of immersive displays.
For the advanced user and more robust simulations, EON Reality offers a full suite of development tools such as EON Studio, EON Professional, and the EON SDK. These tools empower developers to create advanced Augmented and Virtual Reality knowledge transfer applications with extended Import 3D and CAD data, advanced Scene Graph Editor, Animation creation, Visual Effects, Physics, and Data Optimization.
