With remote work and collaboration now the new norm, there is little doubt about the usefulness of creating more immersive ways of connecting. Augmented reality, virtual reality, and the metaverse are starting to provide businesses with compelling use cases – bringing people together to interact in virtual spaces that was only ever possible in person. Going well beyond what’s possible with a digital white board, some virtual meeting spaces can now represent interactive 3D models with real depth, opening new possibilities for immersive training, design and engineering collaboration, and gaming in digital spaces. Despite the advances, creating high-quality representations of real objects for the metaverse remains an immense challenge. Three major alternatives have emerged for building the type of holograms or models needed to create believable virtual experiences: light fields, point clouds, and polygons. Join Cullen Jennings, CTO Security and Collaboration, Cisco, for a deep dive into these three cutting-edge technologies, their benefits and drawbacks, real-world uses, and how each one can be effectively deployed. Come away with a new understanding of how humans and objects will be represented in the metaverse, and the practical knowledge to choose the right technology to create the most authentic experiences for your unique virtual use-case.
