ActiveDesk Overview

image005ACTIVEDESK provides a wholly immersive and interactive virtual environment in which to better explore and understand information and data. Immersive environments stimulate intra and inter-disciplinary communications, facilitating a level of understanding often unattainable using conventional methods. Our clients repeatedly tell us that the improved understanding our systems bring is truly transformational to their design reviews, manufacturing processes, teaching sessions and marketing efforts.

Consumer HMDs

You can simply add an Oculus Rift or an HTC Vive and you bring many of the advantages of ActiveSpace to your desk.


We have developed drivers that bring Visionary Render models onto the brilliant zSpace.

Visionary Render

Virtalis Visionary Render software allows users to access and experience a real-time, interactive and immersive Virtual Reality (VR) environment created from huge 3D datasets. The next version of Visionary Render, Version 1.3, is mainly focused on providing a plug and play HMD interface for the new generation of consumer HMDs.

ActiveDesk is a combination of VR enabling devices for desk-based working, as it brings many of the 3D advantages of ActiveWall and ActiveMove, though without the 1:1 scale, obviously!





ActiveDesk can be run off a high end laptop and can even be tracked.

ActiveDesk Enables:

– Improved design methodology

– Validation of maintenance procedures

– Verification of assembly and manufacturing processes

– The handling and management of complex CAD data sources seamlessly

– Collision detection for the entire model



“Our students now have the luxury of exploration and repetition until they are feeling confident about a topic. zSpaces are most definitely a step up from simulated 3D engineering animations on a screen.”

Prof James Wolffsohn, deputy dean of the School of Life & Health Sciences at Aston University
