Virtalis Industry Meetups

The industry focused meetups are about knowledge sharing & learning between Virtalis customers and the wider industry. Practitioners are invited to discuss trends and updates.

The shipbuilding industry designs and constructs ocean-going vessels. These can be ships, ferries, submarines, and offshore platforms. Producers of these complex vessels have one thing in common; competition is pushing them to become faster, better, and more affordable. This never-ending battle is triggering digital transformations that impact the supply chain as a whole.

Industrial Enterprises require visualisation tools that support every aspect of the design and production process where data and models are carried forward in the product life-cycle.

Extended reality, or XR, is an umbrella term for VR (virtual reality), AR ( augmented reality), and MR (mixed reality). XR technology is transforming and accelerating the Industrial.

Enterprise in many ways.
Join us and understand how your enterprise can maximise the value of XR.
