OVA

OVA

Crunchbase | Website | Twitter | Facebook | Linkedin

Most of the mixed reality (XR) content that exists today has been developed by teams of highly talented and technical individuals with experience using professional 3D engine or with a background in programming. The steep learning curve and difficulty of building XR has limited the amount of available content.

StellarX powered by OVA is the best sandbox available for non-programmers to develop their own XR environments, and it enables them to build through simple drag-and-drop creation. Just like Minecraft enabled 70 million people to become 3D content creators, we think that there will be hundreds of millions of computer content creators and XR makes this incredibly accessible to people.

Actually, StellarX is the path to fully accessible XR content creation for enterprise. Nowadays, the trend of more accessible tools continues, as does the amount of 3D data we are collecting.

StellarX is making it easier than ever to leverage these assets. At OVA we have built over the past four years a world-class sandbox that helps 3D content creator to build easily virtual worlds.

Further pushing this trend is the growth of mixed reality where 3D is a necessity. As we increasingly spend time in the digital world, our digital “stuff” will rival the importance of our physical “stuff”.

Amazon is the destination for physical goods, but the destination for digital goods represents a substantial opportunity. This is why we think it’s crucial to democratize the 3D content creation.

MacNeil and Sitler met through the entrepreneurship programs at Goodman Group Venture Development (formerly BioLinc), in St Catharines, ON, Canada and they credit the centre for helping them through their early-stage growth.

The two of them quickly bonded over their shared fascination with VR, related XR tech and the impact they saw it having in the near future. Over the past four years together this shared fascination has led to many ideas, from 360 video marketing to VR entertainment booths to training simulations, until finally settling on creating XR tools to help the research community.

Today XpertVR has grown to a team of 10 employees, still with the same goal of bringing XR to the masses and giving people the ability to experience data. Looking to the future in this way is what inspired the team to create the Research Access Portal.

A website where researchers can easily create virtual environments, select what data they would like to collect from interactions in the virtual world and send their study to VR headset owners around the world. Although many of these tools already exist in one form or another bringing them together and building a network of VR headset owners around them is how XpertVR is giving researchers the power to experience data.

Beyond the researcher benefits, XpertVR hopes paying VR headset owners through their portal will make it more financially viable to own VR equipment. Plus over the coming months, XpertVR is working hard to partner with XR accessory companies so that their community can get the latest and greatest equipment for a large discount if not for free..

CNN featured Futurist, Forbes Contributor, Author, 3 Time TEDx Speaker and fiilmmaker over the last 20 years Ian Khan has had the privilege to serve the needs of hundreds of organizations by fueling their growth through technology solutions. He has helped a diverse set of businesses ranging from Technology Companies, Oil Companies, Power Generation & Renewables Operators, Microsoft Ecosystem Partners, SAP Customers and Partners, Healthcare Providers, Manufacturers, Facility Operators, Startups, Educational Institutions, Nonprofits & associations and more.

Ian’s experiences with these organizations led him to a unique position of being able to identify the common challenges today’s fast paced businesses face towards growth. The bottom line as he found out, is that we all are hungry for success, want to grow, and make a difference.

Where we fall short is by failing to understand our environment and taking the right action within that environment. After 20 years serving the needs of the industry Ian’s natural pivot was to answer his calling and help organizations at a broader level understand what tomorrow brings.

His work and study of all these organizations brought forward very unique perspectives that he now share through his work. According to Ian, “Today, hands down, we live in the great time for humanity.

Technology is a great thing, but it also has its victims. Many organizations of tomorrow will fail under the pressure of a fast changing world, much of which is fueled and driven by technology”.

Ian’s mission is to help organizations avoid that pitfall, and propel themselves into success in today’s era, going from digital disruption to digital transformation in the fastest and most sustainable way. “This is the only way we can together create limitless value, create solutions that are faced by us locally as well as by others around the globe, and make the world a happier place”, says Ian.

Agility Technologies Corporation

Agility Technologies Corporation

Crunchbase | Website | Twitter | Facebook | Linkedin

Agility Technologies is a manufacturer of next generation communication technology products for technical rescue, industrial, law enforcement, and military personnel around the world. The best business advice received in the fledgling days of Agility Technologies was, “do what you know”.

After spending an accumulated 30+ years in the technical rescue and communications equipment manufacturing business, the decision to focus on developing equipment for people working in hazardous environments was a no brainer. Agility Technologies was created at the crucible of a kitchen table for the purpose of making a positive difference in the lives of the people we serve.

We want our company to break out of the slow moving corporate equipment manufacturer mold. We want to be active participants in the Rescue, Military and Industrial communities.

We will remain agile and open to the suggestions of our customers and provide exceptional customer service. Our initial job was to develop a new vision for our upstart organization.

We spent time talking to rescuers, colleagues and friends around the world about needs, wants, and technical requirements. We also took the time to do extensive technical research into the creation and application of emerging technologies.

Then we cross matched these with information gathered from potential customers and developed a strategy to design and develop the next generation visual and communications platform specifically engineered for Emergency, Military and Industry personnel working in highly-skilled hazardous work environments. This knowledge manifested itself into a visionary ecosystem of products that are supported by both hardware and software.
