Webinar: Introduction to Augmented Reality
March 21, 2014 11 AM EDT
Duration: one hour
Augmented Reality uses a variety of technologies to combine pre-defined and digitally-stored information assets with physical world objects in an end user's proximity. By detecting user context and focus of attention, Augmented Reality experiences deliver highly personalized services that inform, educate and engage the user.
Augmented Reality experiences are already used in many B2C marketing scenarios and to enrich games. As the technology matures, consumer and enterprise uses for AR are expanding rapidly.
In this presentation, we describe the AR components and how AR experiences are designed, published and delivered. You will discover how, by blending the physical and virtual worlds, AR fills special needs and offers opportunities to increase efficiency and reduce operational risk.
