S31873: Global-Scale Cloud-Streaming Visualization in AR

Featuring Sebastien Loze, Industry Manager, Training & Simulation

While deployment and XR have been important drivers of innovation for simulation applications for some time, they have become crucial in the last year. Stakeholders from all across the planet across several application domains have seen the pandemic fundamentally change the way we analyze, learn, and train for our global world and our virtual environments.

One year after the beginning of this global pivoting movement, thought leaders are sharing their thoughts and experiences: in this session, you will hear from Epic Games’ partners Cesium, Microsoft, and NVIDIA about the off-the-shelf technologies used to rapidly build and deploy a streaming interactive simulation application using the Cesium for Unreal plugin, OGC 3D Tiles, Unreal Engine, and Holographic Remoting from Azure to the Microsoft HoloLens 2 device.

Join us for this demonstration and explanation of the tools you can use today to build and deploy streaming simulation and training applications.

Watch the event on April 13 at 12 PM PDT | 3 PM EDT | 8 PM BST.
