Extended Reality (XR) for Enterprise is the new standard in collaborative tools for modern, distributed teams. XR unlocks immersive training, design, collaboration, and visualization capabilities never experienced before, now at a fraction of the cost it used to. However, larger teams looking for access to this cutting-edge technology still need to maintain security and control across multiple devices and users.
When it comes to considering an Enterprise-grade virtual reality (VR) headset for your design, architecture, or innovation team, there are a few emerging solutions that allow for the flexibility and privacy needed, while still providing access to the latest features and updates that consumer devices are receiving.
Released in late 2021, the Pico Neo 3 Pro is a fantastic All-in-One (AIO) VR solution for Enterprise that combines best-in-class design, affordability, and security. This sharp standalone headset does away the need for PCs, phones, or wires - giving your distributed team global access to shared immersive experiences.
According to Pico Interactive, the Pico Neo 3 Pro headset offers improved accuracy and latency experience, and introduces two new 6DoF controllers that use 32 optical tracking sensors for complex environment positioning. Also included are four wide-angle cameras that bring true millimeter-level positioning and tracking to the headset.
For Enterprise teams looking to collaborate, present, and review building projects together in Virtual Reality, The Wild is the best collaborative AEC tool that provides official support for the Pico Neo 3 Pro. With native integrations like Revit, SketchUp, and BIM360, and powerful VR tools for prototyping, design reviews, and BIM coordination, it’s the perfect workspace to reduce design flaws and mitigate costly clashes directly with the Pico Neo 3 Pro.
Scaling software like The Wild onto the Pico Neo 3 Pro is a breeze with its standard Mobile Device Manager (MDM) support. This allows you to streamline VR device set-up and grouping, quickly deploy VR applications, manage headset software updates, toggle Kiosk Mode, and more. For enhanced security, Enterprise teams can also deploy an optional Private Cloud solution with The Wild to adhere with your IT protocol. To find the right solution for your cutting edge team’s unique needs, set up time to chat with one of our immersive technology consultants.
There are many consumer VR headsets available on the market today; not all are supported by The Wild. Check out our guide to getting started with VR to learn more about the differences listed here. Also, you can view a recording of our webinar, "Choosing the Right VR Headset for your AEC Team," here.
Enterprise VR headsets specifically provide security and control to deploy software at scale for large teams. The affordability of the Pico Neo 3 Pro, in balance with its technical specifications listed above, make it an amazing value for Enterprise teams looking to provide a standard VR device for employees.
It’s worth noting that standalone headsets are relatively new to the XR industry, as popularly pioneered by the Oculus Quest in 2019. Tethered headsets required a connection to advanced computers to render 3D experiences. The Pico Neo 3 Pro and Meta Quest 2 are the only two standalone devices supported in The Wild that can be purchased today that allow teams to collaborate at scale from anywhere in the world. However, both devices have the ability to optionally be tethered - physically with a USB cable, or wirelessly through fast wifi - to stream higher fidelity VR experiences. Many teams prefer the versatility of this hybrid approach.
Most teams in 2022 will be comparing the Pico Neo 3 Pro with the Meta Quest 2. While slightly more affordable, Meta currently requires a Facebook account to be linked to each Quest headset, which is understandably a concern for some Enterprise teams. Pico, which is owned by TikTok holding company Bytedance, has established a more rigid reputation for Enterprise security and data privacy.
