Modus VR introduces new Presenter Mode for improved project design

Modus VR has released a new Presenter Mode for its VR software, which merges the power of Modus VR with the convenience of a video call, providing a seamless way to share a room technology design over any meeting of unified communications platform.

The new feature is also optimised for designing and presenting in Modus VR on external displays in front of groups in both the residential and enterprise spaces.

Alongside the new mode announcement, the company has also added new products from seven manufacturers to the ever-expanding software and Modus Match Partner Programme.

Presenter Mode allows for easy and seamless sharing of Modus VR content, allowing end clients and partners on a project to join a design session from anywhere without needing to wear a headset. The integrator can review the space proposal over any meeting software and make changes on the fly, dramatically reducing meeting time and increasing client confidence. All clients can then fully experience the Modus VR immersive room and technology design from the comfort of their own office, home, or wherever they are in the world.

Using the new Presenter Mode on an external display is now easier than ever. By leveraging easy to learn in-VR controls, such as user-defined presets, a presenter can quickly and confidently share a space and the technology design with the single click of a button in Modus VR.

Taking this one step further, an external user can also control the Presenter View using a games controller, creating unique and immersive experiences for audiences and expanding how manufacturers engage with customers for training and education.

“Presenter Mode marks another major evolution of our software, as it’s even easier to design and present a room to people wherever they are located,” said Ken Brueck, co-founder of Modus VR. “This is the direct result of integrators using our products in today’s hybrid settings, and providing inputs to our development process. Integrators can now present and work on designs without a showroom or going to the client in person.

“Presenter Mode is a purpose-built solution to allow use of Modus VR to support organisations and people all over the world. Our goal is to help dealers speed up the design process and create more business opportunities with Modus VR.”

“Modus VR’s Presenter Mode is an absolute game changer for sharing meeting room designs with our clients,” said Nick Showler, principal consultant for Rapid Circle Australia. “Being able to share a virtual tour of their environment over a MS Teams call has been a huge help in presenting concepts and decision making. The camera view of the room, achieved by flying a virtual drone, is incredibly realistic and immersive. It’s also a lot of fun to fly using VR or game controllers. The ability to show room layouts, equipment placement, lighting and furniture in such detail has really helped showcase the value of VR design.”

Integrators can use Presenter Mode themselves or leverage the recently announced Modus-as-a-Service (MaaS), where the Modus VR team guides the entire project for the integrator and their clients.

Alongside the new mode announcement, the company has also added several new brands, products and services to the ever-expanding software and Modus Match Partner Programme. They include Biamp’s Parlé Conferencing Bars and Microphones, and Vidi Cameras; D-Tools’ Design and Estimating Software (Modus VR within D-Tools); Jabra’s PanaCast, PanaCast 20, PanaCast 50 Plug and Play Video System; Middle Atlantic’s Forum Collaboration Suite; Q-SYS’ NM Series tabletop network microphone, Axon C1 wall controller, and more; Winsted’s Vue Workstation Consoles; Vaddio’s IntelliSHOT Auto-Tracking Conference Camera; and Yamaha’s ADECIA Solution.

Modus VR Presenter Mode and all new Partner Products are now available for both residential and enterprise customers. With the new feature set, Modus VR is offering expanded license options to accommodate customers small to large.
