New Media

It’s About to Get Real.

Get Fully Immersed with New Media (AR/VR/MR)

Our love of technology is evident in our use of cutting-edge media in clients’ eLearning programs. Origin has been leading the way in Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and Mixed Reality (MR) technologies – collectively referred to as XR.

Origin’s development team creates rich XR learning experiences that enable learners to interact with content in ways that drive better comprehension.

Augmented Reality (AR)

Augmented Reality (AR) superimposes interactive computer-generated objects onto real-world environments. The result is a highly interactive training environment that supports technical skills development and multi-step tasks.

Origin has a dedicated 3D team developing cutting-edge graphics and animations using industry-leading 3D and special effects tools. Our capabilities include developing Augmented Reality that integrates our 3D content with real-life objects. What was once considered a futuristic learning modality is now entirely within reach. Discover how viable and valuable AR can be in your learning toolbox.

We Provide AR Solutions with the Following Features:

Virtual Reality (VR)

Unlike Augmented Reality, where computer-generated objects are added to a user’s real-life environment, Virtual Reality completely takes over your vision, making it appear as though you’re in an entirely new environment.

Origin’s team of highly-skilled 3D technologists builds interactive reality simulations that simulate real-life products, equipment, and physical environments to create a safe, unique, and engaging learning experience.

Origin Helps Make Virtual Reality Content Attainable

Use Cases Include:

Mixed Reality (MR)

Mixed Reality combines real-world and digital elements, allowing users to simultaneously visualize and interact with physical and virtual items and environments. With several VR headsets on the market at various levels and price points, Mixed Reality is springing up in more and more applications.

Imagine the Possibilities of Mixed Reality.

Let Origin help you bring Mixed Reality content to life! Adding Origin’s Mixed Reality to your learning programs allows for realistic simulations that let users test various scenarios without ever compromising safety or damaging live programs or technologies. With so many uses for MR, you owe it to yourself to learn more.
