HP Debuts Virtual Reality Solutions and Services for Businesses
HP has announced a unified approach and commercial solutions for virtual reality (VR), positioning itself as a partner of choice for businesses looking to reduce concept to production cycle times, improve training procedures and deliver immersive customer experiences. As part of this strategy, the company is unveiling the world’s first professional wearable VR PC1 – the HP Z VR Backpack. It is the world’s most secure and manageable wearable VR PC2.
“Virtual reality is changing the way people learn, communicate and create,” said Xavier Garcia, Vice President and General Manager, Z Workstations, HP Inc. “Making the most of this technology requires a collaborative relationship between customers and partners. As a leader in technology, HP is uniting powerful commercial VR solutions, including new products like the HP Z VR Backpack, with customer needs to empower VR experiences our customers can use today to reinvent the future.”
The opportunities for commercial VR are limitless for businesses in product design, architecture, healthcare, first responder training, automotive and entertainment. Emerging technologies like VR create breakthrough experiences for customers – from reinventing the buying experience in automotive showrooms to changing the way hospitals train their staff.
HP’s Approach to VR
HP’s approach to virtual reality is founded upon its history of product innovation and customer relationships. HP works as an extension of its customers’ businesses, which enables it to deliver immersive technologies that help businesses lead their industries. HP technology not only provides commercial-grade reliability, but also established partnerships that bring together the complete VR ecosystem with Intel, NVIDIA, Technicolor, HTC Vive and others.
The company is investing in immersive virtual and augmented reality technologies to give customers and partners tools for commercial VR use cases. This effort solidifies HP’s long-term commitment to VR and helping customers use VR to reinvigorate their businesses. Thirteen immersion centres will open later this year in Sydney, Palo Alto, Houston, Boise, Fort Collins, Stockholm, London, Paris, Barcelona, Boeblingen, Beijing, Tokyo and Singapore, and have been designed so customers can have an immersive experience using HP VR technology and receive consulting and learn how to best deploy VR devices within their business to streamline workflows.
The Mobility to Transform – HP Z VR Backpack
The HP Z VR Backpack solution provides the freedom to move and maintain total immersion with high-octane visual performance and docking capabilities that transform it into a manageable, powerful desktop PC experience. The HP Z VR Backpack is a catalyst for more powerful VR experiences across many enterprises and businesses including the following use case examples:
- Businesses can use VR to deliver safe and effective simulated training in dangerous environments, in medical training or for heavy/large equipment operations. In all these environments costly mistakes can be avoided with effective VR training solutions using the HP Z VR Backpack.
- In architectural building development, virtual walkthroughs at scale for client reviews can help quickly close the deal.
- In product development where product concepts are reviewed, executive agreement and sign off for new product styling can be done in virtual product showrooms.
- In commercial entertainment, new location-based entertainment centres featuring exhilarating virtual reality experiences can now be realised with the HP Z VR Backpack.
With the workstation-class HP Z VR Backpack, the full potential of VR is brought to-life. HP’s immersive and untethered VR Backpack is light with an ergonomic backpack design and hot swappable batteries to provide freedom within an immersive experience. It has high-end processing power and the latest high-fidelity graphic solution to help prevent disruptive dropped frames so users can work in VR for as long as needed. The Intel Core i7 vPro processor provides the power to process applications quickly and includes the vPro chipset. The HP Z VR Backpack is the first wearable VR PC in the market with the NVIDIA Quadro P5200 with 16GB video memory.
Finally, its docking solution lets digital creators quickly transition back and forth between high powered desktop for content design and wearable VR PC to validate creations. The HTC Vive Business Edition HMD (sold separately) is part of the HP VR portfolio. HP Z VR Backpack is scheduled to be available in September.
