We’re thrilled to announce the launch of SynergyXR 2.7, our latest version that’s set to redefine the boundaries of virtual collaboration and immersive training.

What’s new in SynergyXR 2.7?

Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)

Safety-first, also in the Corporate Metaverse. Equipping avatars with safety gear such as hard hats, safety glasses, gloves, and more is now possible. To help all users equip the relevant safety gear before embarking on a training course, the equipment can be integrated into Procedures ensuring that all participants comply with safety regulations when participating in virtual training. You can also create branded PPE equipment to match your company branding and logo.

Personalised
Avatars

The avatar configurator has undergone a complete overhaul, offering extensive customization options. Now, you can create a digital version of yourself with over 4 million unique combinations. Whether it’s your hairstyle or the safety gear you wear, your avatar can truly represent you in the virtual space.

Planned
Sessions

Planning your virtual sessions has never been easier, with our new advanced planning tools. Planned sessions allow you to organize and synchronize your virtual meetings or collaborative training sessions effortlessly. Plan sessions ahead of time, and ensure that all participants end up in the correct Space at the right time and date. Eliminate any confusion, as users are automatically guided to relevant planned Sessions in-app, so no one gets lost in the endless space of the Corporate Metaverse.

Expanded device support with PICO

Inclusivity is at the heart of what we do. That’s why SynergyXR 2.7 is now compatible with PICO stand-alone VR headsets (PICO Neo3 Pro/Pro Eye; PICO 4; and PICO 4 Enterprise), offering a consistent experience across all supported devices, and widening our support for different devices. This means more accessibility and smoother experiences for all our users. Installation is possible through the Pico Business Store, Consumer Store, ManageXR Instant App, or the SynergyXR download page.
