Global tech giant Cisco has introduced a new hybrid work collaboration product called ‘Webex Hologram,’ designed as a real-time meeting solution accessible using AR headsets. The platform, unveiled at the company’s WebexOne virtual event, amalgamates Webex meeting functionality with immersive 3D holograms.
The company intends to enable workers to interact more actively, like working offline, using Webex Hologram’s holographic capabilities.
“Our mission at Cisco is to empower the 3 billion digital workers on the planet to participate equally from anywhere in the world,” said Jeetu Patel, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Cisco Security, and Collaboration. “Webex Hologram represents a large step toward our mission of delivering a work experience so seamless that there is no gap between virtual and in-person collaboration.”
The pandemic has been a massive catalyst towards the idea of remote and flexible working arrangements. As a result, several enterprises have been looking to onboard better solutions to enhance their remote working capabilities.
“Webex Hologram is a powerful tool for our design engineers, drivers, and crews as we continue to reimagine hybrid sports and support our team on tracks around the world,” said Zak Brown, CEO of McLaren Racing.
“Rather than flying a technician to the racing team or explaining procedures through flat images, with the Hologram technology, we can immediately show an engine component from every angle, convey sizing, and instruct on assembly and usage as if they were in person – all while saving countless hours in travel time,” he added.
