Virtual Reality

Pennant’s VR product combines high fidelity 3D media, the latest Head-Mounted Display (HMD) technology and motion tracking techniques provides a fully immersive training experience they would expect from the real world, but in a danger-free environment.


What is Virtual, Augmented & Mixed Reality?

Virtual Reality (VR) – VR is an artificial environment that is created with software and presented to the user in such a way that the user suspends belief and accepts it as a real environment.

Augmented Reality (AR) – AR is the integration of digital information with the user’s environment in real time. Unlike VR, which creates a totally artificial environment, AR uses the existing environment and overlays new information on top of it.

Mixed Reality (MR) – MR sometimes referred to as hybrid reality, is the merging of real and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualisations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time.

Pennant’s VR Journey

Pennant’s move into VR since 2006 was a natural progression from the Computer Based Training (CBT), e-learning and 3D media products for which we have established a solid reputation across a range of sectors. Development of our VR capability has been progressive and we now have a core team of highly skilled VR designers and technologists.

VR technology is developing rapidly and Pennant, like other businesses, uses the latest technology available. The systems we use are designed to incorporate room-scale technology and allow the user to walk around and use motion-tracked hand-held controllers to realistically manipulate objects, interact with precision, communicate and experience immersive environments.

Currently Pennant’s VR portfolio is supplied to the Defence, Aerospace, Rail and Safety critical industries. Our creative and innovative team have the capability to support your bespoke AR requirements, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
