We’re excited to announce the release of 3D avatars in SuperViz immersive meetings. All SuperViz account holders can now create customized avatars to meet, collaborate and present in 3D space.
“It’s another step on the road to the long-term vision of building a group virtual teleportation platform with full immersion. It’s a way to feel like yourself in the digital space. This takes us closer to being anywhere, any time, and feeling like everyone’s actually there together,” shares SuperViz Cofounder and CEO, Russ Rive.
SuperViz takes single-player 3D spaces and transforms them into collaborative multi-player environments. It enables streamlined immersive video conferencing inside spatial content including Matterport digital twins, 3D CAD models, and 360° tours. Partners will soon be able to use the SuperViz SDK to bring immersive meetings to their own spatial content products too.
The addition of personalized avatars will increase the sense of presence inside SuperViz meetings even further.
“SuperViz had webcams, the ultimate avatar, already, and now with the addition of customizable 3D avatars, we’re adding a more personal experience to immersive meetings,” says Rive.
“Previously, participants focused on the 3D scene in the meeting, the next step now is to see each other and appear in the meeting the way you want to represent yourself.”
Created through a partner integration with Ready Player Me, personal avatars are generated in a few moments from a selfie or photo upload in the SuperViz dashboard.
- There are also premade avatars to choose from, and hundreds of customization options.
- Customers will see a prompt to create their avatar once logged into their accounts. An intuitive interface guides the short process.
- Once they’re created, personalized avatars are automatically saved and appear in all your SuperViz meetings.
- You can edit your avatar any time by clicking the account button on the top right of your dashboard screen.
Meeting guests without a SuperViz account will be able to select between several premade avatar options when entering a meeting.
“We’ve been working to build out the platform for optimized functionality and performance, and now that these other technologies are catching up, we can incorporate features like cooler avatars without sacrificing performance. Our roadmap includes continuing to incorporate new technologies as they become available and feasible,” states Rive.
SuperViz continues to be a leader in connecting metaverse applications to real-world productivity. Personalized avatars are another step forward, supporting connection in remote work by helping us represent who we are in digital space.
