It's Time to Discuss Standards

The Toronto Star at Immersed"The ITA is a unique forum for diverse companies to identify collaborative opportunities to accelerate the mainstream adoption of virtual and augmented reality. Consumer-ready VR and AR will require many interoperating standards, and Khronos looks forward to working with the ITA to help make that vision a reality." - Neil Trevett, President, Khronos Group (makers of OpenGL).

After the success of Immersed, the ITA's first industry-building conference in Toronto, the participating members and industry came to the realization that the alliance is credible, strong, and self reliant. Our membership is capable of doing just about anything by working for what's good for the industry at large, leveraging our contacts and tenured expertise for everyone's benefit, and by tackling the problems others shy away from.  We also have a tenured management and advisory team that has a demonstrated history of positively influencing and growing the industry.

On the request of our membership, the alliance is building standards-based working groups. We are starting with virtual reality and are working towards a future where there is a recognized specification for measurable VR quality assurance and industry-wide compatibility. Standards aren't going to be rushed out the door as there are all kinds of considerations and discussions that need to take place amongst the membership to get a viable result. What matters most is that the serious conversations are beginning, all qualified ITA members get an equal vote and opportunity to participate, and it's all happening in a well recognized non-profit organization - The Immersive Technology Alliance.

Immersed 2015 Has Been Scheduled

Immersed 2014It's confirmed!  Immersed 2015 is scheduled for October 4-6 in the new year in Toronto.  To celebrate, we are working to get the 2014's recorded sessions online so others can experience some of the magic that happened at the show.  The website has also been updated with pictures from the inaugural event.  More than this, while the 2014 edition came and went, we are still getting news from attendees who have benefited from the conference.  Some of these stories have been outlined in our latest announcements.  This is why Immersed was founded, and why it will happen again in 2015.

Follow Immersed on Twitter to get instant notifications of when new recorded content is available.

See You at the B.I.G. Summit!

BIG-Summit-2015

The Immersive Technology Alliance is proud to be a media sponsor for the upcoming B.I.G. Summit taking place on January 20, 2015 in Miami Beach, Florida.   This one day event is an industry-building conference, and features Randi Zuckerberg, one of the pioneering entrepreneurs behind Facebook.  A strong focus is being placed on virtual and augmented reality, and leading names attached include EON Reality, Next Galaxy Corp., Vuzix Corporation, and more.  Wired Magazine's Peter Rubin will be speaking and sharing, so this is definitely a must-attend event; especially for residents of the MIami Beach area that are seriously interested in this space.

In addition to a strong agenda, meals are included making this an excellent value to interested entrepreneurs and businesses.
