Users can now launch a Zoom, Teams, or Skype meeting, breakout from within the InfernoAR platform, or upload a recorded meeting and make it keyword searchable with closed captioning in 64 languages, NexTech said, adding that features such as live moderated questions and simple registration mean the platform can be extended to corporate meetings, school classes and lectures, product demonstrations, and trade show presentations.
In a statement, Evan Gappelberg, NexTech chief executive, said: “We are continuing to move very fast with video conferencing technology integrations into our InfernoAR platform and expect to have even more exciting integrations completed in short order.
"With Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Skype we have extended the appeal of the InfernoAR platform. As everyone has a different preference or existing account for video conferencing, this new integration allows users to pick which platform they want to use which further strengthens our market position”.
NexTech also said that with the coronavirus pandemic disrupting all large gatherings, demand for remote training and virtual events was “surging which will undoubtedly drive awareness and adoption of the company’s video conferencing, live streaming and remote training platform with integrated AR features”.
The company is currently pursuing the use of AR technology across four key verticles, eCommerce, education, entertainment and advertising.
