VR Engineered for the Enterprise

The enterprise-only Lenovo ThinkReality VRX is built to be the VR solution for workers everywhere. The immediacy and fidelity of new digital tools experienced through extended reality (XR) devices means workforces are becoming nearly unconstrained by time and space. From improving efficiency in employee training and virtual collaboration to expanding design and engineering tasks in 3D, XR technologies are becoming more important than ever for businesses enabling workers to do more.

“Lenovo’s customers are looking for reliable, flexible, and scalable gateways into the growing Enterprise Metaverse. They need business-class solutions for the new realities of working in virtual environments and hybrid scenarios,” said Vishal Shah, GM of XR and Metaverse, Lenovo. “We engineered the Lenovo ThinkReality VRX to be the VR solution of choice for training and collaborating in immersive 3D because that’s the future of work.”

Engineered to meet the needs of enterprise organizations with purpose-built construction and hygienic materials, the ThinkReality VRX is built for long life and reliable operation. It is also supported by enterprise-grade security requirements with a protected supply chain and manufacturing process.

The new VR headset incorporates a variety of design advancements to make it more comfortable for extended VR sessions. Innovative pancake optics help keep the form factor slim. The high-capacity battery is optimally positioned for better weight distribution, and the ThinkReality VRX features a unique venting system that channels heat from the display away from the wearer’s face.

The ThinkReality VRX is part of Lenovo’s ThinkReality portfolio of XR solutions that includes a cloud software platform to help deploy and manage enterprise applications and content on a global scale. The ThinkReality VRX can also be supported by other leading mobile device management (MDM) platforms. Additional XR solutions from Lenovo include ThinkReality xR Services; providing vendor agnostic, end-to-end, white-glove services to help customers from strategy to delivery.

The ThinkReality VRX joins Lenovo’s hardware portfolio of commercial XR solutions which also includes the ThinkReality A3, the most versatile augmented reality (AR) smart glasses ever designed for the enterprise. Whether the enterprise is expanding the use of immersive experiences in VR to enhance learning and collaboration or using AI-enabled digital overlays of real-world scenarios with AR to transform workflows, Lenovo ThinkReality has the solutions needed.

Open Ecosystem of XR Applications

Building the Enterprise Metaverse requires interoperability and the collective efforts of leading hardware and software vendors. To this end, Lenovo is dedicated to collaborating with industry leaders to advance the growth and adoption of XR solutions to transform how people work, learn and take care of their health. Enterprises and other organizations can develop for the ThinkReality VRX by utilizing Snapdragon Spaces™ XR Developer Platform and its OpenXR-based SDK. The accessible Snapdragon Spaces ecosystem enables developers to pioneer innovative experiences that lead the next generation of spatial computing.

Lenovo is working with several XR developers independently and through the Snapdragon Spaces platform to make cutting edge applications available on the ThinkReality VRX. The most popular enterprise VR use cases today are immersive training for hard and soft skills, as well as collaboration in 3D environments.

Lenovo ThinkReality is collaborating with these developers among many others through Snapdragon Spaces and is continually expanding its ecosystem.

Hard skills training, such as using tools and learning processes, are critical for jobs in manufacturing, automotive, healthcare, and other technical trades. Immersive learning is cost effective, safer, and more impactful than traditional training with potentially dangerous equipment and expensive resources.

Soft skills training is important for a variety of abilities that advance a modern workforce, including communication, empathy, and knowledge. From sales skills and customer service to compliance, culture and leadership, immersive roleplaying with digital humans and other training scenarios helps team members and organizations be successful.

Meeting and collaborating in virtual spaces are the next enterprise use case with the power to transform how people work and conduct business. Helping reduce expensive carbon-producing travel and enhancing productivity with 3D models or digital twins brings teams and customers closer together more easily through novel digital platforms.

Lenovo ThinkReality will announce more collaborations with leading XR developers in the near future. Developers creating enterprise XR solutions can contact ThinkReality for more information.
