Varjo Expands Reseller Network in Europe with Antycip Simulation
Company will supply Varjo HMDs to customers using its portfolio of professional VR and visual display solutions for training & simulation
Helsinki, Finland – 26 November 2019 – Varjo™ (Shadow in Finnish) Technologies, the leader in industrial-grade VR/XR headsets, today announced the expansion of its value-added reseller network with Antycip Simulation, one of Europe’s leading providers of virtual reality solutions, visual displays, simulation tools and engineering services. As part of the agreement, Antycip Simulation will provide Varjo HMDs to customers using its portfolio of professional VR and visual display solutions for training and simulation.
“Antycip Simulation provides a complete solution of both physical and virtual elements for simulation customers, enabling a fully immersive training experience,” said John Burwell, Global Lead Simulation and Training at Varjo. “We look forward to working with Antycip to give their customers access to Varjo’s professional-grade headsets which offer human-eye resolution, fully-integrated hand tracking and eye tracking capabilities, all which are particularly important in training use cases where trainees need to naturally interact with virtual environments and instructors need to assess human performance.”
In addition to Varjo’s recently announced VR-2 and VR-2 Pro virtual reality headsets, Antycip Simulation will also offer Varjo’s XR-1 Developer Edition, which makes it possible to mix virtual and real content for the first time ever, once it’s generally available. As a result, users are able to work on activities like design collaboration in the same room while also seeing other colleagues or collaborators.
“Antycip Simulation is pleased and enthusiastic to be partnering with Varjo,” said Michel Pronier, CEO of Antycip Simulation. “With its revolutionary vision of what VR and XR will mean for enterprises, Varjo integrates with Antycip’s vision and passion to work with the world’s best technology providers to help address our customers’ challenges.”
With Antycip Simulation’s strong presence in Europe, Varjo’s technology is now more accessible to clients through its showrooms where customers regularly visit for demonstrations, training, testing and project reviews. Antycip Simulation will be offering customers a unique opportunity to experience the new Varjo VR-2 Pro headset in its showrooms in Milan, Italy and Oxford UK, as well as at their headquarters in Paris, France.
