The next generation Virtual Reality software for imaging in Life- & Medical Sciences

Since its first display at Neuroscience 2015, our software has been under rapid development and enables now to travel freely within 3D & 4D images. With gesture controls to measure and navigate through images, we offer a powerful tool to evaluate data and gain new insights.

arivis InViewR: Gesture controls

True Immersive Virtual Reality Microscopy 


arivis InViewR enables users to experience their data in Virtual Reality. Explore and interact with 3D or 4D datasets by natural movements of the head and body. For the first time Direct Volume Rendering in combination with VR technology allows free navigation through data sets derived from various imaging techniques like:


  • Light Sheet Microscopy
  • Confocal Microscopy
  • Electron Microscopy
  • Computer Tomography
  • Magnetic Resonance Tomography


Displaying image data in a Virtual Reality environment is closer to reality than a 2D image will ever be. It restores the context of tissues and interconnected structures. Our intuitive displaying method helps users explore, evaluate and interact with their large, complex image data in many fields, including:


  • Neurosciences
  • Developmental Biology
  • Cell Biology
  • Cancer Research
  • Immunology

Immersive VR without compromises

Specialists argue that Surface Rendering is not enough to see inner structures and intensity changes inside cells and along a timeline.

Our Direct Volume Rendering technique, allocates every single data point of the original 3D images to a voxel within the rendered object. The user can move freely and inspect the specimen from any angle and position without limitations. This also implies that measurements within a volume, verification of co-localizations or following structures in 4D space are possible.

Using arivis InViewR

Virtual Reality offers the possibility to inspect specimen in a totally new and intuitive way. Explore and interact with 3D or 4D datasets by natural movements of the head and body.
The user can fully immerse in the data using Oculus Rift glasses and a Leap Motion Controller.
Featuring hand gestures to navigate, create clipping planes or set measurements, we offer a tool to evaluate data and gain new insights to develop creative analysis strategies.

Workflow with arivis InViewR

arivis InViewR: inner structures of a whole lung

We support file formats of all major hardware suppliers as well as custom made solutions. There are no limitations on data size, since we combined the capabilities of the arivis visualization technology to do fast and efficient rendering of large datasets, up to terabyte sizes.

3D Rendering 

Based on the image metadata information, our software will generate a 3D representation of the image data with one click. Using our highly interactive color mapping and opacity functions, the rendered object can be adapted to the users needs

The user can now fully immerse in the data using Oculus Rift glasses and a Leap Motion Controller. It is possible to inspect the data from essentially any position within the specimen. Hand gestures are used to create clipping planes and perform measurements, enabling a unique level of interaction with the data.

Experience Direct Volume Rendering on your cellphone

The 360° experience is even more impressive while watching the video on the YouTube App on your mobile device (tablet, phone). Open the video on the YouTube App and move your mobile device around to have a look around while the video is playing.
The application makes your mobile device the center of the image and uses its built in gyroscopes. Move your mobile device around your body to see the data surrounding you!
