arivis VisionVR 3.4

arivis is excited to announce the latest release of its industry-leading Virtual Reality solution for interactive exploration of scientific imaging data.

VisionVR 3.4 enables users to experience their 3D and 4D images in an immersive environment together and work collaboratively on the same dataset. This update also includes powerful movie making capabilities and a new Transparency Render Mode for the visualization of highly dense volumetric datasets.

Top Features of arivis VisionVR 3.4:

Become an expert in movie making and share your VR Stories with others! With VisionVR 3.4 you are able to either export a VR Journey with bookmarks as an interactive slideshow or create fully immersive 360° movies, publication-ready as mp4 and in up to 8k resolution. As the director of your movie you create, edit and replay with a new intuitive tool set, mark certain points of interest, and export your work as a Journey or Story. No matter if you prefer VR or desktop editing, no matter if you produce your movie for immersive VR or interactive desktop viewing: impressing your audience has never been easier and more intuitive. Experience it for yourself!

VisionVR already is the leading solution for collaborative presentation and exploration of imaging datasets in virtual reality, with support for many online meeting platforms such as Microsoft Teams, GoToMeeting, Zoom or Cisco Webex, with integrated directional voice chat for a truly immersive experience. VisionVR 3.4 further improves on this with support for non-verbal communication options such as text chat, avatars and motion gestures. And we’ve listened to your feedback: handling of network/connection bandwidth and dataset download has been improved to ensure a smooth experience for every participant, and it’s easier now to change the current presenter.


In addition to the already available powerful volume rendering modes, VisionVR 3.4 now features an all-new Transparency Render Mode that is particularly useful for the visualization of densely packed volumes, such as from complex 3D high-resolution volume imaging datasets generated by light, X-ray, or electron microscopy instruments. With transparency rendering, you get the full picture of your object and a better understanding of spatial relations and connections that were hidden before.
