In development for more than two and a half years, arivis InViewR has been constantly refined to provide users with the most natural and comfortable experience. When viewing images in VR it is important to supply the user with frame rates of at least 75 frames per second per eye and react to head movements in under 20ms so that the user does not feel seasick when immersed in the data. arivis InViewR utilizes patent pending volume rendering techniques to achieve this performance even with large datasets. arivis InViewR goes further positioning the user in a virtual room to make the user feel grounded and providing them context to “walk around” in. If a user gets lost, a simple button push resets the view. Advanced users can even control their environment, changing its visibility, transparency, and background color.
arivis InViewR offer the user a choice of control options. A user can utilize Leap Motion’s hand tracking to control movement with their bare hands. For those users that wish to take advantage of advance functions, hand controllers which provide extremely previse tracking and option buttons can be utilized. Regardless of control choice, learning to move and interact with data is an intuitive process with a short learning curve. arivis InViewR also provides the possibility to enable / disable tools and gestures to match the skill level or use case of the end user.
VR menus, including context sensitive help, have been designed to allow full control of all operations and tools while in the VR space to provide a seamless user experience. Users can interact with menus or VR objects (segments, measurements and markers) by laser pointing at them or reaching out to touch them in VR space. Menus are designed to have a consistent layout and consistent placement to allow easy use.
A tool changer allows the user to quickly select and change between tools while working in VR. Icons on the controller in VR clearly indicate what tool is in use and what mode the tool is currently in. A user never has to question what operation they are engaged in.
A tool specific menu, designed of each tool, allows the user to adjust tool properties and find out additional information seamlessly while working in VR space. It also allows users to globally toggle the visibility on and off for clipping planes, measurements, markers, overlays and segments.
A main menu provides all the necessary controls to work in VR space once a user has loaded a dataset. A user should never have to repeatedly take on and off the headset to go between the desktop world and the virtual world. The arivis InViewR main menu provides full control of the environment, the rendering settings, all the tools, and the properties of all measurements, markers, overlays, and segments. In the main menu VR objects may be selected to change their visibility state, edit them or reveal their properties.
