When it comes to researching information on the virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) industries there’s a vast wealth of reports, white papers and more online. Finding all of it, on the other hand, is another matter. Making for a time-consuming endeavour. So The Academy of International Extended Reality (AIXR) has done the hard work, compiling a resource portal featuring over 150 reports to peruse.
The free aggregated portal has mostly been created via content found online, with AIXR supported in the process by its VR and AR Steering Panels. Some of the resources have been exclusively shared by creators for use on the portal.
Beneficial to those working on white papers, research or reports relating to the XR industry, they’ll be able to find material on a range of topics and industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, Big Data, investment, monetisation and more.
As mentioned, you could find most of it online by looking yourself but the AIXR portal takes away a lot of that headache. It offers users the ability to search for content via a number f different variables such as date, industry, author, topic, and title, which should save some time.
“Information is made to be shared, by spotlighting and aggregating insightful content we can remove barriers for anyone looking to educate themselves while building a strong and bright future for the industry. That is at the heart of what AIXR does,” said Daniel Colaianni, Chief Executive of AIXR in a statement.
As a dedicated not-for-profit organisation working to promote the XR industry, AIXR is working on a number of initiatives alongside the resources portal. These include AIXR Insights, an education arm with articles and case studies industry professionals. And there’s the VR Awards, an annual ceremony highlighting the best the immersive industry has to offer. The awards take place during November in London, UK, with the finalists for the twelve categories revealed a couple of months ago.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of AIXR, reporting back with the organisations’ latest initiatives.
