Short description

VIROO is a virtual reality solution that enables any organisation to launch real scale and multi-user virtual reality content in an easy and affordable way.

VIROO is a complete solution that transforms any physical room into a virtual reality room, by means of a tracking solution and a software that launches the VR content and manages the operations in the room.

The tracking solution, called Nmerso, consists of modular ceiling tiles that provide an absolute reference system and the trackers that read the information from the tiles and provide the position of the users in the room.
