Accenture has invested in Forma Vision, a provider of live-streamed, 3D volumetric video technology that allows 3D holographic images of people, environments, and objects to be beamed into metaverse from any location such as office, home, or other.
Until now, the metaverse opportunity has been restricted to enterprise use cases suitable for avatar-to-avatar interactions. Now, using Forma Vision’s cost-effective, live-streaming volumetric video technology, enterprises of any scale can teleport people, things, and places into their metaverse experience.
Senior managing director of Accenture’s Metaverse Continuum business group, David Treat, said, “We believe Forma Vision’s volumetric video technology will enable more immersive, engaging interactions and help further bridge real and virtual worlds by allowing people, places, and things to be more authentically represented in the metaverse.”
Forma Vision is now the latest company to be a part of Accenture Ventures’ Project Spotlight, which is an engagement and investment program focusing on investing in the companies that create or apply disruptive enterprise technologies.
Tom Lounibos, managing director of Accenture Ventures, said, “For enterprise teams, Forma Vision’s holographic meeting platform can enable remote meetings and other experiences in a highly engaging, 3D virtual format.”
