We are excited to announce that Microsoft Mesh, a new platform that enables you to create custom, shared immersive experiences, is now available in public preview. As a Microsoft Cloud Solutions Partner, we want to share with you how Mesh can help you transform your business scenarios with virtual reality.
What is Microsoft Mesh?
Microsoft Mesh is a platform that allows you to organize and customize shared immersive event experiences tailored to your specific business needs. You can use Mesh to create events such as employee gatherings, training sessions, guided tours, or internal product showcases. You can customize events out of the box or leverage the power of Unity to build immersive experiences that push your imagination.
With Microsoft Mesh, you can:
- Build virtual environments that replicate physical space, visualize data that’s critical to your business, build immersive simulations and training for your business, and more.
- Harness the power of Microsoft Azure cloud services, such as Azure Spatial Anchors and Azure Remote Rendering, to create realistic and interactive 3D content.
- Connect with people across different devices and platforms, such as Windows PC and Meta Quest VR devices.
- Collaborate with co-organizers and attendees in real time, with features such as spatial audio, hand gestures, and avatar customization.
How can you get started with Microsoft Mesh?
There are two ways you can get started with Microsoft Mesh:
- If you want to create events with basic capabilities, you can use the Mesh app on Windows PC or Meta Quest VR devices. You can create single and multi-room events with up to 200 people, split into 16-person rooms. You can invite co-organizers to customize the event with a built-in no-code editor and invite attendees to engage with presenters and each other.
- If you want to create fully customized 3D experiences, you can use the Mesh toolkit for Unity. You can add custom scripts for interactivity, add physics-enabled collaboration, and display real-time web content. You can also use graphics and performance tools for optimizing the experience.
