XR includes virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), haptics, holograms and an expanding range of immersive tools that use and enhance our natural senses. The consequence will be a more intuitive relationship between the real and virtual worlds. Immersive tools are improving the speed and quality of training, allowing distant experts to “be” present and active anywhere, enhancing customer experience and raising productivity in everything from design, to assembly, to marketing.

Netflix versus Amazon Prime Video – depth versus breadth

Article | February 23, 2020

The first half of 2021 has been a year of continued change and disruption for subscription video.
