As part of our ongoing commitment to bring HoloMeeting to the full Windows 10 ecosystem we are happy to announce that the app now supports Surface Pro integration.

This means that in addition to the HoloLens and Windows Mixed Reality headsets the application can now interact with Surface Pro tablet devices. This brings about an increased level of possibility, portability and scalability for businesses who are looking to engage with a new way of meeting, collaborating and provide additional remote assistance to field assets and front-line workers.

Collaborate across devices

The Surface Pro tablet has been described as a 'true mobile computer' which means that users can have the full functionality of a Windows 10 device on the go, taking advantage of the lightness and portability of a tablet.

By taking advantage of the advanced processing power of Surface Pro systems we have been able to connect our HoloMeeting application to the ecosystem so users can enjoy the benefits and features of HoloMeeting on the Surface Pro. This includes much sought-after features such as the Live Feed which means that users can feed HoloLens to Surface Pro tablets and vice-versa, therefore bringing increased opportunities to enterprise customers across a range of potential use cases.

Increased possibilities for HoloLens Remote Assistance

HoloMeeting brings dispersed teams together by simplifying remote communication and collaboration. However remote assistance is often cited as a clear potential use case of HoloMeeting and is already being used in the field by some of our Early Access Scheme clients to this end.

While it is likely that field operatives will use HoloLens in their day to day operations, this might not be true of the remote expert. However, by adding support for HoloMeeting through Surface Pro tablets, in addition to the Windows Mixed Reality Headsets, we are offering a multi-dimensional solution for company remote assistance needs and beyond from a standalone application.

Mixed Reality functionality will still be utilised as the layout has been designed to be similar to that of the Windows Mixed Reality headsets, therefore making the application uniform across multiple devices. The Surface Pro, however, gives new possibilities for using the application both for remote assistance but for meetings that go beyond the limitations of Skype and other similar conference applications.

More features to be announced as they come

As we are collaborating with businesses in our early access HoloMeeting Beta in order to meet client's needs, HoloMeeting is constantly being adjusted and improved. We are glad to keep you informed about the latest features.
