Leap into the future

Extended Reality

Leap into the future

Extended reality (XR) is a term referring to all real-and-virtual combined environments via human-computer interactions generated by computer technology and wearables. It includes representative forms such as augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR) and virtual reality (VR).

Why XR?

Why XR?

Since the advent of computers, interaction between the user and machine has been limited to a keyboard, mouse and touchscreen. These limitations are now being shattered by the technology advancements that have made it possible to bring XR to an economically viable and portable format. XR will define the next generation of computer interaction, human communication and storytelling. Collabora can help you take this leap into the future.

Collabora & XR

As XR takes the world by storm, Collabora has positioned itself as a technology leader in the area by helping the top XR innovators bring their products to market. Collabora's XR team has the experience and knowledge to assist your organization in developing XR related products and applications that push to boundaries of human-computer interaction in the modern world.

Standardization work

Standardization work

Khronos’ open APIs have been valuable to the industry and Open Source community. They strike a balance between vendor differentiation and required standardization, openness and innovation. As Extended Reality (XR) matures, a cooperatively developed open standard API is necessary and the logical next step.

Collabora is actively contributing to Khronos’ OpenXR open APIs. These APIs aim to establish two levels of interfaces, one to standardize the drivers required from equipment manufacturers and the other to unify the application interface exposed to engines used to produce AR and VR content. Standardized hardware/software interfaces must reduce fragmentation.
