The University of Portsmouth is promoting its Centre for Creative and Immersive eXtended Reality (CCIXR) to the public at a free event called Taking Reality to a New Dimension.

The event, on Wednesday 6 July, enables attendees to discover how technology such as VR and motion capture can be utilised by different industries.

Guests will hear from speakers who are pioneering XR innovations in a diverse range of sectors.

The university says its £7m centre is the first purpose-built facility for innovation in eXtended Reality (XR) in the UK.

CCIXR business director, Pippa Bostock, said: “The potential applications for XR technology, across all kinds of businesses and sectors, are vast. From training solutions to the metaverse; immersive art, to new ways of promoting new products and services.

“At the heart of CCIXR is our aim to make XR more accessible, both to those interested in it as a career and people who could use XR to benefit their business or organisation. For this event, we have an incredible line-up of speakers who’ll be sharing how they’re using XR and its impact on everything from theatre performances to facial recognition.”
