Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) Core Concepts – 1 Day Training Workshop

Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) Core Concepts – 1 Day Training Workshop


By 2021, the combined market size of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technology investments is expected to reach 215 billion U.S. dollars. All around us we are now seeing examples of where both VR and AR can reshape existing ways of doing things- buying a new home, educating children, interacting with a doctor or watching a concert with VR. The recent launches of Apple's AR Kit and Google's ARC Core validates the tech giants continued investment in AR. Some commentators now believe that AR investment will surpass VR investment by 2019. What is certain is that both VR and AR advances and price points decline these immersive technologies offer a future potential to unleash a multi-billion industry and possibly be as game-changing as the advent of the PC and mobile phone. 

Applications of both VR and AR are almost limitless ranging from experiences based to live-action, replicating traditional storytelling and filmmaking, pioneering 360 content production computer-generated content for learning and education and much more.

What do attendees say about the workshop on completion? Below are some customer feedback from attendees who have attended our workshops in 2017:

"I wanted to say that I had an EXTREMELY useful day at the VR Workshop – it covered all of the questions I had and I took away a lot of ideas as my knowledge about VR was greatly enhanced after this day. What I loved the most was the demo and examples given, the opportunity to play around with the equipment and to see the endless VR possibilities within a day. The VR Workshop has broadened my perspectives and awaken my imagination. A HUGE THANK YOU to both of you for organising and running this great workshop – it will certainly make a difference to my line of work"

'As a producer for a production company I found this course incredibly useful. I was specifically looking for a workshop that was really practical and would expand my knowledge of the production process, trends and how best to use VR creatively. This course certainly delivered on these requirements and has inspired me to go learn more about this space' 
Production manage- leading Ad Agency in London

"We really enjoyed this workshop. Jonathan clearly had a huge wealth of knowledge of the VR industry and was able to cover a lot of the positive aspects and pitfalls of VR. It was an very interesting journey through the history of VR and also the different types of virtual media that existed. In many respects, this has given us more confidence in identifying the type of virtual media that would benefit a training solution we could offer in our area of business. We’re greatly appreciative to Jonathan for bringing some clarification to this from the huge range of VR choices. We made many notes of websites and facts concerning AR, VR and mixed reality that were really useful. It was also great that Jonathan had an understanding of the different range of tools that we could use to get started on VR. Jonathan also gave us some good leads on future VR training events, some of which we’ve signed up to already." Digital Services Producer, The Police
