Release Update - July 17, 2019

Jul 29. 2019
By: Scott Edwards

Up to this point Modus VR has been geared exclusively to residential integrators. In this update we are excited to bring you commercial AV products and materials. This will allow integrators to use Modus VR in even more scenarios.

We first showed Modus VR's commercial applications at Infocomm Orlando this year. The response was incredible. Integrators immediately saw the benefit of showing commercial clients their room in real-time and creating an unforgettable sales experience. We left Infocomm excited to grow Modus VR in the commercial space. To start, this release focuses on conference rooms, training rooms, and huddle spaces. Below are a few example rooms built using the new features in this release.

New: Shure MXA 910 Microphone - We've also added functionality to show the steerable lobes of the Shure mic. In the properties tab of the menu you'll see 8 lobes that you can show, hide, change lobe width, and create target coverage area. To steer a lobe, jump to the location you want the lobe to point to and hit the target button on the right. A blue cone will appear showing coverage. You'll know you are in a coverage area if you look at the mic and you see a blue cloud.
