Pixvana, the Seattle-based virtual reality startup, has teamed with luxury cruise line operator Seabourn to create a virtual reality (VR) training solution for waiter staff who must memorise a large 105-table, 12-serving-station dining room in a small time frame.
‘TableVision’ was designed and created by Pixvana’s production team and uses SPIN Studio, its proprietary VR platform.
“By creating tailored VR training experiences that leverage the VR superpowers — presence, empathy and immersion — we can maximise workforce engagement and retention,” Rachel Lanham, Pixvana’s COO said. “We believe there’s huge potential for immersive learning in the corporate world and Seabourn’s dedication to unparalleled service puts them at the forefront of innovative training in the cruise industry.”
Pixvana was launched in 2015, originally selling end-to-end cloud-based VR storytelling software. It now also develops VR experiences.
