We’ve been busy behind the scenes working in various regions to make PROJECTR® successful. Here’s some news snippets from across the business:
At PROJECTR® Wellington, a series of three collaborative projects are underway for a distinguished New Zealand Government entity. These involve over half of the resident companies at that Centre and were secured by PROJECTR Founder, Michael Gregg, to assist the residents to demonstrate their wide range of collective skills with an iconic client.
As reported on the Wellington site, PROJECTR and, US computer company, Pure Storage have partnered to install a powerful Kubernetes cluster into the centre for residents to use to render VR environments and process AI models.
For the team tackling major photogrammetry projects at RealityVirtual, having extreme computational power provides endless new opportunities.
For artificial intelligence startup, Intela AI, the high performance Kubernetes cluster will provide on-demand AI infrastructure, enabling their team of data scientists to accelerate the development of machine learning models for their own product development and for client projects.
Of note, a decision has been made to proceed with the establishment of a PROJECTR® Auckland XR Centre. We’re in the midst of negotiations on a fabulous central location and will be making an announcement once these are concluded. We’re also looking forward to announcing the Centre Director for this venue at the same time.
Michael stepped down from his role as Chair of the New Zealand VR/AR Association early in July to focus on his XR companies and the growing PROJECTR business. His retirement follows a two year stint as the founding Chair of the NZVRARA. He is spending much of July based in Taiwan to progress the PROJECTR® Taipei venue and continue building partnerships with global tech companies.
