Guided Viewing

What is a Guided Viewing

EnvisionVR’s Guided Viewings allow the presenter with their tablet to control the VR user’s experience.

The presenter and viewer can either be in the same location (face to face) or different locations (remote).

In this scenario, the presenter sets up both the tablet and the headset.

  2. Open the EnvisionVR App.

The Tablet allows you to change views between an overview of the scene with the VR user in it to what they are seeing.
