March 3, 2022 – Virtual reality is one of the most compelling ways to bring crime scene investigators, prosecutors, defense attorneys and jurors into the scene. But creating a virtual reality environment from laser scanned point clouds has required advanced software skills and multiple imports and exports. Now a new software development brings VR within reach for every agency.
TruView VR, a free new extension of the popular TruView desktop viewer, lets you enter your laser scanned scenes at true-to-life scale with no conversion or republishing required. Using a Windows mixed reality headset and controllers such as the HTC Vive or HP Reverb, you can view, walk, fly or teleport through a scene and perform linear measurements in VR.
Rather than viewing a scaled representation of the scene, you can step into it and walk around. Look around corners and under objects while getting a true sense of the space.
The new capabilities are available with the latest release of TruView, TruView 2022.0.0.
