Brainstorm is launching Edison PRO, a presentation tool that is said to quickly transform any live online presentation or conference session into a fully immersive experience using augmented reality and virtual environments.

Template-based for ease-of-use and requiring no previous experience in graphics, video, image, or 3D object creation, Edison PRO allows users to enhance their speech and storytelling with real-time 3D graphics and other visual aids, as well as include themselves in the presentation. All they need as a starting point is a PowerPoint file or a PDF.

Based on Brainstorm’s real-time 3D technology, Edison PRO allows broadcasters and online content providers to turn a simple presentation into a complete interactive show through a platform that does not require expensive hardware or a studio setup.

Ready to work out of the box, all that is required is a camera and a portable chroma set to include the presenter in the virtual world with the presentation.

Edison ships with a library of pre-defined templates, scenes, furniture, pointers, screens and other objects to populate the scene, plus a number of interactive templates for quizzes and polls to further customise the event. It is also fully compatible with Unreal Engine (UE), allowing Unreal’s photorealistic scenes to be used as 3D backgrounds for a presentation, enhancing the look of presentations.

An optional Edison UC (Edison Unreal Control) plug-in allows for controlling and editing the blueprints, objects and properties of the UE scene directly from Edison’s own user-friendly interface.

“By coupling advanced technology with extremely easy operation, Edison PRO helps users to bring their live and online presentations to a whole new level,” commented Brainstorm CEO Ricardo Montesa. “It has been developed to bring the high-end quality of broadcast shows to users at a whole new price point, leveraging our more than 25 years of broadcast experience to create impactful presentations using pre-existing content, without requiring the expensive and time-consuming ad-hoc generation of new assets.”
