Edison Pro is a newly available high-end presentation tool that is claimed to quickly transform any live, online presentation, or conference session into a fully immersive experience using AR and virtual environments.
It is template-based for ease-of-use and requires no previous experience in graphics, video, image or 3D object creation. It 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 PDF.
Brainstorm’s Edison Pro promises to make live AR simple
Based on Brainstorm’s real-time 3D technology, Edison Pro allows content providers to turn a simple presentation into a complete interactive show without expensive hardware or a studio setup. A complete standalone system is 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.

It uses drag-and-drop and ships with a library of pre-defined templates, scenes, furniture, pointers, screens and other objects to populate a scene, plus a number of interactive templates for quizzes and polls to customise the event. It is compatible with Unreal Engine, so that photorealistic CG scenes can be used as 3D background.
Ricardo Montesa, CEO, Brainstorm, said: “[Edison Pro] has been developed to bring the high-end quality of broadcast shows to users at a whole new price point, without requiring the expensive and time-consuming ad-hoc generation of new assets.”
