Immerse launches free Unity-based Software Development Kit for scalable VR content

15 Nov, 2021

The Immerse SDK empowers all VR creators to easily build and scale valuable enterprise-ready content.

London, 15th November, 2021 – Immerse, a globally recognised immersive technology company, today announced it is making part of its industry-leading Immerse SDK (software development kit) free for developers to build instantly scalable, enterprise-ready VR applications to meet growing market needs. 

“Our aim is to reduce the time and cost of enterprise VR development – not just for us, but for everyone,” explains Justin Parry, Immerse COO. “We know that enterprise organisations are looking for standardisation, both in terms of user experience and data. This new version of the SDK provides this free-of-charge, but also offers an optional upgrade path to an industry-leading and scalable XR platform.”

Built for Unity, the Immerse SDK helps developers get up and running quickly, while simplifying and solving the common technical and production challenges of building, hosting and distributing measurable and scalable VR applications. Features of the free Immerse SDK include:

    • Physics-based interaction library to reduce development time and to drive standardisation for enterprise VR interactions.
    • Cross-platform and device agnostic to provide support for a wide range of headsets and other devices and to allow the widest range of use cases and applications.
    • Predictable roadmap with forthcoming features including a non-player character system, a standardised UI system, tools to make voice-over and subtitling easier and more.
    • Optional enterprise platform upgrade simplifies switch on enterprise-level multiplayer, distribution, reporting, security and integration when you need it.

Together with the Immerse Platform, the SDK helps organisations realise the full potential of virtual reality and provides a means through which enterprises can easily scale their own applications and content. For content creators, it also has the added benefits of an upsell path for existing customers and referral opportunities.

As a company leading innovation in the training sector, Immerse has made its SDK available for free as a part of the solution to an industry-wide problem. In The Upskill Ultimatum, an extensive research report from Immerse, it was revealed that nearly 50% of US and UK employees are prepared to move companies if they don’t receive the training they need. The report has some experts wondering if VR training can help to curb the ‘big quit’.
