Where Does AR Fit into the Next Generation of Video Calls?

On Spatial Perspectives, host Dan Cui will have a one-on-one dialog with innovators and thought leaders in the growing Spatial Reality, or Spatial Computing, market. Cui will invite guests who can discuss the real world use cases of the technology and how it could benefit mankind while exploring any drawbacks and how they might be mitigated.

 

The next generation of video calls is here, powered by AR. To discuss this new AR technology application, host Dan Cui welcomed Ryan Fink, Founder, and CEO of Streem. Streem offers a platform that takes video calls to the next level, facilitating better communication and collaboration with AR.

Fink explained the three pillars of the product. “First is the video, then AR enhances the experience, and finally is the data capture to extract context, spatial information, measurements, and images.”

Streem experienced a lot of interest once the pandemic hit. “It accelerated adoption, for sure, as businesses need to keep doors open and couldn’t physically go into spaces,” Fink noted.

That need led to collaborations with businesses big and small, including Lowe’s. “They jumped on the technology and offered it for free to their contractor network,” Fink shared.

Other companies use it with great results, including diagnosing repair issues remotely so that contractors come with the right parts and spend as little time as possible in the customer’s home.

Fink also spoke about a cleaning company using the program for quoting. “They can virtually see the space, capture video and data, and quote remotely. They are using Streem for 82% of their quotes. It also allowed them to allot the exact amount of time to clean the space,” he added.

What’s next for the app and the AR industry? Cui and Fink discussed the use of LIDAR, which allows for 3-D masking and interacting with models.
