VR/AR Association presents this special webinar with Amazon
Creating Immersive VR, AR and 3D Experiences Using Amazon Sumerian.
Consumers are desiring more immersive and engaging experiences, but developing such experiences can be challenging and costly. Amazon Sumerian strips away this complexity by making it easier, faster, and less expensive to develop and deploy AR, VR, and 3D applications. Join us for an overview of the Sumerian IDE, console, editor and hosts as well as renderings of demo use cases. In this hands-on webinar, participants will learn how Sumerian’s browser-based approach to application development is being used to create and publish scenes.
