Developing Cross-Platform XR Applications with OpenXR

Nov 9

01:15 PM - 01:40 PM

Description

OpenXR has transformed the way developers deliver cross-platform AR/VR experiences. As a royalty-free open standard from the Khronos Group, OpenXR provides high-performance access to AR and VR devices. The OpenXR standard enables application developers to program to a single, common, high-performance API which supports a number of different AR and VR platforms. Containing everything an application needs to drive XR devices in a system, OpenXR helps applications run on a multitude of platforms, allowing hardware manufacturers to gain access to a broader range of pre-existing content. In this session, Brent Insko, Lead XR Architect for Intel and OpenXR Working Group Chair, is joined by executive producer from Asobo, Antoine Bezborodko, who will talk about developing the Micosoft Flight Simulator VR , what motivated him to use OpenXR and the value it brings to users. Brent will share recent industry developments for OpenXR, explain how XR developers can integrate OpenXR into their workflows, and share updates about expanded augmented reality support that is under development for OpenXR. Brent and Antoine will highlight the role OpenXR plays in getting gaming, entertainment and even enterprise XR developers to a common ground. Developers will leave with a fresh understanding of how to leverage OpenXR to create cross-platform XR experiences.
