Dutch digital innovator Sam Media used extended reality to develop a better learning experience

As a leader in innovation, Sam Media makes the next generation of digital content accessible to everyone, on any device. On October the 14th, Sam Media will officially launch it’s latest e-learning and entertainment product, XR Academy. The product will be presented during a launch party at World Telemedia in Marbella.

A better learning experience for everyone

XR Academy enables consumers from all age groups to explore a wide range of immersive, high-quality educational content. The product is the result of a diverse team of thinkers, educators, computer scientists, software developers and 3D artists from all over the world, coming together with a shared mission to transform learning experiences with the latest technologies, and to overcome the two main challenges in VR education today: the lack of high-quality content, and the availability of VR headsets.

XR Academy has been designed to be compatible with all types of virtual reality headsets. Even consumers that don’t own a VR headset are able to engage with all the content effectively. All they need is a smartphone with internet access.

What is Extended Reality?

​​Extended reality (XR) is referring to all real-and-virtual combined environments and human-machine interactions generated by computer technology and wearables, where the ‘X’ represents a variable for any current or future spatial computing technologies. E.g. It includes representative forms such as augmented reality, mixed reality and virtual reality and the areas interpolated among them. Its connotation lies in the extension of human experiences, especially relating to the senses of existence (represented by VR) and the acquisition of cognition (represented by AR).

Product features

XR Academy allows consumers to take virtual field trips to a variety of destinations, such as Mount Everest, capital cities around the world, and faraway planets across the universe, all from the comfort and safety of their homes.

WORLD TELEMEDIA ANNOUNCES NEW 5* VENUE FOR OCTOBER ‘21 SHOW

With the much-anticipated return of World Telemedia, Marbella (13-15 Oct) comes news that the organisers have secured a fabulous new 5-Star venue – Hotel Don Pepe Grand Melia.

“It was definitely time for a change of scene, so we’re absolutely delighted to now offer our attendees a chance to do business in one of the most exclusive beachfront hotels In Marbella – they deserve it!”.

Says organiser Jarvis Todd, who goes on:    

“Covid has forced us to reimagine the traditional event format and this new venue offers bright and airy networking and exhibition spaces that open directly to outdoor terraces, wonderful tropical gardens, poolside cabanas and of course a private beach!”

Having been forced to postpone in 2020, the show returns to its usual early autumn slot, and with two years pent up demand, early indications are that, despite concerns around Covid – the show already looks set to be a classic.

World Telemedia has long held a reputation for being the leading “in person” event for buyers & suppliers of mobile payments, marketing, messaging, advertising, content, apps, VAS and traffic etc. However, thanks to the recent launch of the Telemedia8point1, World Telemedia is now set to reach an even wider “online” audience from across the global mCommerce ecosystem.

“When face to face meeting opportunities were restricted by Covid, we developed our own bespoke virtual event – but with a big difference – it never closes! It was also been specifically designed to support, complement and enhance our live “in person” events and even now provides a 24/7/365 contact and information exchange for over 1,100 active subscribers!”.

Says organiser Jarvis Todd, who goes on:    

“Face to face time has never been more valuable, so Telemedia 8.1 takes care of what’s best done online (researching potential partners, making initial contact, watching PPT presentations etc) – allowing our delegates to make the most of every minute they’re physically at the show”.
