They improve workflows and productivity for many creative and classic industries: Film and Animation, XR, Automotive, Architecture, EdTech, Art or Tourism. Real-time engines ar boosting the possiblilities for XR production (cinematic VR, mobile AR, 360 video), accelerating data visualization and integration in architecture and interactivate and immerse learning and training.

The expert will explain these and other current application areas and gives an outlook on the future of game technologies.
