“Sony succeeded in implementing NX in the fastest schedule in the world and we were able to improve our design process productivity by 25%. Although significant advancements have been made with NX, I wanted to achieve further evolution with a product that brings innovations allowing direct editing in an immersive environment. I believed that could be realized with Siemens and as a result, the XR head-mounted display was developed that could bring innovative products to market more rapidly,” said Sony’s Amatatsu.

Sony’s XR head-mounted display is a fundamental part of the forthcoming NX Immersive Designer, an integrated solution that combines Siemens’ industry-leading product engineering software, NX, exclusively with Sony’s breakthrough XR technology. This collaboration aims to deliver immersive design and collaborative product engineering capabilities.

“At Sony, we are committed to creators. In every line of our business, we want to enable creators to create, and the SRH-S1 does just that. Our head-mounted display and dedicated controllers let you create more intuitively in a fully immersive environment, allowing you to move freely between the virtual and real worlds — collaborating and creating with colleagues around the world in real-time, – and it will enable more innovation,” explained Hirohito Kondo, Deputy General Manager, XR Business Development Division, Product Management Department of Sony.
