For many, Olympus is primarily an idea due to its cameras and lenses. However, one of the largest business segments of the Japanese company is in the field of clinical precision technologies. As the global leading manufacturer of opto-digital, innovative solutions for medicine technology, science and industry, Olympus strives to further develop and optimize its products. The in-house department for integrated operation theaters deals with the question, how the virtual reality technology can revolutionize the sales of medical engineering products and the purchase experience of its customers. Thus, together with T-Systems Multimedia Solutions, various possibilities have been tested and a proof of concept has been developed in order to find out how the virtual reality can design the planning of operation theaters for hospitals in the future in a simpler and more flexible manner.
Solution oriented project work in highly specialized teams

Usage of modern technologies for improving the user experience
Medical engineering products should be made virtually perceptible. The usage of Microsoft HoloLens for the projection of product holograms during the product presentation to the customer was an initial start point
Development of a specific application for the HoloLens, which reaches its capacity at the time of tests during the development phase. It must be a fully accessible, scaled VR application
Development of a so called “Proof of Concept” which is available in the testing phase for a VR show room projected using the HTC Vive Pro
