No, you can use Improov with a regular computer with our desktop application.

Yes, you can create an encrypted archive containing your data.

You can connect your Improov applications through an online session ID or by creating a private server on your local network and connecting to an IP adress or computer name.

Yes.

It is easy to connect through internet using an online session.

If you are using a private server you have to make sure that all participants can reach it through a public IP address.

Currently you have to share the 3D model to all participants manually. The files need to be directly accessible by each PC (on the local hard-drive or a shared network folder).

We are working on an automatic solution, coming soon.

Since the 3D models have to be locally accessible by each user, the model is not streamed over the internet. The only information that are shared are the synchronization commands, so the bandwidth is really light. We are regularely doing demos over mobile network data.

Not yet.

Textures are supported on certain file formats. Contact us to have the most up to date list.

We have tested up to ten users at the same time, but it probably works with more.

Yes, you can protect your session by using a password.

Yes, you can collaborate with any kind of VR system at the same time, but also with the desktop windows application.

For more information, please contact our sales team.

Yes but only if you buy the license. This gives you access to our support web platform and software updates.

If you rent (SaaS) the license, the support/maintenance fees are already included in the pricing.

Yes, as an option, dongle or network server.
