NextNav & echo3D partnership
NextNav (Nasdaq: NN), a leader in next-generation GPS has partnered with echo3D, a cloud platform that is revolutionizing the way 3D, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) content is stored and streamed. Through this partnership, NextNav’s vertical location service, Pinnacle, will provide echo3D developers with the crucial 3D location data needed to build immersive metaverse content.
Over 16,000 developers rely on the echo3D platform for the tools and infrastructure needed to generate faster and lighter 3D, AR, and VR experiences. Now, these developers will have the ability to create digital content utilizing NextNav’s industry-leading 3D location technology, opening up new possibilities for more immersive and realistic digital content. For example, different augmented reality content within a multi-story building can be tied to an end user’s vertical location – unlocking realistic views, perspectives, and experiences, and even allowing users to purchase and collect items with location-based validation.
“Our partnership with echo3D enables developers to build immersive experiences, games, and applications that reflect our real world,” said Dan Hight, NextNav VP of Business Development and Partnerships. “As we look ahead toward the building of the metaverse, our collaboration with echo3D marks a key development in enabling the digital layer that will soon exist on top of our physical world.”
With its unmatched ability to convert, compress, and optimize 3D models, animations, and interactive content, echo3D can deliver virtual experiences to any smartphone, headset, or browser. To date, developers using echo3D have built cloud-connected games, AR advertisement campaigns, NFT marketplaces, and more.
