New Markerless Augmented Reality Technology for Retailers, Manufacturers and Homebuilders Unveiled in Marxent VisualCommerce™ Product Update

Update to VisualCommerce3.0 features Marxent’s
stable, scalable and proprietary patent-pending markerless AR solution
for home furnishings, building products, built environments and more

DAYTON, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Marxent,
the leader in Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) for
retailers and manufacturers, today announced an update to its VisualCommerce™
3.0
3D product platform that will enable a markerless
augmented reality
solution for mobile in-field and
direct-to-consumer sales. Home furnishings retailers, home builders, and
manufacturers can now offer customers a flexible, endless aisle shopping
experience with photo-real AR technology made available from anywhere.

Designed for omnichannel retailers and manufacturers, Marxent’s
VisualCommerce™ platform is a cloud-based content management system for
smart 3D products that is purpose-built for use across channels. The
VisualCommerce™ platform enables retailers to invest in a single 3D
product library that can be then used to create 3D experiences
appropriate to various points in the retail customer journey, including
markerless AR, touchscreen, VR showrooms and more.

Marxent’s proprietary markerless AR technology allows users with single
camera mobile devices to place a single 3D product into a real-world
context without the use of a QR code or image marker. With markerless,
AR is now more portable and more accessible to a broader base of users.
Using the camera on a tablet or mobile device to orient the 3D object in
real space, the selected object can be viewed at a distance or up close,
and manipulated to fit in real-world environments.

“Our focus on creating a stable, realistic markerless AR solution that
scales is a direct response to the requirements of real clients in the
retail and building products verticals,” said Beck Besecker, CEO and
co-founder, Marxent. “Retailers and manufacturers have long been
interested in AR and VR as visualization tools, but issues with
stability, scale and product realism have held them back from fully
investing. Now they can be confident that an investment in 3D product
strategies for in-context shopping will perform, resonate and pay off.”

“Many of the early markerless AR solutions are still contending with the
challenges of realism, tracking and accurate placement in a virtual
scene,” said Barry Besecker, CTO and co-founder of Marxent. “The
markerless technology we’ve developed at Marxent is designed with
commerce and consumer use in mind, using algorithms and relative
positioning to deliver immersive, realistic and detailed visualization
that can build buyer confidence and help drive purchase decisions.”
