Dell in the past months has shown its interest and dedication in virtual reality (VR) with the development of both software and hardware, and it was its hardware that it showcased at this year’s BroadcastAsia event in Singapore last week over three days.
At the event, which was also joint with CommunicAsia, the computer manufacturer showcased its latest range of VR ready desktops, the Dell Precision Tower Workstations. In the range there are the Dell Precision Tower 5810, 7810, and 7910, all of which have over 8GB memory, and use graphics cards such as AMD FirePro W9100, NVIDIA Quadro M6000 and M5000, and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 which is sold seperately.
Harveenpal Singh, Sr. Business Development at Asia Pacific & Japan Dell, acknowledges that VR is a fast developing industry, and that it can only grow with the support of creating hardware and software, and consuming it. He went on to say in the press release: “Dell has been delivering immersive computing experience for many years and is committed in enabling VR partners across the entire ecosystem besides providing advanced hardware configuration.
“BroadcastAsia provided the perfect opportunity to showcase how we can support the democratisation of VR for the masses in areas such as Education, Architecture & Real Estate, Manufacturing, and Advertising. We have had overwhelming response at the booth, and look forward to developing new partnerships in furthering the growth of VR in the APJ region”.
Dell has created VR software in the past, such as the Lonely Whale Experience which was its first delve into creating VR. The experience is a three-minute film to create awareness of how humans affect the lives of whales, which was created with 3D Live and Hollywood actor Adrian Grenier.
