Using Augmented Reality to Keep Construction Going Through Livestreaming Solutions

Today, construction work continues using VisualLive’s Augmented Reality solutions HoloLive for HoloLens 2 and MobiLive for iOS / Android devices with live streaming platforms such as the Microsoft Teams from within the devices. 

These products have created the opportunity for VDC personnel and field staff to continue production from safe remote areas while continuing seamless coordination.

Using VisualLive’s ability to share and livestream the actual 3D BIM designs with personnel online allows teams to communicate in real-time with Microsoft Teams and AR devices in true scale 1:1  exactly as it would be installed on-location.  

This technology goes beyond simple video sharing, it allows the user and audience to share activity, annotations, and problem-solving tagging features through the mixed reality toolbar for issue capture, install validation and rework solutions.

What do you need?

Setup for remote live streaming your BIM is simple. Using either HoloLive for use with the Microsoft HoloLens 2 or MobiLive for use with iOS / Android mobile devices allows you to load the BIM using either our Navisworks or Revit plugins. Our plugins allow you to push the BIM into Augmented Reality where you have full control over scale and placement. Once your 3D design is in place, anyone using Microsoft Teams can connect to begin sharing two-way audio and video sharing capabilities in real-time from around the world.


Step 1: Load your BIM in Revit/Navisworks and Push your Model with VisualLive
Step 2: Load your model in the field and open teams
Step 3: Collaborate live as you walk through your project

To see it in action, we captured a live stream session while we were out on a current jobsite. In this video, we connected to Microsoft Teams directly through the HoloLens 2 running VisualLive HoloLive™. The install technician was able to share the BIM directly with the staff at the office in real-time to solve some alignment issues within the design.
