Semcon has experienced increased demand for digital content and live interaction from its customers and has invested heavily in AR/VR development to be able to visualize information. The partnership entitles Semcon to market and promote XMReality Remote Guidance and for XMReality to distribute and visualize content from Semcon in XMReality Remote Guidance.
