Modus VR, a pioneer in advanced virtual reality software for technology integrators, designers, and architects, has introduced Modus-as-a-Service, which the company showed at its booth (W361) during InfoComm 2022 in Las Vegas.
Residential & commercial integrators, consultants, and enterprises seeking to harness the full functionality, speed, and power of the Modus VR planning and design software technology, can do it on a convenient per-project basis via MaaS, the company notes.
Without any hardware investment or resident expert, integrators and teams can enlist the Modus VR platform and the expert team to host meetings and provide turnkey, real-time, immersive design work and output all-important accompanying project deliverables, the company explains.
Modus VR client service specialists will join client meetings via most any video conference software such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams. The staff engage in complete VR design of the customer’s residential or commercial space to the satisfaction of all attendant stakeholders, responding to their creative ideas and collaboration, in Modus VR’s 3D environment, the company says.
Attendees experience the real-time ability to look at their entire space, make immediate, informed decisions, and arrive at the best design for their project, while the Modus VR team does all the work. Integrators, clients, and trade partners can focus on aspects of their project such as display sizes, speaker placement, and smart home functionality. For enterprise sessions, Modus VR can demonstrate things such as camera views, optimum screen sizes, seating, and furniture placement, microphone pickup, and more.
“The magic of our new Modus-as-a-Service offering lies in the ability for the integrator and their customers to focus on their creativity, idea sharing, and solving problems, while we do the design work alongside them in our 3D environment,” says Ken Brueck, co-founder of Modus VR.
“This new option means integrators don’t have to invest in VR hardware to gain all the benefits and wow-factor that Modus VR is known for. They can set up hosted meetings with our experts whenever it works for them and be productive immediately.”
Within minutes after the meeting, Modus VR can provide all project deliverables such as the Modus 360 URL (with a full, 360-degree view of the designed space), Modus Docs, and the space or room design file, plus 3D renders from any angle in the space.
“Gone are days of endless meetings, outdated paper plans, and waiting weeks to complete residential and commercial layout designs,” Brueck adds.
Integrators are ideally suited to help bring intelligent power solutions to the home. Learn about smart electrical breaker panels that can dynamically manage loads to prioritize critical circuits, balance alternative energy sources, and reduce homeowners’ electric bills.

“We’re finding project stakeholders can reach alignment during a single, immersive MaaS session, replacing what otherwise would have required weeks of back and forth to complete.”
