Microsoft opens New Mixed Reality Capture Studio & Academy in San Francisco

To make sure everyone gets the experience of Mixed Reality, Microsoft has started opening up Mixed Reality Capture Studio starting in San Francisco. The idea is that anybody can use it to create, and experience right from a simple hologram to an immersive VR. The idea is to let everybody get an opportunity to see how it fits into their business.

Microsoft says:

To help fuel this opportunity, we are expanding our investment in technologies that enable the broader ecosystem to create for mixed reality worldwide. Our goal is to reach and support partners, creative agencies, studios, application developers, and others to help them create the most immersive mixed reality content possible.

Apart from this, Microsoft is also opening Academy for Mixed Reality which will help developers get on board with courses. Here is what the academy will offer:

  • Discovery Program: Where you begin your journey. Introduction to building mixed reality experiences, and how to further engage with the Mixed Reality Academy.
  • Expert Program: A multi-week course that kick-starts the ability for partners to join our Mixed Reality Partner Program (MRPP). Find out more about the MRPP here.
  • Workshops: Tailored courses where developers can learn and get expert advice from our team on topics such as adding spectator view to their app, improving performance, adding shared experience, or supporting the latest hardware.
  • Hackathons: We look forward to offering a robust calendar of hacking and sporting events.
