Sony and Siemens Partner on Immersive Engineering

Siemens and the Sony Corporation introduced a new design solution combining the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of industry software and Sony’s new XR head-mounted display (HMD), SRH-S1, designed using Siemens’ NX software. The SRH-S1 includes an XR head-mounted display featuring high-quality 4K OLED Microdisplays and controllers for intuitive interaction with 3D objects.

The results of the partnership are impressive. Sony succeeded in implementing NX in the fastest schedule in the world, improving design process productivity by 25%. The goal was to achieve further evolution with a product that brings innovations allowing direct editing in an immersive environment. Sony’s XR head-mounted display is fundamental to the forthcoming NX Immersive Designer, which combines Siemens’ NX software exclusively with Sony’s breakthrough XR technology to yield immersive design and collaborative product engineering capabilities. Siemens’ NX Immersive Designer is expected to launch by year-end 2024.

“At Sony, we are committed to creators. In every line of our business, we want to enable creators to create, and the SRH-S1 does just that. Our head-mounted display and dedicated controllers lets you create more intuitively in a fully immersive environment, allowing you to move freely between the virtual and real worlds — collaborating and creating with colleagues around the world in real time, – and it will enable more innovation,” explained Hirohito Kondo, Deputy General Manager, XR Business Development Division, Product Management Department of Sony.

“The tight integration of the hardware and software gives designers and engineers all new, incredibly natural ways to interact with the Digital Twin. And that interaction is the key. We’re not just viewing designs. This is about doing meaningful hands-on engineering. That is why the image quality is so important – as well as the precision of the controls and even the comfort of the headset – because together, it lets you collaborate more, engineer better, and innovate faster. It lets you do real, meaningful engineering — and without ever having to build a physical prototype.”
