Black Marble announced as HoloLens Readiness Partner
13 Mar 2017
Microsoft has today announced Black Marble has been awarded official HoloLens Agency Readiness Partner status - one of the few delivery partners based in the UK, and the only multi-Gold Competency-holding partner to be recognised. Update: the programme was renamed the Mixed Reality Partner Programme in July 2017.
As an Agency partner, we are recognised for our HoloLens development expertise and growing dedicated teams that can take on holographic application development for clients. We are drawing on our years of experience developing for the Microsoft platform, with 5 Microsoft Gold Competencies and 6 Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals.
Black Marble focuses on cloud-connected, next-generation user experiences, from wearables to Holograms, and has worked with police forces to produce holographic, virtual, mobile command and control centres in order to improve and enhance incident command, and to capture crime scenes to increase the integrity of evidence and allow future visits by other members of the justice system using HoloLens.
Black Marble has been extending our award-winning policing application for use via HoloLens, and Superintendent Nick Lyall of Bedfordshire Police said:
“As a public order and firearms commander I can say that without doubt the use of HoloLens, through tuServ will revolutionize policing for years to come. As a detective I can also say that its ability to scan crime scenes and create a mapped 3d version will allow for a reduction in cross contamination issues and allow for investigators to visualise in real time the scenes of major crime.
The vision and innovation of BM is ground-breaking and I look forward to taking this forward of behalf of UK policing and policing worldwide.”
