Embraer North America has selected Canon's MREAL System for Mixed Reality to manage next-generation aircraft production activities. By utilizing this particular Canon solution, the engineers at Embraer will have the ability to explore aircraft designs in both 3D and real size scales. In addition, the Embraer team will also be able to examine, alter, manipulate, analyze, and present aviation designs so that intricate concepts can be promptly converted into reality. Canon’s MREAL System for Mixed Reality will be able to bring together real life visual information along with providing the type of flexibility offered by computer generated images.

Since 2000, Embraer has been using virtual reality in Brazil for digital prototype creation and design evaluation. The company’s engineers in the US will be able to utilize the interactive, immersive and flexible Canon MREAL System for Mixed Reality as the system is planned to be installed at Embraer's new engineering and technology center in Melbourne, Florida, US. Funded by a $24m investment from Space Florida, the facility will allow Embraer to transform its work, manufacture, engineer and future aircraft designs.

Canon USA Business Imaging Solutions Senior Vice President and General Manager Junichi Yoshitake said:

"We are incredibly honored and excited to join Embraer in establishing the future of mixed reality technology, demonstrating the ways in which engineering and design can be achieved.
