What do you need to start with augmented reality?
Two simple and interconnected applications for a powerful Augmented Reality solution.
The Spectral augmented reality solution enables you to digitalise your procedures on a web platform (Spectral Studio) in a simple way and to view them (Spectral View) through an augmented reality headset. You are now supported by a real assistant that guides you visually step by step, in the performance of your tasks whilst you work hands free. To use the Spectral augmented reality solution in your production, maintenance and training processes, you need two things:
- A Spectral licence (Studio + View)
- An augmented reality headset (Microsoft HoloLens 2)

What is the digitalisation of operating modes and processes?
The digitalisation of operating modes involves creating instructions or processes on a digital support, linked to production, maintenance or quality operations. Paper supports disappear and all content is now created, modified or viewed online. This is what the SPECTRAL industrial augmented reality solution proposes.
What should I do if I don't have operating modes?
With the Spectral application, any operator, technician, team manager or expert can create an operating mode online, very easily, simply based on their knowledge of a subject. They just need to separate their process into tasks and steps and to write it on the Spectral Studio platform. Everything is recorded in real time. Our support packs are available to those who prefer to be guided throughout the deployment of our solution in their industry.
Can I import/export my operating modes?
The Spectral Studio application doesn’t allow operating modes to be imported and digitalised automatically yet. Therefore, there is a manual process to be performed: rewriting the tasks of an operating mode on the platform. Fortunately, the simplicity of the tool makes the procedure very easy and, by copying and pasting, the task is completed in a few minutes.
The Spectral Studio application makes it possible to export the operating modes entered on the platform in Excel. Accessible from any operating mode with a simple click.
Do you supply the augmented reality headsets?
Spectral does not supply Microsoft HoloLens 2 augmented reality headsets. However, we can direct you to trusted retailers, approved by Spectral and its customers.
How much does an augmented reality headset cost?
A Microsoft HoloLens 2 augmented reality headset costs around €3,200 excluding tax.
How much does the Spectral augmented reality solution cost?
The Spectral solution is available from €400 excluding tax per month or €4,000 excluding tax per year in its Starter version. We also offer support packs on top.
Do I need an Internet connection to use my Spectral augmented reality solution?
You will need an Internet connection to access the Spectral Studio platform and create your operating modes online. A single Internet connection is needed with your headset to synchronise the Studio and View data. Once this step is complete, you will be able to use the Spectral View application on your augmented reality headset online or offline, as you wish.
Can I connect to my CMMS?
Developed and designed to integrate in every customer environment, Spectral connects and interfaces with all your internal tools on request: CMMS, Ticketing, IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things), etc.
Can I use Spectral Studio without Spectral View and vice-versa?
The two tools Spectral Studio and Spectral View are inseparable at present. Although their respective uses are entirely independent, Spectral Studio is the content creation platform and Spectral View is the “consumer” content platform. So, you cannot create operating modes directly in Spectral View and vice-versa, Spectral Studio does not allow you to consume content, just to create it.
