Winnipeg-based remote expert collaboration provider Librestream Technologies Inc. has released a new dimensioning capability for its Onsight Smartcam and Onsight platform.

The Onsight Smartcam securely shares live audio, video, telestration and now dimensioning information with remote experts for rapid response in the field, Librestream said.

As a secure appliance, the Onsight Smartcam is already approved for the most security stringent environments and enables remote video inspections by attaching specialized test instruments using the multi-port adapter. The new dimensioning capability adds another augmented reality element to the Onsight collaboration experience.

When dimensioning is activated, the Onsight Smartcam uses its built-in laser to estimate and display measurement information. The measurement information can be shared with remote experts during a live Onsight session or stored for later review.

"Empowering workers to quickly resolve issues in rugged, remote environments is our focus. This dimensioning capability is another tool for teams to use in their analysis of complex assets, improving and accelerating decision-making," Kerry Thacher, Librestream founder and chief executive officer, said in a statement.
