The new features are designed to build on the company’s successful formal debut at CEDIA 2018.

Modus VR are developers of what the company says is the world’s first virtual reality design software solution for residential systems integrators. Recently announced are a series of upgrades to its platform which follows the company’s successful debut at CEDIA 2018 where it won a CEDIA Best in Show Award from Residential Systems.

 “The residential custom installation industry got the opportunity at CEDIA 2018 to completely experience what Modus VR can do for them,” explains company co-founder Ken Brueck. “And the reaction from everyone was an overwhelming ‘Wow!’ We left San Diego with a number of new manufacturers and systems integrators committing to the platform.”

Modus VR is described as a unique sales tool for AV professionals that helps salespeople close deals faster and upsell naturally. Leveraging the latest in VR technology, Modus lets clients experience their theater and media rooms before construction begins.

Everything in Modus VR can be changed on the fly, allowing a salesperson to demonstrate the value of different screen sizes, seating configurations for example, all of which can happen in real time.

With Modus VR, every client space can be recreated to scale within minutes, accelerating the design of the media room of the client’s dreams.

The solution factors in room size and shape including the unique angles of the space, as well as window and door placement to make the space true to reality. Users can even customise select style elements, from room colour to wall-placed artwork.

“Sight lines, viewing angles and standing waves are all easily depicted within the software,” Ken says.  “And the best part of all is that the final design can be directly exported to CAD, eliminating the busy work of traditional blueprints.”

According to, Ken the new updates introduced include the ability to quickly and easily create non-rectangular rooms using the 2D Floor Plan Editor that also enables users to zoom, change ceiling height, and, when ready, open in VR. 

The update also empowers integrators to use Modus VR with more clients and spend even less time building rooms and more time selling.

 Also new in the software update are four new projectors from Sony, a Foosball table, Ping Pong table and a club chair that enable users to expand beyond dedicated theater environments to media rooms and non-rectangular spaces. In addition, seats now move up and down as the riser height changes.

 “Modus VR sets the standard for excellence in room design software using advanced VR technology,” Ken promises. “We will continue to maintain this standard by incorporating ongoing software updates that enhance the creativity, flexibility and sales productivity of the platform for our customers. Our goal is to enable our customers to sell more AV solutions, faster and more profitably than ever before.”
