Lenovo Partners With SOTI and Starlight Children’s Foundation to Launch a True EMM Solution on Mirage Solo Virtual Reality Headset

Starlight Xperience featuring Mirage Solo will transport kids from the hospital to destinations known and unknown, allowing them to explore the world through virtual reality

SOTI, the world’s most trusted provider of mobile and†IoT device†management solutions, announced that it has partnered with Lenovo as the first enterprise mobility management (EMM) technology leader to manage the innovative Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream virtual reality (VR) headset.

In the world’s first implementation of this joint venture, SOTI and Lenovo have teamed up together to work with the Starlight Children’s Foundation, an organization dedicated to creating moments of joy and happiness for hospitalized children, to provide and manage VR devices for use in pediatric healthcare settings. “Starlight Xperience” runs on the Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream, Google’s VR platform, and is a ground-breaking program designed to entertain, educate and inspire hospitalized kids across the US through stimulating immersive experiences that transport children from the hospital to any place in the world – or beyond – through the magic of virtual reality. Delivered to Starlight’s network of 800+ pediatric partners through its 360-degree program distribution platform, Starlight Xperience offers equipment and content geared toward entertainment and distraction for kids and will become the go-to AR/VR solution for pediatric care providers.

“We are very excited to work with Lenovo and the Starlight Project,” said†Larry Klimczyk, vice president, Strategic Alliances at SOTI. “Our latest integration with the Lenovo Mirage Solo will bring countless innovations to the healthcare and education sectors.” SOTI was the first EMM solution to introduce management of smart glasses and smart watches. With the recent addition of Linux support, SOTI continues to be on the leading edge by enabling management of the world’s next generation of innovative devices.

“By partnering with SOTI, Lenovo can combine VR technology with SOTI solutions, ensuring our device is securely managed and successfully implemented. We look forward to expanding the use of VR and delighting both consumers and the enterprise alike,” said†Gunjan Shah, general manager for North America Smart Devices at Lenovo.

Lenovo’s Mirage Solo is the world’s first stand-alone Daydream VR headset. Powered by Google’s WorldSense technology, which allows applications to track a user’s movement in space without the need of external sensors, Mirage Solo gives users the ability to explore endless possibilities. SOTI’s solution will bring advanced management capabilities to enhance Mirage Solo’s deployment in education and commercial space.
