EchoAR Competitor Analysis-Part 1
VuFrame and Augmara are true competitors of EchoAR as they can all be used to create and share augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and three-dimensional (3D) content. They all have cross-platform support but only EchoAR provides a content delivery network or location-based support.
- EchoAR is a cloud-based platform that enables software developers and companies to create and deploy AR, VR, and 3D content and apps.
- Vuframe is a platform that allows anyone to create and share a combined AR, VR, and 3D view and content for their products.
- Augmara provides a platform where users can create and manage AR, VR, and 3D content.
- VuFrame and Augmara are true competitors of EchoAR because all three companies provide services where companies or individuals without any knowledge of software programming or development can create and share AR, VR, and 3D content.
- EchoAR has a cross-platform application programming interface (API) where published AR content can be retrieved using their content management system (CMS). It supports different AR software development kits (SDKs) including "ARCore, ARKit, Vuforia, Wikitude, WebXR, AR.js, Unity-based SDKs, and MagicLeap".
- VuFrame has cross-platform support. It supports other platforms like ARKit and ARCore.
- Augmara has cross-platform support because the Augmara SDK is integrated with the Wikitude SDK which provides cross-platform support.
Content Delivery Network or Location-Based Support
- EchoAR has a content delivery network (CDN).
- VuFrame and Augmara do not provide any content delivery network or location-based support.
To determine whether VuFrame and Augmara provide any content delivery network or location-based support, we started by searching through their websites and social media accounts for relevant information. This did not yield any relevant results as the two companies did not provide any information about having a content delivery network or providing location-based support.
Next, we looked for reviews provided by third-party industry sites like GitHub, Daily Dealflow, AppAgg, and Wikitude. However, we only found details of the services and features of VuFrame and Augmara.
We then looked for interviews granted by executives of the companies. We hoped that the executives would reveal information about whether they have a content delivery network or if they provide location-based support. While we found an interview featuring the founder of VuFrame, there was no discussion about having a content delivery network or location-based support. We could not find any interview granted by Augmara executives.
Since there is no information that suggests that they provide any content delivery network or location-based support, we have therefore determined that VuFrame and Augmara do not provide any content delivery network or location-based support. EchoAR stated clearly on their homepage that they have a content delivery network. We expected that any other similar platform would also make such important information readily available and accessible.
