Librestream and Samsung Collaborate to Deliver an Augmented Reality Solution for Improved Worker Communications and Safety




Reading Time: 3 minutes

WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Dec. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, Librestream Technologies Inc. and Samsung Electronics America and announced a joint augmented reality (AR) solution designed for industrial workers in manufacturing, transportation and public safety markets. The solution integrates Librestream’s Onsight Augmented Reality Enterprise platform with Samsung’s latest ruggedized tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active Pro, to deliver a solution that will help improve the safety, efficiency, and productivity of industrial workers around the world.

The Librestream AR platform includes remote expert assistance, digital work instructions and content management—as well as its Onsight Cube wearable thermal camera for asset analysis. By combining this platform with Samsung’s Tab Active Pro—a purpose-built, military-grade certified tablet built for workers in harsh environments—teams can stay well-connected and workers can gain fast assistance in rough locations, whether working indoors or out in the field.

The solution is designed for workers in industries such as manufacturing, transportation and public safety. For example, a worker in a manufacturing facility can use the solution to accelerate an equipment inspection. Using digital work instructions, the worker steps through a consistent procedure and accesses remote experts via video to help diagnose unforeseen problems rapidly.

“For workers in the field, factory floor or other tough locations, their work environments demand rugged hardware that can endure and perform in those situations,” said Charlie Neagoy, VP, Business Development at Librestream. “They also require AR software that can perform in the equally challenging network conditions. The Galaxy Tab Active Pro with the Onsight AR platform ensures that workers are safer, faster, and more efficient.”

The Galaxy Tab Active Pro and its family are certified Onsight Optimized™ products. This level of certification involves extensive and ongoing hardware and software testing as well as tailored capabilities to maximize performance. Initial customers and use cases include remote expert support and training for industrial manufacturing and field service organizations.

“Today’s industrial businesses require mobile solutions that not only increase productivity, but also stand up to the rougher elements of industrial workplaces,” said Taher Behbehani, Head of B2B Mobile, Samsung Electronics America. “Samsung is proud to collaborate with Librestream to deliver a ruggedized enterprise tablet that uses AR technology to improve efficiencies, while ensuring seamless operation in tough environments.”  

The Tab Active Pro is the latest addition to the Samsung family of smartphones and tablets designed for rugged environments; the same environments the Onsight AR Platform is optimized for.

No. 12/2019 – Upgrade of the expectation for 2019

Nikolaj Plads 6

Copenhagen, 12 December 2019


The original expectation was DKK 3-4 million for EBIT and a small positive net result before taking into account the valuation of the investment property.

Due to higher revenues and lower than expected costs, the company’s management expects that EBIT for 2019 will reach the level of around DKK 6 million and the net result before taking into account the valuation of the investment property of around DKK 3.5 million.


The largest tenant terminated the contract and left at the end of November 2019. Currently, the process of reletting of space which became vacant is in progress. The first contract has already been signed.

Part of the space will remain temporarily empty next year, which will cause the expected EBIT to drop to around DKK 1 million.
