This chapter explores the concept of Digital Reality by reviewing its fundamentals including its history, technological components, and current trends. It discusses the broader components of a Digital Reality project and goes beyond the technological components by including business factors and related considerations. The chapter also identifies and discusses common challenges, examples of practical solutions and presents a generalized framework for how to approach Digital Reality projects. This includes how to manage the project, a summary of good practices, and key recommendations. Multiple examples are presented with use cases drawn from different disciplines. The chapter concludes with a summary of IEEE’s Digital Reality Exchange and the role it can play in Digital Reality projects.
