A great VR experience immerses the viewer in the virtual environment, creating a perception of being physically present in the virtual world. When experienced through a VR headset this can produce a visceral feeling of really ‘being there’ known as Presence.
We have a world class R&D team working on some of the biggest challenges associated with delivering Presence in a VR livestream using today’s and tomorrow’s hardware.
Data Problem – we have technology which dramatically reduces the data footprint of livestream and offline VR video, significantly reducing download times and bandwidth requirements.
True Stereo – we are developing technology to deliver true stereo VR video, an essential component of creating a complete feeling of presence.
Social Immersion – Making VR a shared and social experience is key to its lasting appeal, leveraging our games industry experience we are designing and building the components required to allow people to feel they are together in VR.
