XR Live Streaming Platform VRJAM Unveils Beta Technology
As part of London Tech Week, the Createch 2019 conference is being hosted by the Creative Industries Council to celebrate both the creative and technology sectors. For the conference, VRJAM has unveiled its beta live streaming technology for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) on mobile devices.
Designed as a real-time, performance platform for content creators to create and share live, interactive shows for fans across the world, VRJAM’s technology was developed in consultation with Google.
The system works by supplying real-time motion capture, video streaming and audio streaming to provide a life-like simulation. This all takes place inside dynamic VR environments which can be changed to suit the content, from a club atmosphere where you can jump in the booth with the DJ to something a little more unusual.
“We’ve developed a technology which is set to be a game-changer for the way XR content can be shared. Our cutting-edge platform provides an unrivalled, immersive way for content to be enjoyed which is simply breathtaking,” said Sam Speaight, CEO and Founder of VRJAM, in a statement. “By using innovative fast 5G streaming technology, global audiences will be able to tune in to their favourite artist or event, to experience it like never before, digitally reimagined. We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve created and we’re sure this will disrupt the industry.”
Fans and artists can co-exist as avatars in the same space, interacting with each other as a social experience. While music will be a core part of the VRJAM platform, the solution is designed for any event such as sports events, live events, through to business events, conferences and much more. To demonstrate this, three hours of the speaker itinerary for the Createch 2019 conference will be live streamed via VRJAM’s platform for users to tune into.
Developed over two years, users can either log into VRJAM using a VR headset or an Android smartphone, downloading the app which will be available from Google Play Store. Headsets confirmed include Google Daydream, Oculus Rift, Oculus Go, Samsung Gear VR and HTC Vive. As VRJAM continues to be developed VRFocus will keep you updated with the latest announcements.
