Straightforward cross-platform distribution of immersive content
Sky’s in-house VR studio has announced it will be using the just-launched immersive content distribution system Jaunt XR Platform to deliver all its VR projects.
Jaunt XR software enables the straightforward cross-platform distribution of immersive content (VR, AR and MR), and Sky VR Studios will use it to deliver VR content to consumers via its Sky VR app.
“To deliver [our VR] experiences to customers, we need the right platforms and technology.”
Jaunt XR Platform provides the means to distribute immersive content across all platforms, including Facebook 360, YouTube 360, Twitter, native iOS and Android mobile apps, and all scaled VR, AR and MR headsets and platforms.
Sky is the first media company to use the Jaunt XR Platform for the distribution of VR content.
Gary Davey, managing director of content at Sky said: “To deliver [our VR] experiences to customers, we need the right platforms and technology. Jaunt XR Platform will let us take the next steps in our VR journey, helping ready the Sky VR app to handle the ever more innovative and complex VR experiences we will be creating.”
Dominic Collins, general manager, Jaunt International adds: “Sky is already producing fantastic immersive content, we wanted to give them the tools to distribute those experiences in a seamless way across their own channels. Sky, like many broadcasters, has a huge opportunity to pioneer the way in which immersive content enters and enriches the lives of consumers all over the world and we’re excited to power that vision.”
