Co-watching experiences powered by the Jaunt XR platform are coming to vTime in Q1, 2018.
(12th December 2017, Liverpool, UK) vTime, the world’s leading sociable network, is partnering with Jaunt, the global partner of choice for producing and distributing immersive content, to allow users to socialize within Jaunt’s extensive 360 media library for the first time powered by Jaunt XR – the white label distribution platform for immersive VR, AR and MR content.
vTime joins VR surgical training platform Medical Realities as one of two partners chosen by Jaunt to first integrate the state-of-the-art technology, and announce the XR platform. From Q1 2018, vTime users will be able to seamlessly meet and chat within some of the world’s best 360 content with friends, family and others, from wherever they are in the world.
The Jaunt XR platform is the white label distribution solution available to media companies, brands, content aggregators and enterprise customers enabling them to deliver immersive virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality content directly to audiences through their owned and operated channels.
Clemens Wangerin, Managing Director at vTime said; “We are proud to work with Jaunt on delivering the first and best multi-user viewing experience of their excellent content in vTime. We are delighted to be partnering with one of the leading names in the business to continue delivering our long-term vision of enabling the best way for people to engage, communicate and enjoy content together.”
Jaunt CEO George Kliavkoff said; “The next generation of digital media is immersive and media companies and brands are embracing this evolution. The challenge for these companies to meet the demand of the market has been in the ability to distribute in their own channels. Jaunt has deep experience with immersive media and we are unique in being a cross-platform provider that has perfected the creation and distribution of immersive content. Now we’ve decided to bring these tools to market to help our partners with scalable immersive solutions.”
The Jaunt XR Platform is available now and will be one of the immersive technology company’s showcase pieces at CES 2018. For more details on the Jaunt XR Platform and its capabilities, visit www.jauntvr.com/xrp.
