Jaunt Inc., a virtual reality company known for producing and distributing immersive content, is placing the power of distribution in its partner’s hands with Jaunt XR. The new platform is a white label distribution solution available to media companies, brands, content aggregators and enterprise customers enabling them to deliver immersive content directly to audiences through their owned and operated channels.
The XR Platform allows customers to simultaneously publish immersive content across all 360 social platforms including Facebook 360, YouTube 360 and Twitter, native iOS and Android mobile apps, and all VR platforms and headsets. The new Jaunt XR Platform also includes an end-to-end Media Manager purpose build for immersive content, a publishing solution that supports 28 languages, and an Intelligence Suite that provides data and analytics specific to immersive content.
“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,” said Jaunt CEO George Kliavkoff. “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.”
Medical Realities, the company behind the world’s first live 360° operation on a cancer patient at the Royal London Hospital, has already adopted Jaunt’s technology in the reinvention of its groundbreaking surgical training app.
“The evolution of the Medical Realities app has been an important part of the overall expansion of our brand,” said Steve Dann Medical Realities CEO. “Working with Jaunt has allowed us to enhance our customer experience and expand our distribution across platforms. We are very excited about the opportunities before us.”
Additionally, vTime, the world’s sociable network in VR, is also working with Jaunt’s XR Platform to develop co-watching experiences within immersive video.
“In Jaunt, with their immersive technology, we’ve found the perfect partner to help us towards our vision of delivering the very best sociable experiences,” added Clemens Wangerin, Managing Director at vTime.
The Jaunt XR Platform is available now and will be one of the immersive technology company’s showcase pieces at CES 2018.
