VRJAM, the real-time, performance platform for live virtual and augmented reality on mobile devices, has announced a partnership with voice, video and live interactive streaming platform Agora, to launch a VR event technology platform which will be unveiled at the IBC Conference in Amsterdam later this year.
“VRJAM:X powered by Agora”, has been designed to provide solutions to business event producers to create real time XR simulations of business conferences, training sessions and other business events that aim to reach large global audiences.
Delegates in attendance at the IBC Conference will have a first look of the ground breaking technology as VRJAM and Agora unveil it at the show this September in Amsterdam.
The new platform is an adaptation of VRJAM’s existing core 3D graphics technology, combined with the powerful real time audio and video streaming capability developed by Agora. The joint platform provides an immersive solution that merges live interactive video, real time 3D graphics, 3D motion capture and live audio to deliver real time experiences on mobile devices.
VRJAM:X powered by Agora is designed for businesses and attendees alike. Event organisers and speakers will gain access to larger audiences allowing them to communicate in a more personal way compared to alternatives such as video calling. Event attendees willgain access to a wider variety of information, with the possibility of being present at several locations almost simultaneously and evading any extra time and travel related costs.
Sam Speaight, CEO and Founder of VRJAM, commented: “We’re thrilled to reveal our partnership with such a well respected and like-minded partner. Agora and VRJAM are on similar missions to change the way the world communicates and I believe this is the first step into a fruitful and long-lasting relationship. With VRJAM:X powered by Agora, businesses and potential attendees can now connect, learn and interact in unimagined ways.”
Reggie Yativ, COO/CRO at Agora, added: “Today’s audiences crave immersive experiences that let them take part in the action live, even if they’re not physically at an event. VRJAM is bringing the fun and excitement of real-time VR and AR experiences to people everywhere, so we couldn’t be more excited to partner with and power such a unique and innovative platform.”
The collaborative technology has already attracted attention from the International Association for Broadcast Media as the next stage in the development of broadcast technology. An early beta version of VRJAM:X was first revealed to the world at the UK Government’s annual innovation conference, Createch.
