Late last year saw the launch of a Steam Greenlight campaign for CINEVEO, a new virtual reality (VR) application from Mind Probe Labs that allows users to view video content within the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). The title has already been released via an official website but hopes to become more widely available by launching through Valve’s digital PC store. This week has seen CINEVEO pass that Greenlight campaign, with the developer promising a full launch on Steam in the near future.
CINEVEO allows users to sit in virtual cinemas and watch both 2D and 3D content on a gigantic screen, as if visiting a real theatre. The title supports AVI, MP4, MOV, WMV & MKV formats and even features an online mode so that users can share content with friends. Users can even utilise their webcams to get a glimpse into the real world while using a HMD. The software currently features six different cinema themes, including 60s Drive-In, 4D Movie Theater, Space Station, Ocean, Haunted Valley and The Void.
Those interested in CINEVEO can currently pick up the title for $10 USD via an official website. A specific release date for the Steam version of the title is yet to be revealed, nor if it will retain that same price point. Earlier in 2015 Mind Probe Labs also launched a similar application that allows users to browse the internet in VR, named CIBERVEO. VRFocus will continue to follow CINEVEO closely, reporting back with any further updates on the kit.
