Freedom 360 the company behind the Freedom360 GoPro mount, has purchased Koncept VR to form a full-service production agency for virtual reality (VR) and 360-degree video.
With this acquisition Freedom 360 are bringing into the fold Koncept VR’s expertise in professional grade 360° video content production as well as VR development for head-mounted displays (HMD). Koncept VR has over 4 years of expertise in bringing panoramic video projection and 360° video hardware to immersive cinema, enabling delivery of quality content in the 360° video category from its team of cinematographers, produces, sound engineers, and VR developers.
With the two companies combining their talents and knowledge of 360° video and VR, HMD’s like the Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR or Google Cardboard will have access to more and more content for users to view and enjoy experiences that only VR can provide.
Consumers need for professionally produced 360 video will feed the surging demand for a superior VR experience. Freedom360 and its Koncept VR subsidiary are now poised to welcome the “What if” wishes of creative agencies and will explore how to turn today’s challenges into tomorrow’s goals.
VRFocus will be watching what this new venture will produce in the coming months as consumers await the arrival of the first HMD’s to hit the shop shelves.
