“In 2016 we saw significant advances in devices for virtual reality experiences,” said Amit Chopra, Executive Director and CEO of North America, Digital Domain. “From mobile phones to room-scale VR systems, there are more ways than ever to explore virtual reality. However, there’s now a tremendous demand for new and engaging VR content for the audiences using those devices. At Digital Domain, we’re leveraging our visual effects artistry and technology to produce VR storytelling experiences that inspire audiences. Our new app is our platform for sharing our livestreamed and curated VR experiences with the world.”

Digital Domain’s app is freely available for Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream, and for iOS and Android smartphones using Google Cardboard.

Back in March Digital Domain announced the purchase of Sprawly, a company that specialises in helping those with no coding experience build VR content.
