Hollywood director and producer Roland Emmerich (Independence Day and Godzilla) and entrepreneur/ producer Marco Weber have announced the launch of a new virtual reality (VR) company called VRenetic.
Specialising in accessible, social-media enabled 360-degree streaming, VRenetic’s first product VResh is a free broadcasting and viewing application created on the company’s on the brand new VRenetic Media Engine.
VRenetic aims to make VR adoption cheap and easily accessible, so when VResh launches later this year the platform will allow users to stream publicly, in private groups, or one to one, with synchronous two-way audio that’s compatible with 360-degree cameras, as well as VRenetic brand headsets, for both iOS and Android devices.
“Sure, the hardware for professional 360-degree content streaming already exists, but it’s totally inaccessible to young, cost-conscious users,” said Emmerich, chairman and co-founder of VRenetic in a statement. “The VResh platform unlocks all of that, and more. Users will have 4K 360-degree VR streaming capabilities paired with real-time two-way audio, which does wonders to socialize and personalize what has thus far been a solitary, tethered-to-a-computer kind of experience.”
Not only will VRenetic’s platform include in-house developed apps to power an array of social and immersive content experiences, other apps will be able to tap into VRenetic’s infrastructure in the future.
“The VResh solution creates a new form of virtual reality for the imaginative consumer. It offers an experience that is user friendly while being incredibly immersive, social, and fun, and we feel that VResh has the potential to be used as frequently as traditional social media platforms,” added Weber, CEO and co-founder of VRenetic.
