Verizon to power Gravity Point’s VR hub

May 9, 2017

Verizon Digital Media Services today announced that it has been selected by Gravity Point TV, a specialist in the worldwide virtual reality (VR) services space, is to exclusively power the all-new VR viewing hub, Gravity Point VR. Already a user of Verizon’s Uplynk Video Streaming service, Gravity Point TV will now also utilise the Edgecast CDN to ensure that Gravity Point VR content creators, publishers and providers — in sectors from video entertainment and gaming to retail and distance learning — can distribute quality content at scale and ensure a seamless viewer experience.

“We decided to expand our relationship and exclusively work with Verizon Digital Media Services because of its track record of excellent performance, innovative technology stack and unrelenting demonstration of remarkable customer service,” said Scott Cardoza, Gravity Point founder and CEO. “After experiencing the simplicity and flexibility of Uplynk, we were confident that the Edgecast CDN would provide us with the critical foundation and reliability to deliver optimal VR experiences and provide Gravity Point VR publishers with the necessary performance to attract and retain viewers.”
