Jaunt expands XR Platform
August 31, 2018
Jaunt, a specialist in producing and distributing immersive XR content, has announced new research and development initiatives that support its growing Jaunt XR Platform, a B2B solution that enables partners to distribute augmented, virtual, and mixed reality content through their own applications and channels.
Jaunt’s latest technology offers volumetric content as another medium for its partners to tell stories and create IP. Volumetric capture makes it possible to film a subject from a 360-degree perspective, then output an avatar that matches the subject’s appearance, movements, and vocals in the form of a shareable, to-scale augmented reality asset. Jaunt’s proprietary approach utilises a simple capture stage with a streamlined setup, and leverages the same streaming technology Jaunt developed for delivering high-quality VR and AR experiences.
“At Jaunt, we’re always thinking about expanding the boundaries of storytelling by exploring the full immersive content spectrum; from virtual reality, to augmented & mixed reality, volumetric, and even new formats that our advanced development teams are working on,” said Arthur van Hoff, Jaunt CTO & Founder. “But our primary focus is empowering our partners to harness these evolving technologies, using the Jaunt XR Platform as the foundation for delivering their cutting-edge immersive content. Our ongoing research and development will serve as a cornerstone of the XR Platform’s evolution, and our volumetric capabilities are only the first step in this initiative.”
