MediaKind supports Apple Vision Pro with Engage

April 4, 2024

MediaKind, a specialist in media technology services and solutions, has announced its support for Vision Pro, Apple’s spatial computing product that blends digital video content with users’ physical space. By leveraging MediaKind’s video streaming solution, Engage, Apple can deliver interactive video with pristine picture quality to all Vision Pro users, transforming their physical space into a uniquely personalised viewing experience.

At NAB Show 2024, visitors to MediaKind’s booth can experience first-hand demonstrations of how the Engage solution is keeping pace with the world of sports and entertainment and delivering new capabilities, including powering one of the first immersive live sports apps running on Apple’s new headset.

Engage provides a comprehensive solution for independent content owners, sports leagues, and broadcasters looking to distribute live video in the most convenient way possible. Built on MediaKind’s advanced streaming, advertising, and content entitlement technology, Engage offers a software development kit (SDK) for Apple Vision Pro, allowing developers to create a whole new range of interactive video applications for sports fans and technology enthusiasts alike. With this Vision Pro extension, viewers can watch multiple games simultaneously from a variety of camera angles, access player statistics in real-time, and create an entirely personalized experience with immersive, stunning video.

“The most important aspect of any video solution is the video experience itself,” said Boris Felts, Chief Product Officer at MediaKind. “Audiences deserve picture-perfect quality without interruption. Through our Engage solution, we’ve been able to foster that exceptional viewing experience for users of Apple Vision Pro. Since its release, Vision Pro users of Engaged-enabled applications have responded with overwhelmingly positive feedback, and that serves as a testimony to what great technology and content can achieve.”
