InstaVR Clients Can Now Distribute Video of Unlimited Length Across Major Headsets
SAN FRANCISCO, CA
InstaVR, Inc., a virtual reality (VR) authoring, publishing, and analysis company, announced today the addition of streaming capabilities to its popular web-based platform. InstaVR Pro and Enterprise clients can stream 360-degree videos through applications built for iOS, Android, Gear VR, Daydream, Web, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive.
InstaVR enables users to quickly and easily author immersive VR apps without any coding required. The new streaming capabilities extend InstaVR’s platform to allow clients to share 360-degree videos of unlimited length with their intended audiences. Utilizing the service is as simple as selecting “Streaming” in the Console, which transcodes video into a stream-ready format for distribution across major headsets, utilizing the InstaVR Global Content Delivery Network.
The new streaming feature is beneficial across a broad array of industries serviced by InstaVR. For example, clients can publish a 20 minute training video, a 45 minute immersive drama, a 60 minute lecture, a 90 minute sporting event, or a 120 minute film – all of which can be accessed through a relatively small application packaged using InstaVR for most major VR headsets.
VR authors can distribute high-quality 4K (2160p) or 8K (4320p) video through the streaming platform. In addition to 360 media, 2D videos can also be streamed in the apps, allowing for a 2D cinema-like experience in VR space (similar to the Netflix VR app).
500 GB/month of VR streaming bandwidth is included with InstaVR Pro accounts. Additional bandwidth can be purchased depending on expected usage. Customers may also distribute via their own Content Delivery Network, if applicable.
“We’re very proud to announce the launch of our long-form video streaming service,” said Daniel Haga, Founder and CEO of InstaVR. “As our clients expand the length and quality of the 360 media they capture, we want to make sure to provide them with a platform to easily and reliably share their content. Our new long-form streaming service does just that.”
