Pixvana SPIN Studio introduces VR Casting

Pixvana, a company that powers the future of XR storytelling and immersive media, has announced the release of Virtual Reality (VR) Casting to its SPIN Studio platform, the company said.

VR Casting is a first-of-its-kind solution that lets customers easily manage and distribute VR videos from SPIN Studio to targeted VR headsets. A streamlined process lets customers share their immersive experiences with a simple “pair-and-share” feature that securely delivers the highest quality content to any audience, anywhere, at any time.

Previously, VR video creators have only been able to distribute content by developing their own apps for sharing, a time intensive and often tedious journey. With the launch of SPIN Studio´s VR Casting comes a new, free app: SPIN Play. SPIN Play makes it easy to send content directly to VR headsets with one-click device pairing, and is available across VR networks including Steam, Google Play and the Oculus Store. Now, customers can rely on a single app to share all VR video content to targeted devices with high quality streaming, or via optional direct download for local playback.

Pixvana is a Seattle-based SaaS startup that powers the future of XR storytelling and immersive media. SPIN Studio from Pixvana is the first integrated platform that transforms the way customers create, edit and show VR video experiences across any device, anywhere. The company is venture-backed by Vulcan Capital, Madrona Venture Group, Microsoft, Cisco, Raine and Hearst Ventures. Pixvana´s founders have proven startup success in media technology, and hail from senior product and engineering leadership roles at Apple, Adobe, Microsoft, and Lucasfilm.
