NextVR looks to bring a more realistic live event experience to VR with announcements heading into CES 2018
Ahead of CES 2018 live sporting event broadcasting specialists NextVR announced three big tech advancements to their platform: six degrees of freedom-enabled content, higher resolution output, and augmented reality support. For sports fans six degrees of freedom, or “6DoF” will make NextVR events much more like a live sporting event with the ability to move forward, backward, left, right, up, and down.
“VR is the most demanding visual medium ever created and we’re just beginning to deliver on its potential to convincingly create experiences that mimic reality. The ability to move naturally inside the experience and the increased ability to see detail add a critical level of presence and realism.”-David Cole, NextVR Co-Founder and CEO.
NextVR also plans to support AR devices in mid-2018 with plans to develop content to “transport NextVR experiences directly into the viewer’s physical world.
