Focal Point VR showcases VR video live-streaming ‘from anywhere’ at IBC2018

Focal Point VR will attend IBC in Amsterdam to show its professional broadcast quality virtual reality (VR) 360° live-streaming platform now capable of being deployed anywhere in the field.

 

Focal Point VR has developed an ultra-high quality & high resolution 360 and VR live streaming platform capable of delivering video streams up to 8K. However until now high bandwidth 4K+ VR streams required a fixed line broadband connection to deliver from the source. In partnership with Livewire Digital, Focal Point VR will demonstrate an end to end, go-anywhere solution pairing our Camera and Stream Processor with Livewires’s RazorLink® Smart Networking technology.

 

Come and visit us on the Great Britain and Northern Ireland Pavilion in Hall 5, Stand B48c at the RAI – Amsterdam, Netherlands 14th – 18th September 2018.

 

Commenting on the partnership with Focal Point VR, Tristan Wood, Managing Director, Livewire Digital, said: “Immersive video is an exciting and growing market which requires the fast, reliable communications that RazorLink Smart Networking can deliver.”

 

Jonathan Newth, Focal Point VR’s CEO, said: “The ability of VR Video to ‘teleport’ the viewer to another place live represents an entirely new paradigm for video. We are really excited to be working with Livewire Digital to enable live VR video streams from virtually anywhere.”
