Voke, the Raising Name in Live VR
Voke (Silicon Valley, CA,USA) is making headlines this week since the company has raised $12.5 million in venture capital. The company was founded by husband-and-wifeSankar and Uma Jayaram. And before that, they managed to found the Virtual Reality and Computer Integrated Manufacturing Lab at Washington State University. Now they are partneering with NFL big teams and decided to create VOKE, a platform that would let fans experience live events in virtual reality from home.
The Voke platform captures and process 18K and higher resolution surround videos in real time, then lets you navigate freely in super high definition video using mobile devices and VR headsets.
VOKE’s non-fish-eye, true stereoscopic platform is unique in that it captures and streams both a live 1800-3600 2D immersive feed for mobile, tablets, and broadcast, as well as a live VR stream consumable on every VR platform. VOKE’s proprietary solution enables fans to easily switch between multiple time-synced vantage points at live events for the best seat in the house. Add in both shareable social media and instant replay capabilities and the VOKE platform becomes the most versatile and usable VR solution available for real-time, live-event action on the market.
The forerunner to VOKE was 3D-4U, a company built on deep technical expertise in interactive VR. 3D-4U generated numerous key breakthroughs in creating real-time, immersive, live VR media, which resulted in the development of VOKE’s VR platform.
The Voke app is available on IoS, Android, and Windows. Video demos are available here.
VOKE, Inc.’s comprehensive virtual reality product portfolio and innovative end-to-end media platform is quickly establishing VOKE as a world leader in providing new media immersive fan experiences for sports, music and entertainment events. For details, visit Vokevr.
