Tiledmedia and Gaudio Lab Announce Technology Partnership for VR360 Streaming

Leaders in VR Audio and Video Quality to Release Joint SDK

LOS ANGELES, CA and ROTTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS – Tiledmedia, winner of a 2018 AIS Technology Award and frontrunner in premium VR360 streaming, and Gaudio Lab, an award-winning spatial audio technology company, today announced a partnership to address the emerging VR360 market. The two industry leaders will release a joint SDK in May, combining Tiledmedia’s ClearVR SDK with Gaudio Lab’s Sol audio SDK to offer a high-quality streaming solution for 360-degree audiovisual and VR content.

ClearVR is a high-fidelity VR360 and panoramic streaming solution that removes the “virtual” from VR, delivering a realistic experience. It can be easily integrated into VR players for existing devices that contain industry-standard hardware video decoders, including modern mobile phones and tablets.

Gaudio Lab’s Sol SDK solution goes beyond the limitations of conventional audio formats to provide interactive, immersive and data-rich sound experiences. Sol is codec-agnostic, thus can be easily adopted into any player platform, as well as customized and tailored to specific customer needs.

“Partnering with Gaudio is a logical step for us,” says Rob Koenen, Co-founder and Chief Business Officer of Tiledmedia. “Customers want to integrate an immersive audiovisual experience into their VR streaming offerings. With this joint SDK, we bring an easy-to-integrate, one-stop drop-in solution to the VR market.”

“The ability to stream VR360 video and audio while taking up minimal computational power gives users the freedom to enjoy immersive content on personal and computer devices,” said Adam Levenson, V.P. of Business Development of Gaudio Lab. “Our joint SDK combines cutting-edge technologies that reduces bandwidth demands, offering a smooth and enjoyable VR360 experience.”
