Yesterday, the first and inaugural meeting of the VR Industry Forum took place at CES in Las Vegas. The newly established Forum collects industry leaders in VR360, including Sky, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Movielabs, TNO, and tiledmedia’s VR streaming partners Harmonic and Viaccess-Orca. The purpose of the Forum is to make VR an attractive, high quality experience for consumers.
Acting on behalf of TNO, tiledmedia’s Rob Koenen is one of the forum’s founding fathers, driving the organisation from an idea to incorporation. Rob has been appointed as the Forum’s Secretary, to serve next to President David Price of Ericsson, and Treasurer Paul Higgs of Huawei. He is also Board Director on behalf of TNO.
Together with our partners Viaccess-Orca and Harmonic, we will show our tiled VR streaming magic at CES, in Las Vegas, from 5 to 8 January. The unique demonstration will show very high quality 360VR streaming over a real CDN to a mobile Android device – the Samsung Gear VR. More details in the press release by Viaccess-Orca, who will host the demonstration in their suite. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in a demonstration or a discussion!
Tiledmedia was selected to pitch to the VR Venture Capital Alliance (VRVCA), on December 6th, in San Francisco. Today, we were proud to learn that we are one of the 10 companies that are given this opportunity, out of total of 500 that submitted their application. Fingers crossed!
