The educational program offers a free 2-year license to drive learning programs with virtual reality.
Pixvana, a company specializing in immersive video that captured $ 14 million last year, has launched Pixvana Education, an initiative that aims to support learning programs with virtual reality by donating its software SPIN Studio distribution and creation to schools, universities, libraries, museums and non-profit organizations. The program offers access to a 2-year license with multiple accounts that allows, among others, to manage and play video content simultaneously on platforms such as Rift, Vive, Windows MR, Oculus Mobile and Daydream. In addition, selected centers will enjoy early access to the new creation options they work on, including interactive hotspots and color adjustments.
“Pixvana’s education program is helping create the future of immersive video by giving creatives access to cutting-edge professional VR tools,” says Julia Fryett, director of partnerships at Pixvana. “By empowering the next generation of creative geniuses with the SPIN Studio platform, there’s really no limit to where VR storytelling can go.”
SPIN Studio allows you to manage all processes such as stitching, editing, publishing and playback from a single workflow, thus accelerating the creation and distribution of immersive videos that are hosted in the cloud with resolutions of up to 8K. Among its features, it offers adaptive streaming based on FOV (similar to foveated rendering).
The University of Santa Clara and the University of the Arts in London are some of the centres that are already part of the initiative. All those interested can request access to the program through this link.
