Super 78 Announces MUSHROOM VR™, The First Virtual Reality Oculus Rift Collaborative Media Review And Approval Tool
LOS ANGELES, CA, June 23, 2015 – Super 78 Studios is pleased to announce the development of Mushroom VR™, its newest proprietary technology innovation. Mushroom VR™ is a groundbreaking review and approval tool for any form of media, especially for immersive multimedia content created for themed experience venues, including museums and theme parks.
Mushroom VR™ and the Oculus Rift deliver an incredibly accurate and collaborative multi-user media review experience. The entire creative team meets and interacts in a shared virtual space, no matter where they are in the real world, dramatically improving upon standard 2D “screen sharing” review applications.
For media within themed attractions and other environment-specific content, Mushroom VR™ brings together media with 3D architectural spaces, practical scenic elements, and live show effects.
By equipping each user with revolutionary annotation tools, Mushroom VR™ brings a pixel-level precision to the review process. With Mushroom VR™, every participant has a flawless photographic memory. Users can watch any projected media in 2D or 3D, on any screen size or shape, pausing, rewinding and fast-forwarding at will.
Mushroom VR™ has already proven itself in the field. As Brent Young, Super 78’s President and Creative Director, explained, “We began creating Mushroom VR™ the day we received the Rift’s DK1. We were able to use it in 2013 during Movie Park Germany’s production of The Lost Temple, the world’s first full field of vision ‘Immersion Tunnel’ attraction. Before any construction began, all of us in Los Angeles, Germany, and the UK were able to sit in the ride vehicle and experience every detail, including the vehicle’s motion programming. Removing the need for expensive full-scale mock-ups and international travel saved the client hundreds of thousands of dollars, and shaved months off the schedule.”
Dina Benadon, Super 78’s CEO, added, “Mushroom VR™ pushes the collaborative media review tool to a whole new reality. In 1994, the theme park industry was buzzing about virtual reality and now, 20 years later, the promise of VR is finally being realized.”
Young is a featured speaker at the TV of Tomorrow Show’s “Reality of Virtual Reality” panel on June 24th at The Golden Gate Club in San Francisco. This “grand finale” panel, closing the 2-day event, “brings together leading creatives and other key figures from the Virtual Reality space to discuss the current state of, and future prospects for, this rapidly emerging medium.”
Mushroom VR™ is currently being offered by invitation only. To apply as a Mushroom VR™ beta-tester, and to stay current with release date announcements, please visit: mushroomvr.com
