YouVisit Unveils New Industry Standard for VR Experiences

Offers immersive, in-platform virtual experiences at 5 times the standard resolution across all devices.

New York, NY, February 28, 2016 --( YouVisit, a leading virtual reality technology provider, today announced a new milestone in virtual reality. Its platform is capable of streaming the industry’s highest resolution VR experience. The cutting-edge algorithms behind the new capabilities enable experiences to be viewed at nearly 5 times the standard resolution, providing a natural, immersive experience that mimics real-life.

Looking to alleviate the largest challenge to consumer VR adoption, YouVisit addressed the issue of consumer access through improved content quality and usability. Today, immersive VR videos require much higher resolution and bandwidth than traditional content and current devices in the market cannot handle these high requirements. This forces VR companies to deliver content at lower resolution and size leading to a subpar experience. By mimicking natural human vision, YouVisit has maximized the density of the data shown based on the direction the user is looking. This not only allows each experience to be powered at a higher resolution, but also enables the content file to be smaller, requiring lower bandwidth and minimal download time.

“Today’s standards are still surprisingly low when it comes to the quality of content we are providing to users,” said Taher Baderkhan, CTO of YouVisit. “When it comes to driving consumer adoption of VR, we need to not only be focusing on drawing users in for a one-time experience, but helping them to find reasons to come back daily. With the integration of a higher standard of resolution, we are encouraging easier access to content and more dynamic experiences each time a user puts on a headset.”

The new resolution is currently in Beta testing and will be available to the general public in the second quarter of 2016. Demos of the product are available upon request.
