Virtual Reality FAQ

Stimulate your senses through 360° immersion

What is Virtual Reality ?

Virtual Reality, VR, Metaverse… Many words define it but what does it actually mean? Virtual reality is an immersive technology that simulates reality with computer-generated 3D content. Even more powerful than cinema or books, this technology lets you live the experience as if you were there! Sounds, lights, textures and more: VR appeals to your senses and stimulates your emotions.
Note: VR is different from augmented reality, which enriches reality by adding 2D and 3D elements.

How does
Virtual Reality work ?

Two components are essential when talking about VR. The most obvious being the virtual reality headset. It allows the user to be immersed in the world that has been created. Simply adjust the VR headset and grasp the two joysticks to take control of the experience! In other words, this device lets you interact with the projected environment. The second component is the software that lets you build the immersive experiences. And that is where WiXar comes in!

in all this ?

  • Import your 360° media into the VR Studio
  • Script your content by adding interactions (from a proposed catalogue).
