NAB 2016: SANTA CLARA, CA — Continuing its commitment to VR, Assimilate (www.assimilateinc.com) has added support for the Samsung GearVR headset, a VR accessory for any Samsung Galaxy smartphone for accessing immersive content.
For content creators active in the production and post production of films, videos and TV episodes, this means they can effectively stream VR content from their Scratch Web cloud-based Website through a standard browser to a Samsung Galaxy smartphone with the GearVR headset for mobile review and approval.
Assimilate recently announced the expansion of its Scratch Web cloud-platform capabilities to offer the first professional, Web-based dailies/review tool for reviewing headset-based VR content. Scratch Web — already supporting the Oculus Rift and Google headsets — offers a secure, easy, and fast means of reviews for 360-degree VR content.
Scratch Web VR is available immediately, starting at $79 per month for a private channel through the Assimilate store on the company’s Website.
