CANDLIFY VR Technologies, the developer of InstaVR, is pleased to announce being the first virtual reality developer to offer full compatibility with the latest innovations in video compression methods. Most notably, this includes the recent Facebook innovations to accommodate the next generation of virtual reality videos. InstaVR is a new web based authoring tool platform that enables virtual reality creators to quickly and easily prepare publish-ready formats. InstaVR provides a standard solution for playing any VR images and videos with high performance and an automated integration process to adapt to various VR platform SDKs. InstaVR users can create and publish a VR app to a number of platforms, now including Facebook, in just minutes. As the use of virtual reality and 360 videos has grown dramatically, Facebook has responded by developing cutting edge video compression technology using cube mapping and pyramid coding – designed to make video streaming 10X faster. This creates enormous opportunities for virtual reality developers using InstaVR’s authoring and publishing tools, since InstaVR is fully compatible with Facebook’s streaming video engine. VR apps that are published using InstaVR, can play high-resolution Virtual Reality videos smoothly (without buffering delays) by taking advantage of these Facebook innovations. VR Content developers are invited to evaluate the beta version of InstaVR and may request access via the onsite inquiry form at: http://instavr.co.
