The VR Kino+Theater platform integrates traditional forms of entertainment (theater and cinema), with advanced interactive media, (virtual reality and gaming). In this way, it solves the scalability of audience and presentation familiarity, while providing greater flexibility for innovative alternative formats.
The foundations of our proposed solution lies onto three pillars related to technology, production, and delivery aspects which, we believe are the directions for the future media.
The operation of such ecosystem entails new roles for producers, performers and participants.
