These days it seems as though the movie theater experience is focused more on making the experience more and more immersive with every film. 3D has made a comeback since the 80s and it looks like it’s here to stay, and some theater companies offer you the chance to move and vibrate as if you were in the actual film. However involved 3D and moving movie theater seats make the viewer feel, there is nothing quite as immersive as virtual reality. That’s why Jaunt Studios is developing the technology to create flawless virtual reality film making with what has been dubbed the Jaunt “Neo”.
Who exactly is Jaunt to take on such an ambitious project?
Jaunt is a team of visionary engineers and business people with one goal in mind: to transport the viewer entirely to another plane for a short time through fully immersive virtual reality film making techniques.
According to Jaunt’s webpage, “The idea for Jaunt originated in early 2013 when one of our founders returned from an amazing experience at Zion National Park. What if he could go back there for a brief jaunt, at any time, from any place? The emerging consumer VR industry provides the mechanism to travel to virtual worlds. We aim to put realism back into the virtual reality experience, lending an uncanny sense of presence never before possible with any other technology.”
The idea for the Jaunt NEO was essentially born out of the idea of never truly having to be more than a virtual reality headset away from anywhere you can imagine.
E3 the electronic gaming conference showed that the demand for virtual is going to be very real in the next couple of years, and while the Jaunt NEO likely won’t be available to consumers right away because they aren’t going to be produced in large quantities, their team is going to revolutionize the way we watch movies.
What makes the Jaunt NEO’s virtual reality design so innovative?
NEO was built from the ground up after years of extensive research by a team of brilliant minds. Says Arthur Van Hoff the co-founder of Jaunt, “With NEO we have overcome many of the technical hurdles of producing high quality cinematic VR experiences. NEO is the culmination of several years of research, its image quality and ease-of-use will allow creatives to focus on producing awesome content without the complexity of cameras built from off-the-shelf components not designed for VR.”
Using its 360 degree camera design, and advanced rendering software to create flawless video content, every part on the Jaunt NEO has been carefully chosen to be the best. Jaunt promises to change the way we view video content forever with the Jaunt NEO camera systems.
