We chose to name our first product name "SPIN" because it captures the innumerable ways that virtual (VR), augmented (AR), and mixed reality (MR) are shaping cinematic storytelling. At Pixvana, we use the term XR to encompass present (VR, AR, MR) and future terms (X-Reality) for virtual environments. It's our way of describing the broad new frontier of storytelling. Similarly, "SPIN" captures the chaos, dynamism, and allure of virtual reality as an emerging medium for building new universes and new stories.

Adjust Your Focus & Reclaim Rotation

Just like a DJ mixes music or a dancer choreographs movement, virtual reality creators spin together narrative, visual content, and sound into a playlist of experience. Establishing the feeling of presence requires complex storytelling artistry and spatial composition. In the coming months, Pixvana SPIN will introduce a comprehensive suite of VR video authoring and production tools - accessible to anyone from anywhere, in the cloud.

In virtual environments, rotating worlds of experience exist in an ever-expanding universe. The viewer has many possible paths and perspectives. While traditional TV and film present a single point of view, VR video centers the viewer in an immersive, 360-degree sphere. The viewer guides and rotates the universe that surrounds them. Spin your own story with a swivel of the chair, head movement, or even a slight glance. The unfolding series of potential experience in VR continually ask the visitor to create their own experience, as if maneuvering through a cipher.
