dock10 has launched a new 360VR content service, available for both short and long form work.
360VR is designed to provide immersive experiences for the viewing audience by capturing real life environments and enhancing them with audio-visual effects.
Available on mobile devices, desktop browsers or VR headsets, the created content is then capable of transporting users to any location in the world, enabling them to explore the surroundings in full 360 degrees.
Based in MediaCityUK in Manchester, dock10 provides production workflow solutions, including the BBC and ITV. The company oversees all stages of the content lifecycle, from creation to archiving, and aims to make the move from tape-based to digital distribution as simple and straightforward as possible.
“With the anticipated enormous growth in consumers adopting 360VR headsets we felt that it was an important strategic move for us to develop experience in the production of 360VR content, said Mark Senior, CEO of dock10.
“Our existing infrastructure and skills made this a natural extension for our business and provides us with a compelling proposition. With the technology moving incredibly fast in this area, we are constantly looking at new solutions to ensure that we can create the highest quality content alongside our clients.
“This is not aimed solely at broadcast clients - we’re already seeing significant interest from both the corporate and creative sectors and are very excited to add this to the list of services dock10 has to offer.”
