VRNext: The Network for VR Technology, Content and Finance
VR, AR and MR are reshaping the user and customer experience of brands and content, how audiences consume digital content, from film and games to advertising, and will permanently transform education and social media. Immersive storytelling not only improves entertainment experiences, it introduces the use of narratives also to industry applications or production processes. Which technical solutions and content will create the maker or breaker in conquering the mass market? Who and how the killer application for VR/AR/MR will be developed and financed?
VRNext Network, coordinated by Media Deals, wants to respond to that question with the support of tech companies, financiers and content providers and creators.
The VRNext Network:
• aims to build a European Forum for an exchange of expertise and best practise, for technology transfer, (co)investment and distribution
• will allow content producers and distributors, researchers, developers, technicians and sector stakeholders to find partners as well as knowhow
• will access market validation for VR/AR/MR projects, products and services through direct access to a specialised investment network
