How OmniVirt’s 360° VR Player compares to other players in the market

360° VR content is proving to be the next best tool for SMBs and enterprises looking to revitalize their brand storytelling and product marketing. Businesses ranging from local tourism boards to multinational auto manufacturers are investing in 360° VR content to help boost brand awareness and sales.

The Distribution / Embedding Challenge

But once businesses have invested in 360° VR content, the biggest challenge for SMBs and enterprises lies in broadly distributing that content. Our 360° VR Player solves this distribution challenge.

Without the OmniVirt VR Player, businesses face the following dilemma:

  • Upload to YouTube but find that their customers accessing content on mobile can’t access the experience
  • Encourage hotspot use but find they need to develop hotspots using sophisticated software for YouTube
  • Upload to Facebook but find that customers can only access the content if on Facebook
  • Upload to Vimeo but find that watching Vimeo 360 videos on mobile requires downloading the Vimeo app
  • Use the JW Player but lack a mobile viewing solution and the ability to stream at 8K resolution

What if a brand wants to upload to broaden their audience reach on web properties outside of the social platforms like YouTube and Facebook? What if a brand wants to invest in its O&O sites? They need a player solution that can support mobile use cases at the high streaming quality with hotspot functionality. This is where OmniVirt comes in.
