Find out how MixCast can transform how you work (and play)!
What is Mixed Reality or Augmented Virtuality?
Augmented Virtuality is an exciting new medium that allows for a more engaging experience for spectators! Augmented Virtuality, a form of Mixed Reality, breaks down the isolation of Virtual Reality and enables viewers outside of virtual reality to understand and relate to what’s going on in a VR experience.
Most videos and broadcasts of VR only show the user’s perspective – what they’re seeing in their headset. Augmented Virtuality provides an immersive view of a real person in a virtual world on a television, monitor, projection screen, or mobile device. By combining video of people in the real world with the VR experience that they’re in, spectators can understand what the VR participant is experiencing first-hand, and can then share that experience and connect with the VR voyager!
What is MixCast?
Virtual Reality is notoriously difficult to showcase and present. MixCast solves that problem by helping people showcase experiences from inside VR.
MixCast blends real people with virtual worlds to create compelling 2D content from VR applications in real-time. An audience can now overcome the isolation of VR by viewing a person immersed in VR on a television, monitor, projection screen, or mobile phone.
MixCast provides a quick and simple one-time setup, and works across every supported application with no additional configuration, making it the premier choice. Use MixCast coupled with your VR experiences to build stronger human connections today by replacing avatars, cartoon characters and first-person-views with real people.
Partners & Clients
''Cognitive3D uses MixCast to demo our spatial analytics technology to potential customers. MixCast has enabled us to show real people interacting with digital environments, allowing us to communicate a normally complex topic more effectively.''
We’ve partnered with Intel to optimize MixCast software for Intel hardware. Intel’s compute power increases MixCast's ability to provide near-instantaneous renderings of content, for developers of VR experiences, educators demonstrating complex concepts, streamers who broadcast their experiences and more.
“Using MixCast is a no-brainer. It’s super simple to integrate and for players to use. Its feature list is border line magical and keeps growing.”
''We're always thinking about the best way to demonstrate Unity's VR capabilities, and showing them on-stage is an even more daunting task. But using MixCast in our demo live at Vision Summit was straightforward and impressive!''
''MixCast VR is the best (and only) way to demonstrate the incredible impact of VR on traditional medical applications without putting users into a VR system. It's made it substantially easier for us to demonstrate the value of our products to a larger audience than we could ever hope to reach with one-on-one demos.''
