Jaunt VR, the company creating tech for capturing 360 degree 3D VR experiences, has today finally revealed their first publically available content: a performance taken from Sir Paul McCartney’s recent Candlestick Park gig in San Francisco earlier this year.
McCartney 360 3D Concert Footage Released by Jaunt VR
Jaunt VR today released news of its first publicly available content filmed using their proprietary 360 degree, stereoscopic capture and processing systems. To date, Jaunt has raised more than $34 million in investments for its technology, but outside of private demonstrations and a few teasers, the company has not made public any of its early 360 degree 3D VR film content.
The release, now available via an app downloadable from the Google Play store, is an immersive version of the live performance of Paul McCartney’s song, Live and Let Die, and gives users a real taste of where Jaunt VR is headed with its content creation program. Jaunt VR says the footage was shot live in front of 70,000 fans at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park earlier this year. Jaunt kept the filming largely under wraps until today’s reveal.
“Viewers will experience a completely new level of immersion: complete freedom to look in any direction and experience every moment of the performance in true stereoscopic 3D with reactive, omnidirectional audio,” the company said. “The experience puts you right in the crowd, onstage, backstage, or even right by Paul’s side as he performs.”
Jaunt says that the footage is coming soon to both the Oculus Rift and Gear VR. As indicated on the company’s content page, Jaunt is also soon to release The Mission, Kaiju Fury, and Black Mass, three made-for-VR short films that the company has shot with its proprietary 360 degree 3D capture technology.
