Two sites bring focus on VR Developer Community needs as well as VR consumer games and applications
Oct 3, 2016 - Digital Media Online today announced the launch of two vertical sites focusing on the emerging Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality markets and technologies. According to CEO Lou Wallace, "The timing of the launch of these new sites is perfect. Research firm Superdata Research has projected sales of VR software and hardware will hit $2.8 billion this year, and they foresee it increasing to $22 billion by 2019 and $40 billion by 2020."
"Now that Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Samsung Gear are shipping and Sony's Playstation VR is schedule for release Oct 13, 2016, the need for information for consumers on hardware, peripherals, graphics cards and of course games has become critical. Our new www.VRGamerNet.com will address those needs."
"Just as important however is the VR Developer side of the equation. While the technology is now real and shipping, there is still a lack of industry wide standards and processes for developers to implement the software and content. The needs from the VR Developer point of view are significant. From 360 Video to 3D Software, User Interface issues and multiplatform development, to where to go to find production services, equipment purchases and rentals, hire talent, programmers and technicians. To discover the best way to create and monetize VR/AR, developers will need this kind of information along with an industry wide vehicle to get their voices heard. We intend to offer that on www.VRDeveloperNet.com."
Jeff Edson, CEO of Assimilate said "The VR market is exploding with content being created every day. All agree, the key to the broad success of VR lies in delivery of high quality imagery. The tools being used are evolving along with the workflows. Having a place to go to that consolidates information to content creators is critical."
VR Developer Net will feature project stories from real developers, opinions and suggestions from within the developer industry as well as news from and about the producers, product resources, service providers and facilities in the market. VR Gamer Net will supply the reader information on the latest games, buying guides, news and reviews and videos showing game play and products and peripherals. Each site is a standalone publication but will allow easy access to the other from its navigation menus.
