MoveoPlus and Paramount Announce VR Simulator Partnership

At the VRTL Summit, MoveoPlus LLC, developer of Moveo, the world’s first 360 degree free-rotation VR simulator, announced a strategic partnership agreement with Paramount Studios. Under the new partnership, MoveoPlus will provide Moveo Virtual Reality Simulator (Moveo) units to Paramount as part of two upcoming initiatives that will reinvent the cinematography experience and theme park entertainment for customers.

Moveo is a revolutionary full motion and 360 degree free-rotation virtual reality simulator that projects users through fully immersive 3D worlds, flying them through space, while they experience the gravitational pull of objects nearby. The simulator is compatible with all major head mounted displays (HMDs) on the market.

As movie theaters continue to compete with new technologies available within the home, Paramount has selected Moveo in an effort to re-engage viewers. Paramount will revolutionize the current movie theater experience with Moveo, providing viewers with a truly immersive, virtual reality experience, beyond what they can achieve at home. The collaboration with Paramount will also include working with content creators such as JJ Abrams and Michael Bay, giving them access to cutting-edge technology that will transport audiences even further into the visually exciting and unforgettable worlds that they create.

“Virtual reality is ushering in the next digital frontier and as the technology moves into mainstream use, our customers expect that we will deliver new social experiences that allow them to interact with the digital realm in a far more immersive way,” said Tom Hayes, Head of New Media at Paramount Studios. “The Moveo platform will be an important building block as we reimagine these activities, injecting them with a stronger sense of realism, to create a one-of-a-kind experience that can’t be achieved through traditional VR headsets alone.”

“To date, the rise of virtual reality has been driven by gaming, and other industries have just begun to scratch the surface, but with Moveo’s innovative technology, other forms of entertainment are starting to break through – the most significant of which is film,” said Tommaso Boralevi, Innovations Director, MoveoPlus. “Paramount continues to push the envelope with VR technology, establishing itself as a leader in the digital revolution and we’re excited to partner with them in creating experiences that will more deeply connect humans to the virtual worlds they are exploring.”
