NextVR Launches on PlayStation®VR

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Oct. 20, 2017 – NextVR, the leader in broadcasting live events in virtual reality, is bringing its portfolio of sports and entertainment content to PlayStation®VR (PS VR). Developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment, PS VR is a virtual reality system that works with PlayStation®4 (PS4™), transporting users from their living room into the virtual world of the content they’re playing. With PS VR* and the NextVR app, users can enjoy the most immersive live event experience available from the comfort of their living room.

“We’re committed to offer the NextVR app on more platforms for fans to experience our live events in virtual reality,” said David Cole, NextVR CEO. “PS VR boosts the overall experience, and is a great platform to showcase our content. The opportunity to reach the PlayStation audience gives us the chance to create memorable experiences for a  new class of fans.”

Proximity is no longer a barrier to experience the best events. Sports and entertainment fans can be thousands of miles away from an event and enjoy the most immersive experience available with their PS VR and the NextVR app.

This collaboration comes just in time for the NBA season where fans can experience 27 fully immersive virtual reality games. All fans can enjoy a free preview on Oct. 21 with the Dallas Mavericks at the Houston Rockets and on Oct. 24 for the New York Knicks at the Boston Celtics.

The heart of NextVR’s innovation is a patented stereoscopic compression technology that allows high quality transmission, creating an immersive VR experience. NextVR’s signature immersive 3D VR technology is enhanced through PS VR to provide fans unique access to their favorite events. The PS VR headset was designed to be balanced, comfortable, and adjustable, delivering an optimal fit for users.
