Jaunt's latest technology offers volumetric content as another medium
for its partners to tell stories and create IP. Volumetric capture makes
it possible to film a subject from a 360-degree perspective, then output
an avatar that matches the subject's appearance, movements, and vocals
in the form of a shareable, to-scale augmented reality asset. Jaunt's
proprietary approach utilizes a simple capture stage with a streamlined
setup, and leverages the same streaming technology Jaunt developed for
delivering high-quality VR and AR experiences. The ease of use and
established distribution tools make it ideal for companies looking for
an efficient way to add cutting-edge immersive content to their media
strategies.

"At Jaunt, we're always thinking about expanding the boundaries of
storytelling by exploring the full immersive content spectrum; from
virtual reality, to augmented & mixed reality, volumetric, and even new
formats that our advanced development teams are working on," said Arthur
van Hoff, Jaunt CTO & Founder. "But our primary focus is empowering our
partners to harness these evolving technologies, using the Jaunt XR
Platform as the foundation for delivering their cutting-edge immersive
content. Our ongoing research and development will serve as a
cornerstone of the XR Platform's evolution, and our volumetric
capabilities are only the first step in this initiative."

Jaunt's investment in R&D signifies the company's focus on building
business-ready solutions for creating and sharing next-generation
immersive content. Other initiatives in the pipeline include additional
volumetric streaming capabilities, immersive content driven by machine
learning, and technologies foundational to enabling premium XR
experiences.

Since 2013, Jaunt has been at the forefront of immersive content,
quickly becoming the premier producer and distributor of consumer
cinematic VR by creating an end-to-end pipeline for creating and
delivering VR experiences. Today, Jaunt has evolved beyond the consumer
VR space, into a B2B-focused company that helps partners deliver new
forms of XR content spanning augmented, virtual, and mixed realities.

"Standing as one of the early, major players in the virtual and
augmented reality space, we've taken our consumer-facing technology and
storytelling capabilities and made them available to our partners," said
van Hoff. "Our B2B focus addresses a need for companies to be able to
deliver AR and VR, and we see our XR Platform's real-time volumetric
capabilities as yet another avenue for them to share engaging stories
through their own channels. It's just one of the ways we're continuing
to push the boundaries of XR content at Jaunt."

At the core of Jaunt's distribution capabilities is the Jaunt XR
Platform, a business solution brand partners and publishers use to
integrate immersive content into their consumer-facing applications and
channels. Announced
at the end of 2017
with Sky
established as a major customer, the Jaunt XR Platform allows augmented
reality assets, virtual reality content, and 2D assets to be delivered
across devices and live side-by-side with existing media libraries.

Jaunt customers range from global consumer brands to entertainment
industry giants. Sky, Diageo, and NTT Data currently use Jaunt's XR
Platform to deliver immersive content to millions of viewers. Visit www.jauntxr.com
