Perth couple, Alison and Jason ‘Jace’ Larke, welcomed their third child, son Steele Larke, to the world on February 20. Although in Chinchilla, a remote Queensland mining town, using the Samsung Gear VR headset, Jace was able to experience the birth in real time, almost as though he was standing in the Perth delivery room – 4,000 kilometres away.

The Immersive Media Platform
We provide a unique end-to-end platform that allows our customers and partners to take advantage of not only our capture and production technology but our industry leading content management and distribution platform.
Immersive Media’s high resolution, high frame rate cameras are available in a number of models and configurations, feeding 360˚ video to our turnkey high performance recording and encoding decks.
It’s one thing to capture terabytes of video, it’s another thing to stitch it together and compress it so that it can be experienced smoothly on any device. Our patented stitching algorithms give you the best compression rates in the business and leave you with a totally seamless work of art.
The im360 Server Platform is a collection of web services and client applications that provide interactive media management solutions for immersive content like 360 videos. Video browsing, complex asset management and industrial applications can all be built with the Immersive Media platform.
We want the world to see your work, so we’ve spent a ton of time developing software that can smoothly show your 360˚ video experience across all major desktop, mobile and VR devices.
Our video is tailor made for sharing. Viewers can easily use Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social networks to pass on the interactive experience to friends in their social networks.
Immersive Media has enabled MuchMusic to give our fans exclusive access to our live events and programming that makes them feel like they are actually in our studio. And, the more we allow our viewers to control the show, the less likely they are to flip away. In fact, during our first event using imLIVE, we doubled our audience in the second half of the show as our viewers encouraged others to check out the 360-degree video over social media such as Twitter and Facebook. The sponsorship possibilities with imLIVE are also really sexy and unique, and we look forward to working with our clients and partners on building a relevant experience around their campaigns. Being at the leading edge of technology is enabling MuchMusic to interact with its audience in powerful, new ways.Ryan Trotman
