The Pixvana SPIN Studio platform is the world’s only integrated XR platform that helps scale your experiences by simplifying the process of creating and sharing interactive XR content — all from the cloud.
The platform is composed of four parts:
- SPIN Studio
- SPIN Play
- SPIN Guide
Look here for a complete feature list of the platform.
SPIN Studio is the central hub of all activity on the platform. It is entirely browser-based, meaning it can be accessed from anywhere and by any device running desktop-class Google Chrome.
SPIN Studio allows you to upload and manage large 360 videos, images, and multi-channel audio files. You can curate video playlists, prepare interactive projects to be finished with our ingenic creator, and white-label the gallery experience. SPIN Studio enables you to manage your fleet of headsets, and collect data about viewer behavior in your immersive videos.
SPIN Studio comes in different SKUs:
- SPIN Studio Lite is free and enables fast cloud content distribution.
- SPIN Studio Pro enables creation of non-linear interactive experiences, ingenic editor, and cloud stitching.
- SPIN Studio Enterprise includes all Pro and Lite features with unlimited device distribution and enterprise-level support + partnership.
SPIN Play is the platforms's VR application to view and create XR content. It allows users to easily stream or download high quality videos uploaded through SPIN Studio to their Oculus device.
SPIN Play is capable of playing VR video back at 5.7k, or the highest available resolution on Oculus devices. If you download the 5.7k version of the video, then you can lock down SPIN Play for offline kiosk mode. For faster previews you can stream VR videos without downloading.
SPIN Play is also an ingenic creation tool, meaning that you can create VR while in VR. Below is a video previewing that creation process.
SPIN Guide is the dekstop-based application that allows a presenter to conduct a group of people in headsets. SPIN Guide is available on Windows and Mac platforms.
SPIN Guide has real-time control over the entire group of headsets running SPIN Play over a LAN. It can pause/play, sync to precise points in time, and bring everyone out into the waiting lobby. The presenter can monitor where users are looking at all times with uniquely colored tracking dots, and keep tabs on headset battery life and verify LAN connection. When guiding non-linear experiences, SPIN Guide can get a birds eye view of where each user is in the experience.
spinxr.com is the web hosting and playback service that allows you to stream VR videos from nearly every device.
spinxr.com runs on iOS, Mac Android, and Windows platforms. You can quickly input a video or SPIN's nine-digit share key and begin streaming.
