A Very Important Year for VR

Founded in 2000, Humaneyes is a veteran in 3D and animated content creation. A first-time exhibitor at IFA, Shahar Bin-Nun, the CEO and Founder of Humaneyes, says that Virtual Reality will become a major communication platform and his company will be a leading player in the VR eco system. We started by asking about what drew the company to IFA…

We believe that IFA will provide a great stage for showcasing the Vuze camera and also for some interesting announcements.

Is 2017, the year that VR will explode?

We believe that 2017 will be a very important year for VR with the growing adoption and use of VR headsets and the growing amount of content that is produced for VR with cameras such as ours.
There is a growing interest from businesses and organisations that are starting to explore the many opportunities and use cases that VR presents from real estate, marketing, tourism, education, events to personal experiences. All the above will put the VR in a very different place from where it is right now.

IFA WILL PROVIDE A GREAT STAGE FOR SHOWCASING THE VUZE CAMERA

It’s a significant move having the world’s first 360-degree VR camera, can you tell us about the development of this product?

Humaneyes was founded in 2000, and by 2015 we were already veterans in the field of 3D and animated content creation, display and processing.
This allowed us to use our vast knowledge and more than 70 patents in various fields of 3D and photographic 3D that we already obtained and focus our development efforts on
creating the first 3D 360 virtual reality camera.

What will be the market drivers that take VR mainstream?

Easy handling and engaging content. More and more companies enter the VR eco system and VR technology is getting more and more innovative and easier to handle.
Entry barriers are much lower, content creators will be able to create more interesting and engaging content that will attract more and more people into VR.
