Radiant Images, an award-winning solution provider in immersive technology and high-end VR camera rental agency, today announced a partnership with Amsterdam-based Purple Pill to add the Headjack app creation and content management system for 360-degree video as a standard part of a camera rental package.
Starting today, every company that rents a VR camera system from Radiant Images will receive three months of Headjack Agency (worth $2,697) for free, including a personal onboarding training by the Headjack support team.
“At Radiant we provide cameras to the largest brands and agencies in the world, but once their production is finished, our clients need an easy, fast and reliable way to distribute their content in the highest possible quality to the various VR headsets,” said Michael Mansouri, co-founder of Radiant Images. “That is where Headjack comes in. This partnership allows us to offer a more complete package to our clients.”
Headjack makes it possible to create white-label, multi-platform VR apps within minutes instead of months and without writing a single line of code. The Headjack API on the other hand enables developers to easily create a fully-functioning VR interface using the popular Unity game engine, allowing complete customization of the app experience without having to build a complete backend system first. It is hosting, transcoding, app creation, content management and analytics in a single, powerful package.
Radiant clients will find a flyer in their camera case with a special link to request their free Agency account and personal onboarding training. If you’re not a Radiant client yet but do want to give Headjack a go, visit https://headjack.io to create a free account.
