The story

Small and medium-sized businesses that need a new way of interacting with customers during the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic can take advantage of an offer from Munich-based startup VRdirect for access to its platform for creating their own VR content.

Businesses can obtain six months of free access to VRdirect Studio, with the offer valid until 30 September.

VRdirect Studio enables businesses to design and publish VR content on all common platforms. 360° images and videos can be used to create VR tours, virtual showrooms and virtual product demonstrations.

The #stayathome licence grants a business up to 25 360° images and a 360° video, which can be combined in a single VR application.

VRdirect said the licence makes it possible for a user to create a virtual walkthrough of a real showroom, with different areas capable of being represented by a separate 360° image and navigable via arrows in the VR application. Call-to-action buttons also allow customers to interact directly with the environments and storefronts.

VRdirect also provides support for the production of 360° content and VR projects, and is offering a 15% discount on the purchase of the 360° camera ONE X from manufacturer Insta360.

For exhibiting, VRdirect’s web player hosts dedicated content and is accessible via VR headset, smartphone and web browser. It can also be integrated with various websites.

Dr Rolf Illenberger, managing director and chief executive officer of VRdirect, stressed the importance of businesses finding new ways to interact with their customers. He said: “In the current situation, the usual distribution channels are breaking away in many industries. With the #stayathome licence, we provide companies with the necessary tools to stay in touch with their customers and to present their products and services effectively.”
