SPIN Story

Deliver experiences to any audience

SPIN Publish let’s you program in-store or for events. Organize experiences into playlists that audiences can dip into with content organized by category or subject.

Stream at the highest quality assets with true Field of View Adaptive Streaming (FOVAS) technology to deliver pristine 50 megapixels images at HD bit rates.

Slow starts, high latency, and stuttering playback can ruin VR experiences. All SPIN content is backed by a scalable CDN that ensures perfect playback.

SPIN Publish

VR experiences delivered to all headsets

SPIN Play delivers content to all leading VR headsets, including Google Daydream, Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift. For ultimate flexibility, add web playback for easy consumption in any browser.

Need to simplify the experience for your venue? Kiosk Mode can lock down content for stores, film festivals, museums, and more: no IT support required.

Enterprise partners can access Pixvana’s SPIN Player SDK to create custom apps. With the SDK, Unity-based apps can stream SPIN-encoded content.

Pixvana SPIN runs on a wide variety of platforms. At launch, we support high-end PC platforms using the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift CV1 headset. You can deploy on mobile platforms including Samsung Gear VR. We have done preliminary work to support Google Daydream headset with the Google Pixel phone, this will release when Google finalizes Unity support for Daydream. SPIN Player will also support playback in a reference web player that can be used in most major browsers.  Support for console platforms is underway and we will have announcements on specifics soon. We will support other mobile devices with releases later in 2017.

We support upload as .mp4 files from support cameras, image sequences in JPG, TIF, EXR and PNG format sequences along with ProRes movie files.

We will add custom rig support in the future by importing PTGUI template formats in the stitch app. Users would have to process and characterize a custom rig in PTGUI first, then upload the template to the SPIN Stitch Conform tool to create stitched output.

We currently support just the GoPro Omni, Ricoh Theta, and Samsung Gear 360 cameras. We are with with Nokia Ozo and Kodak PixPro cameras and will look to add these and more later in 2017. Cameras that can shoot and deliver 2K to 16K masters will work with our platform.

There are no plans to make a desktop app version of SPIN Studio. The apps are deeply integrated into our accelerated multi-GPU pipeline in the cloud. This type of setup cannot be replicated on a desktop Mac or PC.

Pixvana SPIN runs best in the latest version of Google Chrome on MacOS, or Windows.

The upload tool runs as a desktop application on macOS and Windows 7/10. Pixvana decided to create an upload app to assure that large renders could complete without problems that can occur with web-based upload tools running in a browser.
