Today we launch the closed beta version of our white-labelled distribution platform LucidWeb Pro at Venice Virtual Reality, part of the 76th Venice International Film Festival.
It has been a long journey full of new challenges and accomplishments. Along this road, we had the chance to work with recognised leaders in content creation and media innovation worldwide such as Netapp (US), VRT (BE), and ARTE France. Our collaborations have been key to shape the closed beta version of our new white-labelled 360°/VR content distribution platform LucidWeb Pro that we launch today.
Our advisory board has so far relied on people like Bindi Karia who brings a unique experience in supporting startups in terms of company creation, HR and access to capital. This expertise has proved to be instrumental in chaperoning us through the different stages of commercialising this visionary product. Ultimately it was crucial for us to bring aboard someone with key-insight in content creation which is why we are elated that Sarah Wolozin, the Director of the MIT Open Documentary Lab, has accepted to join our board. Sarah is a well-known figure in the field of interactive content storytelling and she shares our vision on the need to make VR content more accessible.
As a European company, we felt it most comfortable to launch our platform at Venice Virtual Reality which is one of the top reference festivals for VR worldwide. The ground-breaking quality of these stories and its capacity to surprise us every time is something that has driven our mission since the very beginning. VR is pushing and challenging the limits of storytelling as no other medium is. Unfortunately, it remains a very niche market and only a very limited audience gets access to this content. These amazing stories should be able to reach larger audiences without any distribution friction. With LucidWeb Pro we are bringing a solution to this prominent issue.
Our experience and the projects we took on have allowed us to become experts in web-based solutions and we are very adamant on our web-first approach. Our white-labelled platform LucidWeb Pro uses the browser as a base allowing us to leverage its features for high-end results. As a content creator, you can have any 360°/VR content accessible for streaming via the browser on desktops, mobile devices, and VR headsets; thanks to an out-of-the-box, easy-to-use and human-centric platform with a UX/UI design specifically optimised for web-based distribution.
What is best is that there is no need for an application and your stories are always one click away from your audience. While we are happy to share our platform in these early stages, our mission remains to be evolving towards a bigger vision every day adding new features as the market evolves.
We are very happy to offer you a chance to be one of the first people to see, test, and give feedback on our state-of-the-art platform. Go to lucidweb.pro and apply for exclusive access!
