The U.S. Army is using immersive VR/360 media for training purposes.
They have been creating realistic 3D simulations of various scenarios to introduce soldiers to accurate combat experiences. These first iterations of VR training are expected to “enable units to enter live training at a much higher level of proficiency,” according to Maj. Gen. Maria Gervais, deputy commanding general of the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center-Training.
VR Training is becoming widely accepted and practiced as a legitimate form of job training for nearly any profession in almost every industry.

Here’s a shot of our Canadian partners, Primacare Living Solutions, trying out the Crosswater-produced VR/360 Dementia care content.
This, coupled with implementing UK-based Dementia Care Matters’ ‘Butterfly Model’ in their facilities, solidifies their dedication to improving the quality of life for their Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients.
Crosswater will be there with them every step of the way on this project, dubbed ‘The Albert Project’, to create all Immersive VR/360 environments and soundscapes to elicit the most impactful and meaningful results.

Buffalo Seminary hosts an open house tonight to introduce potential students to a “tradition of forward thinking” education.
They will also be unveiling their new VR/360 student marketing campaign entitled, “Day In the Life,” produced by Crosswater.
The project took a year in the making, capturing all the special events and experiences that are part of the daily life at the private all-girls school.
Buffalo Seminary is no stranger to forward thinking. In addition to the immersive marketing video, they have partnered with Crosswater on the development of a VR/AI language learning experience for their students.
Nancy Fernandez, Crosswater’s Director of Immersive Education, said “We need more women in the tech sector for representational purposes, cutting out some unintended bias and breaking the age old stereotype that tech is a man’s job. It’s (the VR/AI lab) a pipeline from high school to high tech.”

Today is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
“The best anti-poverty program is a world-class education.” former President Obama remarked in a State of the Union speech.
Here at Crosswater, we firmly agree with that statement, which is why we are dedicated to creating quality educational VR/360 content to inspire students of all socio-economic backgrounds. Our intent is to spark the imagination in young minds with immersive content that has greater retention value and enables them to absorb and understand more of what is achievable. We invite you to share your thoughts on how we can collectively work together to make education fun, and accessible to everyone, and contribute to the eradication of poverty worldwide.

Take a break from reality and enjoy this virtual jazz VR/360 experience!
The Bobby Militello Quartet performs the Bobby Jones tune, “Straight Ahead.”
This virtual experience was made possible by the Buffalo State Music Department with their beautiful Louis P Ciminelli Recital Hall, and by the Buffalo Jazz Collective along with all of the world class musicians who work with them.
The VR/360 experience was recorded by a GoPro OmniPro camera rig, and spatial audio was captured on a Sennheiser Ambisonic microphone.
