#endPoverty

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.

VR Vaccinations for Kids

For a lot of kids, getting pricked by a needle during their vaccinations is a stressful and painful experience. VR can help remove a lot of the pain and fear that they experience at the doctor’s office.

Watch this short video to see how pediatricians in Brazil have begun using VR to immerse kids into a fantasy world, distracting them from the vaccines as they are administered.

Spatial Audio in Music

Seeing live music always a great experience for music lovers, partly because the intimacy of acoustic sound in a room makes us feel the presence of the music more so than listening to a stereo recording.
Spatial Audio is evolving the way that producers create music and the way that we listen to music. New recording and mixing techniques reflect the way we receive sound in real life, creating intense and rich soundscapes you would experience if you were actually there.
Crosswater’s Audio Engineers have been dedicated to Spatial Audio for years, and are ready to incorporate these new and exciting methods into your mix. Tag a musician, and tell them to consult Crosswater about how these methods could be incorporated into their music!

Jazz VR/360 Experience

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.

Oculus Quest

The next iteration of Oculus’ VR headset has been introduced by Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.

The new model will combine the benefits of existing VR headsets and minimize the negative aspects that are common complaints. Oculus Quest will be wireless and will not require a powerful PC to operate, but it will still hold the same gaming functions that VR users enjoy by using the Oculus Rift.

Exciting new developments in VR technology will continue over the coming years, propelling the industry further and further into mainstream success. The Oculus Quest is expected to be released in spring of 2019.

VR Training

Virtual Reality has been adopted by many different industries for many different purposes. One of the most common purposes for Immersive VR/360 Media is it’s use in job training.
The manufacturing industry has seen a large drop-off in skilled workers. They have been searching for innovative training methods to prepare prospective employees for their jobs quickly, safely, and cost-effectively.
VR education meets all of these criteria, as well as providing the viewer with “the ability to experience real-life situations otherwise not available through traditional classroom settings.”
All of these reasons are why manufacturing companies are beginning to employ VR training and education.
Contact Crosswater at (716) 884-8486, crosswater@crosswater.net, Facebook Messenger, or LinkedIn to learn how VR training may be beneficial for your business or organization.
