ABOUT VIRO MEDIA
Viro Media enables mobile developers to rapidly build virtual reality (VR) experiences. Developers write in React Native, and Viro runs their code natively across all mobile VR (including Google Daydream, Samsung Gear VR, and Google Cardboard for iOS and Android).
The Viro Developer Platform supports all immersive media: 360 photos and videos, stereoscopic content, interactive 3D models, and more. Companies can use Viro to build entirely new VR apps, or to augment their existing 2D apps with VR features.
The Perfect Alternative
The Viro Developer Platform is the perfect alternative to specialized game engines: it allows companies to focus on what they do best, in the languages they know best, instead of training or hiring specialized 3D developers. And unlike WebVR solutions, Viro runs natively, enabling 60 FPS performance and full access to underlying headsets and controllers.
Viro Media has raised $2.5 million in seed funding from leading investors including Softbank/SBNY, Eniac Ventures, Lowercase Capital, Box Group, Betawork. Presence Capital and Rugged Ventures.
The founders Danny Moon, Raj Advani, Vik Advani and Robin Har are startup veterans having previously founded UpNext, a 3D mapping company acquired by Amazon which became the Amazon mapping platform.
