Company Description:

London/UK-based Mativision Limited is the market leader in producing and delivering interactive 360 video content and Virtual Reality (VR) experiences from live and recorded events, leveraging our proprietary Mativision® technology and end-to-end workflow.

Since 2012, our team have delivered immersive projects and VR-live-streams, from across the globe, to worldwide audiences for major clients including Facebook, Google, Fox, MTV/Viacom, Unilever, Novartis, Jeep, Coach and several others.

Mativision produced the first ever iOS App with a full live album in 360-degree video (SLASH-Apocalyptic Love). We have live-streamed in VR MTV’s European Music Awards (the top event in Viacom’s annual calendar), for four consecutive years (2015-Milan, 2016-Rotterdam, 2017-London & 2018-Bilbao), reaching hundreds of thousands of viewers every year. Our Live Stream with multiple 360-degree cameras, controllable by viewers from FOX’s American Idol’s Season 10 finale from Los Angeles in 2011 (the first ever multi-camera Live Stream worldwide), reached 3,400,000 viewers. Our 18-hour long continuous, uninterrupted Live Stream from three different cities in Norway on the National Constitution Day in 2017, commissioned and delivered directly to Facebook, reached one million viewers. Live performances aside, in 2016 we live streamed in VR for the first time ever, a full two-hour live surgical operation from St. Barts/London (highlighted in Oculus Connect3 Keynote speech), registering 55,000 views worldwide and produced many more surgical operations from leading hospitals since.

Since then, Mativision is helping build the future of VR in Medical Education & Training, delivered through the proprietary VLIPPmed™ mobile VR platform, the first global VR platform focusing on Medical VR, which has more than 100,000 installations worldwide. Mativision’s VLIPPclass®, VR-based Seminar Delivery system allows any classroom to deliver synced VR experiences to groups of users, using synchronised VR Headsets.

Mativision is the trusted partner whenever the core requirement is producing and/or delivering live streamed VR content and immersive AR & MR applications to a single special person or to hundreds of thousands, even millions of users, with reliability and dependability.
