Can you briefly tell us more about your Vivid Virtual?

Nokia OZO  is the 360 camera of choice for Vivid Virtual's 3D porn shoot!

What equipment is Vivid Virtual production team using?

3x Studios uses a range of different tools and technology to accomplish the goals for each experience. In the past, we've used the Nokia Ozo and/or custom GoPro rigs as well as a mix of several post-processing software applications.

 

How did the popular Kim Kardashian Superstar VR Experience come about?

Both 3x Studios and Vivid mutually decided that repurposing the legendary Kim K sex tape  Kim Kardashian Superstar in VR would be a fun and unique twist on our debut release in virtual reality. In a way, it’s like mixing older technology with the new. 3x proposed the idea that we use green screen tech to emulate a model climbing out of the original Kim K sex tape on TV, to join the VR viewer right there in his or her bed.

 

We've learned that Adam Block,  Daniel Dilallo and the team from 3X Studios was behind Vivid Virtual's VR content production, can you tell us more about how the collaboration started? And what's 3X Studios' core-capability in VR and its vision?

Both Adam and Dan’s experience in the gaming industry directly translate to crafting beautiful scenes in VR. Their wisdom and guidance from the tech side, combined with Vivid’s experience in the adult industry make for an ideal match.  It’s been wonderful working with 3x Studios and we’re looking forward to a long-term collaboration effort with their team to really push the technology and breathe some new life into adult entertainment.

 

Is Vivid Virtual  going to offer Bitcoin as an payment option, and pay-per-download in the future?

We may consider adding a bit coin option in the future but for now we are not planning on a pay-per-download option.

 

Affordable 360 camera such as Samsung Gear 360 is now available to consumers. Would Vivid Virtual ever consider accepting user-generated content?

The issue in the adult world is that you have to ensure that everyone in the content has signed off to be there and has submitted proof that they are at least the age of 18 or older. It is a long process that we take very seriously so that limits putting up user-generated content at the moment.

 

Is  VividVirtual going to expand and explore different genres of VR porn?

As we do with all our websites, we try to stay abreast of what genres are the most popular to the adult viewer and put up content that fits that genre. Our current line-up of content already covers various niches and we will continue to do so.

 

What and where do you see 3D VR porn in the next 5 years?

I think we’ll be seeing a greater incorporation of peripheral devices and haptics which are basically additional points of touch input and let’s call it “feel technology” which can increase the sense of being immersed within an experience and also allows the user to reach out and touch. We’ve been exploring these options and the 3x team is working on some very neat ideas as we speak. More to come on that later.

 

When would you predict that VR porn, the format itself becomes the norm?

Soon. While there will always be traditional 2D porn available on computers, phones, etc. I think the more immersive VR experience is a no-brainer for anyone who owns a VR headset. It’s a real game changer and anyone who views our VR content versus a traditional 2D movie will realize the experience is like night & day.

 

What new features can we expect from Vivid Virtual in 2017?

We’re working towards two main goals in 2017:

1.Having the most streamlined and easy to use platform to view and explore new content

2.Offer the highest quality VR adult scenes on the market.

 

Is Vivid Virtual considering 3D live-streaming?

We’ve discussed live streaming with 3x and that’s something we’re interested in. Technically it can be done today but there are some hurdles like average home user bandwidth being adequate. These types of things are felt across the board, not just in adult. We’re working towards providing the end user a higher quality stream and we see value in that area moving forward.
