This partnership marks a significant leap forward in location-based augmented reality (AR) experiences for conference, concert and event audiences around the globe.
Immersal is a leader in spatial mapping and visual positioning technology. Its Visual Positioning System (VPS) has earned acclaim for its ability to seamlessly overlay digital content onto the real world. This technology holds the potential to shape how people interact with their environments in navigation, gaming, retail, and various other applications. Burst is at the forefront of creating original virtual fan experiences that bridge the gap between the digital and physical worlds. Burst’s proprietary metaverse platform combines real-time photorealistic graphics with groundbreaking technologies like pixel-streaming, NFTs and blockchain. Burst works closely with A-list artists in creating immersive, gamified experiences.
Integrating Immersal's VPS technology with Burst's AR solutions enables even more accurate and engaging location-based AR experiences. Seamlessly blending real and digital worlds will enhance user engagement, create new revenue opportunities for sports events and entertainment businesses. Combining Burst’s user-centric approach with Immersal’s precision will also bring location-based AR to a wider audience through applications in retail, navigation, education and more.
