Send VR assets to the cloud

Intuitive dashboards make it easy to manage file sizes and streaming costs. Collaborate on VR projects around the world, and control access based on team and role.

Deliver optimized experiences

SPIN Publish encodes high-resolution VR video using Pixvana’s Field of View Adaptive Streaming (FOVAS). Optimize playback resolution for Gear VR, Vive, Rift, and Daydream.

Preview experiences in a headset or 360-degree web player, create custom playlists, then export to multiple destinations with one click.

Push content to millions of VR users on Facebook, YouTube, and Steam, or distribute it securely with SPIN Play.

Get secure, reliable playback

SPIN Play makes it easy to share content flexibly with audiences of all sizes.

Open your content to the public or restrict playback to private groups. Share projects with selected team members for quick review.

Cache experiences locally for offline playback. Lock down content in Kiosk mode for location-based VR video in stores, film festivals, museums, and more.

“SPIN Play is a real solution for our clients. We love the ease of setup, and kiosk mode makes it simple and secure to set up experiences in store for our clients.”

Jessica Michaels | Founder, Bread n Butter

“On both commercials and installations, we want to deliver every pixel of detail that our artists have crafted. Pixvana’s streaming solution is an ideal fit for our visual effects-heavy productions,”

Corey Rosen | VP of Creative Marketing, Tippett Studio

“Being able to transport our fans and sponsors into the stadium and behind the scenes with high quality VR video is a transformative way for us to showcase our unique matchday experience,”

Frequently Asked Questions

Pixvana SPIN Studio runs only in the latest version of Google Chrome on MacOS or Windows.

What formats can SPIN Studio accept?

We support .mp4 media files encoded with H.264 AVC and embedded audio. Support is in the works for image sequences in JPG and PNG formats. ProRes movie file processing is on our roadmap.
