Vancouver, BC – February 7, 2019 – Blueprint Reality Inc. (Blueprint), the creators of the MixCast VR Marketing System, a virtual reality broadcasting platform, today announced a partnership agreement with SpringboardVR, the leading station management platform for location-based VR. The two companies plan to add a whole new dimension to the VR arcade experience – now, game players can easily share the magical experiences they encounter inside their favorite VR games via their social media networks!

 

MixCast VR Photobooth, a component of the MixCast VR Marketing System, allows VR game players to create fun memories by capturing pictures and video of their real-life selves inside their favorite VR gaming experiences. The MixCast VR Marketing System can be used to distribute these mixed reality “Pics & Clips” which can then be shared with social communities on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. Not only does MixCast allow VR arcade operators to leverage the power of social media to create awareness for their venues and the games they make available, but it can also help explain what VR is to potential customers.

 

“Working with Blueprint Reality to bring MixCast to our VR arcade operators is going to give them an additional revenue stream from sales of mixed reality media and provide additional promotion and awareness for their facility” said SpringboardVR CEO, Brad Scoggin. “These are some of the biggest challenges our operators face – generating awareness and increasing revenue – and we’re excited to be able to offer them a new way to do both.”

 

“We’re excited to partner with SpringboardVR and bring MixCast to SpringboardVR arcade operators around the world.” said Tarrnie Williams, Blueprint CEO. “We know that marketing VR can be a tough prospect, and we’re pleased to offer operators a great solution.”
