VANCOUVER, BC – WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2019 – Blueprint Reality Inc. (Blueprint), the creators of the MixCast VR Marketing System, a virtual reality broadcasting platform, today announced that MixCast has been integrated into the world’s most popular station management platforms for location-based VR. SpringboardVR and Synthesis VR have both integrated MixCast into their platforms so arcade operators using their systems and the developers of VR content alike can now benefit from the mixed reality capabilities of MixCast.

 

MixCast VR Photobooth, a component of the MixCast VR Marketing System, allows VR game players to create fun memories by capturing pictures and videos of their real-life selves inside their favorite VR gaming experiences and share them with their social communities on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.

 

Incorporating MixCast into the SpringboardVR and Synthesis VR platforms will bring a much-needed social element to the VR arcade experience and allow game players to easily share their VR experiences with friends and family via their social media networks. Additionally, VR developers and arcade operators will share in the revenue generated via sales of MixCast pictures and videos.

 

“We’re excited to be working with both SpringboardVR and Synthesis VR, the biggest and best location-based VR platforms, as it validates how beneficial mixed reality is to a compelling VR experience.” said Tarrnie Williams, Blueprint CEO. “People want to get a better sense of what an immersive experience will be like, which MixCast provides, and they want to share those cool experiences with others.”

 

Blueprint, SpringboardVR and Synthesis VR are committed to working together to grow the location-based VR market and create a healthy ecosystem for VR developers and VR arcade operators.

 

For developers of VR content, MixCast can create greater awareness of their experiences to customers of location-based VR venues and better promote their games by showing real people immersed in their experiences. For VR arcade operators, MixCast offers incremental revenue opportunities, as well as the additional exposure and awareness generated by their customers sharing their experiences on social media.

Developers can receive a share of the revenue generated via sales of MixCast pictures and videos featuring their games, providing a boost to their arcade channel revenue. In order to participate in the revenue-share plan, developers must integrate the MixCast SDK into their games so any pictures or videos created and sold can be accurately tracked. The MixCast SDK is available for free for VR experiences built in Unity and Unreal engines.
