“With the large and ever increasing number of different headsets on the market, we wanted to find the most efficient solution for the vast majority of Mistika users. This is why we have decided to integrate support for the DeoVR player, enabling video preview in practically any VR headset and on additional platforms, such as tablets, mobile phones or laptops,” explained Roman Dudek, Mistika VR Product Manager at SGO.

“This functionality is currently in the Open Beta phase and we want to invite the global VR community to provide us with their feedback. We would also like to thank our friends from DeoVR for their continued support and we truly hope that this new feature will enrich our users’ experience and significantly speed up their workflow.”

Ivan Varko, DeoVR creator said that building the bridge between DeoVR player and Mistika VR means further empowering the VR creative community. “You can now watch and share VR videos before rendering them. Then upload the content on DeoVR.com to make it stream on every VR headset. We are closer than ever for VR to become the preferred medium to share stories. Simply record, edit, render, upload and enjoy VR with Deo and Mistika.”
