Igloo Vision just launched the Igloo Immersive Media Player (IMP), a product that enables an organization to transform any room or office space into an immersive workspace. This packages all of Igloo’s Shared VR technology into a stand-alone unit and is designed for customers who want to use Igloo’s core technology to create their own shared immersive spaces without the limitations of traditional audiovisual media servers.
The Igloo Immersive Media Player puts users in full control of a layer-based visualization system. Unlike traditional AV media servers, the Igloo Immersive Media Player is flexible, easy-to-use and all-in-one. It is a single unit with intuitive interfaces, designed for use by anyone who can operate a computer or smartphone.
While a traditional media server is usually designed for a single function such as the delivery of linear AV events, the Igloo Immersive Media Player is designed as an everyday tool for users. It comes with a library of integrated apps, such as Office 365, Microsoft Teams, Salesforce, Unity, Unreal, Zoom, G Suite, Adobe, YouTube and the Igloo software suite.
With its layer-based system, users can work with different types of content, in different formats, from different sources, all at the same time. They can be switched between or viewed at once in multiple panels. The Igloo Immersive Media Player takes any content, in any format, from any source to any display technology. It is compatible with all display technologies, including LED screens, flat panels, laser, lamp and 3D projectors, and has in-built blending and warping of projector outputs. And anyone can learn how to use it, without requiring an AV technician.
The Igloo Immersive Media Player is available in four levels to suit the power needs of users. Its most powerful configuration is equipped with Dual RTX 8000 GPUs and supports 4K inputs and outputs to 5x4K. The Igloo Immersive Media Player provides playback at HD and 4K and is suitable for immersive storytelling, 360-degree films, room-scale presentations, immersive workspaces, training and simulation facilities, data visualization suites, control rooms, research & development and experience centers.
