Vimmerse end-to-end APIs, SDKs, and apps

Vimmerse offers APIs, SDKs, and apps supporting a full end-to-end solution for 3D immersive video capture, content preparation, streaming, and playback.  Developers can integrate Vimmerse SDKs & APIs into their own branded solution.

We utilize the new MPEG Immersive Video (MIV) standard (https://mpeg-miv.org/), which represents full scenes captured by one or more cameras + depth sensors and is not limited to isolated individual people. Existing video codecs (H.264, HEVC, …) and streaming protocols (HLS) are used in Vimmerse’s solution, for easy integration into existing video delivery systems.

Vimmerse offers multi-platform support, with a wide variety of capture and playback devices, including third party capture solutions.

Vimmerse 3D video capture apps and SDKs

Capture 3D video using the Vimmerse capture apps or integrate the Vimmerse capture SDK in your own app. Simplify content creation with direct uploading of captured video to the Vimmerse Freeport cloud platform.

iOS 

The iOS Vimmerse 3D capture app for iPhone 12+ Pro/ProMax captures 3D video using the built-in LiDAR sensor and ARKit.
