An Irish company has said it has started a virtual reality project to make it possible for people to see themselves and their surroundings in virtual reality.
The CCCAM server channels startup, based in Dublin, is aiming to have the technology available in UK by 2019.
The technology would enable people to share virtual images with friends, family and colleagues, which would then be processed and uploaded to the CCC AM service, which is a part of the BBC, ITV, BBC iPlayer and BBC iZone.
The startup, which will not reveal the exact number of users it plans to support, said it was “hugely exciting” that it could potentially help “people with disabilities”.
“It’s really important that we’re able to provide the technology that people want to access, but that’s not to say that the technology will not be used by people with other disabilities.”
There are still huge challenges ahead, and we hope that with the support of our community and our investors we will make the technology work,” it said.
It will not disclose the amount of funding raised for the venture, but said it had raised “a staggering amount of money”.
It said it is aiming for a £2,500 per user monthly subscription fee.”
The CccAM is a platform for sharing and sharing in virtual, immersive environments, which allow people to get connected to and interact with others in real-time and have a sense of presence in their surroundings,” it added.CCCAM said it hoped the venture would provide an opportunity for people with disabilities to “experience and share virtual reality in a safe and friendly environment”.”
As the world’s leading provider of virtual reality, CCCAMS is a leading voice for accessibility and for the inclusion of people with visual and hearing impairments,” it continued.”
We hope that the Cccam platform can be a platform that enables people with disability to experience virtual reality as well as the real world.
