Description

Bundled with OTOY’s ORBX Media Player, the ORBX Media Server enables human-sized avatar scanning, creating a live representation of yourself in a VR experience that mirrors your actions in the real world, and will allow you to interact with others in the same room or over the Internet. ORBX Media Server integrates data from position tracking systems such as Valve’s Lighthouse and Microsoft Kinect cameras to untethered mobile VR devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Gear VR, while streaming VR experiences such as 18K stereo cube map videos from a PC server to the Gear VR over Wi-Fi. The avatar scanning can be combined with other technologies such as LightStage face scans and CG bodies or avatars saved in the ORBX file format to produce evermore realistic representations of users inside of VR applications. The prototype shown at SIGGRAPH 2015 uses the depth information from a Microsoft Kinect V2 camera to scan users over top of the NeoS: The Universe application from the Oculus Mobile VR Jam 2015, made by Tomas Mariancik, Louis Arrigoni, Sian Rhodes, and Matej Hora. OTOY is working to support other scanning technologies in the future.
