Wonda VR Studio:
Wonda VR Studio gives you access to a palette of editing features dedicated to 360° VR Video experience: the medialibrary, the storyboard, a sequence editor and productivity tools like automatic autosaves, collaborative work with Google Drive or Dropbox.
Wonda VR Studio is available on desktop for Mac and PC and works with Wonda companion web player and mobile apps for instant preview of your project with your Gear VR or Cardboard VR headset.
Wonda VR Cloud:
With one click, your project edited in the studio is synchronized on Wonda VR server, your videos are automatically transcoded in HLS and streamed through mobile apps and online web player.
Your contents are hosted on a secure and robust cloud, and available in the best conditions all over the world via Amazon Web Services CDN (Cloudfront).
Wonda VR Web Player:
Since 1.7 version, we introduced a new Web Player hosted on our Cloud so you’re sure your project is always seen in the best condition depending on the user internet connexion and the device used.
For the time being, the web player is only meant to be used in 360° mode. No VR headset can be used.
The Web Player is compatible with recent versions of web browsers that support the WebGL API and in particular the texImage2D method. This includes the recent versions of the following browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Edge.
We recommend using the latest Desktop versions of Chrome or Firefox.
For non supported desktop browsers, the web player will display a message that asks to use a recent version of Chrome or Firefox.
NB1: The Web Player is dependant on the browser support for WebGL. For instance, a browser may disable WebGL on some blacklisted graphic cards.
NB2: The performance of the Web Player is highly dependant on the graphic capabilities of the device.
NB3: Note that the web player is only supported on desktop. If your users open Wonda VR project on mobile web browser, they will be automatically redirected to the Wonda VR mobile app.
Wonda VR Mobile Apps:
Wonda VR comes with native mobile Apps optimized for both Android, Oculus Mobile and iOS platforms. It’s now an all-in-one place to not only preview and share your own experience but also discover creations from other Wonda VR users.
You will be able to access your experiences either in “Magic Window” mode (by moving and tilting your phone to explore a 360° video) or Side-by-Side view (users can view the experience in a VR headset such as Google Cardboard).
If you have a Samsung Gear VR compatible phone, you can install a native Gear VR app “extension” of the Wonda VR app for Android. It allows you to preview your project using your Gear VR headset.
