Press Release • Paris • April 6, 2016

The Paris based startup CINEMUR annonces today the launch of its own virtual reality studio called “CINEMVR” focused on cinema, video and mobile technologies. On this occasion, the team has published today a first beta version of a new VR application for Oculus Rift and Samsung GearVR in which you’ll soon be able to watch movies and series with friends in a theater-like experience.

This is the kind of projects the team has always enjoyed since the company very first days: create innovative user experiences at the crossroads of technology and design.

“Innovative user experiences to discover & watch movies.”

CINEMVR studio will focus on developing proprietary new technologies for VR and will create new innovative experiments for itself or its customers in France and worldwide.
