MelodyVR launches on Oculus Quest

 

EVR Holdings plc (AIM:EVRH), the leading creator of virtual reality entertainment content and operator of the MelodyVR platform, is pleased to announce that, further to the Company's announcement of 23 January 2019, MelodyVR will launch on Oculus Quest on Thursday 22nd August 2019. 

 

The Oculus Quest is a completely wireless virtual reality ("VR") headset, which can track your movements in any direction without the need for external sensors or a connected PC. The $400 all-in-one VR device started shipping in May and is reported to be Oculus' fastest selling device to date. The MelodyVR proposition for Oculus Quest will mirror that of the currently available app on Oculus Go, allowing consumers to access the full library of MelodyVR experiences.

 

As part of Facebook's most recent quarterly earnings call Mark Zukerberg, CEO of Facebook, Inc, said:

 

"This quarter, we shipped Oculus Quest, our first all-in-one headset with no wires and full freedom of movement. It has gotten great reviews and we're selling them as fast as we can make them. More importantly, we've delivered an experience that people keep using week after week, and buying more content."

"The reason augmented and VR deliver a qualitatively better experience than traditional computing platforms is that they deliver the feeling of presence - that you're actually there with another person or in another place. Even if it has taken longer than we expected to deliver this at scale, I continue to believe that this will be one of the most important contributions we make to the way we all use technology over the long term."

Anthony Matchett, CEO of EVR Holdings, said: "We are excited to make MelodyVR available to a wider audience on Oculus Quest, and by Mark's continued ambition to make standalone VR mainstream and a self-sustaining industry. I look forward to continuing to work closely with Oculus throughout 2019 and we appreciate their partnership and support."
