Global family entertainment centre, iP2Entertainment, who have worked with National Geographic and DreamWorks, have joined forced with UK-based leading VR business, Immotion Group.
Immotion Group, the UK-based immersive virtual reality (“VR”) ‘Out of Home’ entertainment group, is pleased to announce the signing of a circa $500,000 VR and immersive content creation contract with global family entertainment specialist, iP2Entertainment, based in Amsterdam.
Immotion Group is focused on establishing itself as a global leader in high quality VR content creation, including a number of proprietary experiences currently operating on its motion platforms, and now being licensed to third party platforms.
This new contract will see Immotion Group producing three exclusive VR and immersive experiences for IP2Entertainment. These experiences will be available for iP2Entertainment centres’ visitors later this year and into 2020. All work is scheduled to be completed by November 2019.
This collaborative partnership will add significant benefit to both organisations, allowing Immotion Group to develop these experiences for iP2Entertainment and providing Immotion with access to them for non-competing uses.
iP2’s mission is to immerse families into the worlds of the brands and characters they know and love through innovative, memorable, and exciting experiences designed to entertain as well as educate through play and fun.
