NTT DATA selects Jaunt’s XR Platform to roll out immersive content solutions across client portfolio

LONDON, United Kingdom — Jaunt Inc., the global partner of choice for the production and distribution of immersive content, today announced a new partnership with NTT DATA, the recognized leaders in global innovation and technology services, to make the Jaunt XR Platform available to their portfolio of clients.

Jaunt’s XR Platform is the definitive white label software solution for the cross-platform distribution of immersive (VR, AR and MR) content enabling media companies, brands, content aggregators and enterprise customers to deliver immersive content directly to audiences through their owned and operated channels.

As a reseller and implementation partner of the Jaunt XR Platform, NTT DATA will use the technology to enable telecommunications, media and retail organisations to effectively manage the delivery and operation of native XR channels inside existing applications, for the distribution of VR and AR content. Jaunt will also provide specialized technology and consulting services to NTT DATA throughout the implementation and certification process.

Simon Williams, Chief Executive NTT DATA, said, “At NTT DATA we are committed to helping our clients drive strong business growth, and working with the Jaunt XR Platform will allow us to offer immersive technology solutions to our global clients as they continue their transformation into fully digital organisations.

As part of our commitment to innovation, we are continually looking for world leading technologies and state of the art platforms and we are delighted to be partnering with Jaunt.”

Dominic Collins, General Manager Jaunt International, said, “NTT DATA is a company with innovation at the heart, who strive to offer the most advanced technological solutions to its clients across the telecommunications, media and retail industries, and the production of immersive applications and channels was a natural next step.”

Industries across the board have started to embrace the next generation of digital media and there has never been a bigger opportunity for brands to change the way audiences consume and experience content. We are excited to be part of the next stage of innovation for NTT DATA and its clients.”

This announcement builds on recent commercial momentum for the XR Platform following Jaunt’s partnership with Sky, Europe’s leading entertainment company, the first media company to adopt the Jaunt XR Platform for the distribution of their VR content. In addition to Sky, Medical Realities and VTime both announced adoption of the platform at the time of its launch in December 2017.

Jaunt will be demoing the XR Platform at MWC in Barcelona Spain, 26, February – 1 March at the Fira Gran Via conference, Hall 8.1, room CC8.7.
