A delegation of VIP guests travelling between Japan, India and Sri Lanka from 21 to 27 January on Japan Airlines had the opportunity to test SkyLights’ Cinematic VR Entertainment.
The airline selected SkyLight’s solution to demonstrate innovation and gauge the potential of virtual reality as in-flight entertainment.
Through the SkyLights headsets, the 50 VIP passengers were given the opportunity to choose from over 30 titles, including 180°/360° VR videos, 3D and 2D feature films and documentaries.
“We are delighted to take our first real step into the Asian market with an innovative airline of world-class standard. JAL have made a vote of confidence in our solution and we are honoured to have been able to work with them to introduce a new type of experience to their premium passengers,” said David Dicko, SkyLights CEO.
JAL sales VP said, “Customers who experienced the VR videos praised the content and we did not have any problems such as VR sickness. I’m very happy to have made the project successful and I would like to thank SkyLights for their cooperation.”
SkyLights is now focusing on global expansion with its Allosky headset. With 2K resolution and weighing only 135g, the headset has already generated significant interest throughout the industry, with its first commercial deployments scheduled for late March.
