Pixvana’s cloud platform SPIN Studio is an end-to-end solution for authoring and delivering virtual, augmented, and mixed reality video content. It integrates with leading XR platforms including the recently released Windows Mixed Reality platform. Pixvana today announced its Series A funding of $14 million led by Vulcan Capital with participation from Microsoft Venture and others.

Pixvana’s mission is to enable anyone to create and distribute next-generation video experiences. SPIN Studio, Pixvana’s cloud-based storytelling platform, uniquely accelerates the production and delivery of interactive XR content at 8K resolution.

“Pixvana’s tools help others create immersive, next-generation video experiences for work and play,” said Lisa Nelson, Managing Director, Microsoft Ventures. “We look forward to supporting Pixvana as they help usher in the next big platform shift to mixed reality.”

“We are thrilled to work with this amazing group of investors backing us, to realize our vision of XR storytelling,” said Forest Key, Pixvana CEO. “Faster iteration and blending of video and 3D content will allow creatives, brands and media companies to create amazing XR experiences.
