Combine XR Videos With Spatial Audio, Artwork, and More
Video in any shape or form is one of the driving forces behind a lot of successful VR/AR apps. Leading XR video producers leverage the power of Headjack to distribute their video content to a worldwide audience without having to ever sacrifice on image quality.
With our powerful toolset, you can effortlessly transcode, manage, update, and deliver your videos to a variety of XR devices.
Content and App Management
Organize, structure, and update your app content on the fly through an easy-to-use web interface
Automated Video Transcoding
with our dedicated transcoding profiles, your videos are distributed at an optimized resolution for your target XR device.
Update Your App Content In Real-Time
Update the CMS with some fresh content, hit save, and restart your app; it's that simple!
Add, remove, and modify the content of your XR application directly from your Headjack account, no need to rebuild your app or send an update to the app store.
360°, 180° or a custom FOV
We have support for most popular immersive video formats, and if you're using something exotic, set your custom FOV directly from the platform.
Mono and Stereoscopic support
Videos can be played back in both monoscopic or stereoscopic 3D over/under or side-by-side layout.
Add user-selectable subtitles in multiple languages to increase the reach of your content.
Directly add HLS URLs of a live stream or a VOD stream to your apps.
Standard video formats coming soon
Looking to add some regular video formats to your app? We have support for all standard video aspect ratios like 16x9, 1x1, or 4x3, for example.
The Two Big Ears TBE format is an 8+2 channels format employed by Facebook's Spatial Workstation, and it can be uploaded independently from the video for fast iteration cycles.
Audio format typically used during post-production and an option for streaming purposes.
Include a normal stereo track in to your 360 video files
Images and Metadata
No UI/UX is complete without beautiful artwork; that is why we added support for both .png and .jpeg image formats.
App Icons and Splash Images
first impressions matter; that is why you can always set custom/branded app icons and splash screens to all of your white label apps.
Titles and Descriptions
Give background information on your videos and make your videos easy to find.

Collaborate with your entire production team
One person doesn't produce exceptional video content. That is why you can invite your video editor, art designer, audio engineer, and your client all to the same Headjack account for frictionless collaboration.
