XR Unity SDK
A CMS For All Your Unity Video Apps
The Unity game engine is excellent for developing games, but less for apps that need continuous updates of content since they always require app updates. By hooking up the Headjack CMS to your Unity project, you can always push fresh videos to your app in real-time.
XR Unity SDK Features

With our suite of integration development tools, it's now super easy to hook up the Headjack CMS to the widely popular Unity Game Engine. Headjack can serve as your rock-solid back end for more complex or custom video apps. On top of that, you don't need to worry about SDK integrations or video playback since we already laid the groundwork for you as a developer.
