Virtual Reality has grown unexpectedly during the past few years unraveling a highly immersive world to the users. Continuing its leadership in creating amazing VR experiences, Intel has collaborated with Sony Pictures Virtual Reality. This collaboration aims to render a virtual reality experience (VRE) that complements Columbia Pictures upcoming “Spider-Man: Homecoming” movie. This is the most highly anticipated movie of the summer, arriving in theaters on July 7.
The VRE would allow users to avail the chance of suiting up as Spider-Man, honing their web-shooting skills, and sling high above New York City in pursuit of the Vulture, just like the Spiderman. Equipped with Intel hardware technology and software tools, the award-winning developers at CreateVR have made use of dual Intel Xeon processor-based Dell workstations to create and render 360-degree, ultra-high-resolution graphics of New York.

The premium version of the superhero flick has been enhanced with the performance of the instruction architecture of the latest Intel Core processors for ultra-high resolution content streaming, encoding, and video playback. Moreover, the Intel Graphics Performance Analyzers were used for better visual fidelity, higher-resolution, and higher frame rates.
Moving on, Intel Threading Building Blocks have helped developers leverage Intel multi-core performance and heterogeneous computing. The developers used a variety of Intel-optimized software, including Adobe*, Allegorithmic*, Autodesk*, Epic Games*, Mettle*, Pixlogic* and The Foundry* for authoring, digital sculpting, rendering, and production, to deliver amazing performance and realism in the VR experience.
The VRE is available in select Cinemark locations across the U.S. and at special events worldwide. The availability will extend across all major VR platforms, including PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift* on June 30, for free.
