NEW Hyper-realistic lighting update in environments

Hey all!

Bigscreen’s environments are getting a major refresh. Today’s update improves visual fidelity & immersion while simultaneously improving performance.

The Home Theater, Grand Theater, and Big Campfire have new dynamic lighting from the screen that looks hyper realistic, similar to our Big Cinema environment from 2017’s “Cinema Update”. This is a significant improvement to the visual fidelity and immersion of our larger theater environments.

Note how the colorful light from the screen shines on the environment, and how the environment goes dark if the screen is dark. People have been asking for this feature for a long time, and we’re excited to launch it.

Our primary focus in this update was performance. For example, we have reduced CPU render time of the Home Theater environment by more than 10X.

This performance pass was necessary in order to port Bigscreen to mobile VR devices like the Samsung Gear VR and Oculus Go. In case you missed last week’s announcement, we have started Alpha Testing on mobile VR headsets. You can sign up here.

Free VR movie night in Bigscreen: STARGATE ORIGINS

Hey everyone!

We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with MGM Studios to show STARGATE ORIGINS in Bigscreen. This week, people can watch the first 2 episodes of Stargate Origins, bonus content, and trailers, for free in Bigscreen with your friends.

Showtimes begin every 30 minutes starting at 6PM Eastern on Thursday March 8, until 3AM Eastern on Sunday March 11.

When we hosted TOP GUN 3D in December, which was only available in the United States, many of you asked us to do movie nights in more international countries. We listened to you, and tried very hard to secure international movie distribution deals.

This event is free and will be available to people in the United States & territories, United Kingdom & territories, Canada, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand.

No ticket or sign-up is required. To attend this event, grab your VR headset and download Bigscreen.

Watch our trailer:
