High Fidelity

High Fidelity provides a social virtual reality platform for users to create and deploy virtual worlds, and explore and interact together in them. The software is free and open source, and it supports the Oculus Rift (DK2 and CV1), including Oculus Touch controllers, and the HTC Vive, including HTC Vive Trackers.[5] On April 27, 2016, High Fidelity entered open beta.[6] In 2017 High Fidelity started offering original programming to players. HiFi has the first network ordered VR show titled Glitched: A VR Talk Show from Studio Capon and followed up with a weekly streamed dance party series with in VR DJ Tha Phlash... High Fidelity was founded in April 2013 by Second Life founder and former CEO Philip Rosedale, and Freidrica Heiberger... Plans for gatherings on the High Fidelity platform to use virtual reality were scrapped by the beginning of 2019, and the platform became audio-only. Users appear as dots in a birds-eye view of a space, and can move their dots around the space to have conversations with individuals or groups. Audio is spatialized (spatial audio), so that users will hear other users at different volumes depending on their relative locations within the space... In May 2019, High Fidelity announced it would focus its efforts on an application for remote and distributed teams.[29] The yet-to-be-named application, accessible through both desktop mode[30] and VR,[31] provides a virtual space where people can collaborate using High Fidelity's spatialized 3D audio and realistic avatars. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Fidelity_(company)
