ViaVR: Helping a VR startup develop a video content management system
The team, which consisted of Evrone developers and ViaVR's own specialists, developed a backend using Python 3.8, PostgreSQL, SQLAlchemy, and the Falcon web framework.
When they approached Evrone, ViaVR had already begun to capitalize on the advantages of virtual reality in the hospitality industry. But in order to continue expanding their services, they needed help developing better video CMS software and tools for managing VR devices.
While there are many different business applications of virtual reality, ViaVR's focus has been on the hospitality industry. Pico G2 4k VR helmets are placed in the rooms of the service's partner hotels. After turning on the helmet, the user can see several sections with movies, games, 18+ content, and information about the hotel and restaurants inside, including virtual hotel tours. All entertainment content is paid, and the user can open access to it for a specific length of time, during which they can freely switch between sections.
The project has been successfully operating on the new monolith since the spring of 2021, several international hotel chains are partners of the service, and thousands of end users have used the rental services. This proves the benefits of virtual reality in business and reveals that the use of VR technology for business is becoming a competitive advantage. On the technical side, everything works stably, but with a projected increase in the load as hospitality industry trends continue to change and more businesses adopt virtual hospitality, the client does not exclude the possibility of switching to microservices.
