About Us

AmbrosiaXR was born from legendary cinematic VR studio DeepVR (est. 2014) and multi award-winning experiential marketing agency Ambrosia (est. 2010). The purpose was to expand offerings to a wider variety of immersive technologies. We specialise in the development of immersive experiences from virtual reality, high production value 360 video, live streaming in 360, social VR for virtual events and augmented reality.

As a proudly South African company, our mission is to expand horizons using immersive technology. We are an industry-agnostic production studio; we use our creative & technical expertise to disrupt various industries as demonstrated by the variety and quality of our client list below.

Our Offerings

Below is a breakdown of the types of immersive technologies we specialise in.

360 video


360 degree video, also known as cinematic VR, involves the filming of real people and environments using specialised 360 degree cameras. We use the highest quality gear including the Insta360 Titan and the Kandao Obsidian R. This experience immerses a viewer in a very lifelike environment and story, but limits the amount of interactivity possible.

Interactive VR


This form differs to cinematic VR in that the environment is CGI (computer generated imagery), and therefore allows a user to move in the virtual environment. This is done either by physically moving in the real world (which is called "roomscale"), or using a controller to move, similar to a computer game. Controllers also add a degree of interactivity, allowing point-and-click functionality and the ability to pick up virtual objects. We offer Unity & Unreal rendered VR experiences for VR training.

Volumetric VR


The newest of the virtual reality environment types, volumetric VR is also known as videogrammetry. This discipline originates with photogrammetry, the process of digitising the real world to create a hyper-realistic virtual environment that the user can experience while walking around physically to translate


360 Degree Live Streaming & Social VR

Coronavirus has disrupted our social world. We know that events and social gatherings will be limited for many months. However, two virtual technologies will play a major role in preserving our ability to experience events and socialising, and we are industry-leaders in both:

live streaming 360


360 degree video uses special omnidirectional cameras to film an entire environment, keynote presentation, concert or sports event. We use the Insta360 Titan, the industry's gold standard of live streaming cameras. Focusing on professional broadcast-level 360 degree live streaming, we can stream up to 8K in resolution. This feed can be played on YouTube 360, Facebook 360, webVR, dome projections and directly to VR headsets, of which we own an entire rental pool, ready to be sent out directly to participating audience members across South Africa.

We can provide a full dedicated broadband satellite uplink solution, with the ability to mix multiple feeds, live edit, and place graphics in the live 360 stream. Get in touch with us to find out more.

Social VR


Social VR preserves all the things that are important about interacting with other people in real-time. In this virtual environment, each user experiences a sense of presence at virtual social gatherings which can be made specifically for our clients. This is ideal for networking events, keynotes and presentations, award ceremonies, corporate events, expos and exhibitions, film festivals including screenings as well as classroom-based teaching and learning. We work alongside multiple platforms including Altspace VR and Engage to create custom rooms. Some platforms also allow participants to engage from desktop PCs instead of VR headsets, though the true experience comes from feeling like you're really face-to-face with another person. To this end, our large rental pool of VR headsets can be sterilised and shipped out to delegates/participants.

Think of us as your virtual event production partners. From ticketing to guest relations in the VR space, we know this world and we can help bring you into it.
