Taiwan startup iStaging, a developer of AR and VR technologies, is devoted to developing VR content generation software, utilizing AI to turn 2D patterns into 3D ones and upgrade image auto stitching process, so as to help lower the threshold for the user-generated VR content, according to the firm's chief operating officer YW Fang.

Fang said that her company is promoting sales of the software to enterprise users, especially real estate brokerage houses, helping them break the barrier of communications with clients on space issues through VR technologies.

Fang said that users can use smartphones, fisheye lenses and gyroscope to upload images to the cloud, and VR video content will be automatically generated in the cloud, significantly lowering the entry threshold for content generation and reducing related costs.

Fang continued that the VR content generated with the assistance of AI-based software can reach a high accuracy rate of 98%, which can meet the requirement by most businesses excluding medical care application.

Fang said her company chooses not to focus on content production but on developing software technologies for accelerating content generation, mainly to step up the application and popularity of VR technologies to industries.
