London, UK – July 14, 2022 – VRJAM, a leading multiverse platform for live entertainment, has announced its closed beta launch following 4 years in development.
VRJAM’s live experience platform offers a rich ‘triple A game’ quality user experience, providing a high quality alternative to the other solutions that currently populate the metaverse industry space.
The closed beta platform goes live from Thursday 14th of July, and will be made available to a community of invited users and guests.
Available as both a PC desktop game experience and in VR using the Meta Quest VR headset, the closed beta will offer an array of live events, music performances and immersive experiences happening every week.
The virtual world within which user experiences exist is called ‘5th Dimension’, a fascinating, music and entertainment flavored game world that offers gamers and music fans alike a rich array of experiences that will redefine the convergence between blockchain and virtual reality.
The 5th Dimension game world is built on a novel server solution developed and designed by VRJAM. It enables data transfer at near real time that is used to manage the operation of its software on remote devices enabling a massively scalable solution for content distribution at sub second latency.
The 5th Dimension will unveil a line up of events soon that will not only include live music and DJ performances but also educational and informative sessions, with leaders and visionaries from the world of tech and crypto, and also members of the VRJAM creative and tech teams. VRJAM is created to not only provide immersive live entertainment but also help further proliferate the understanding of Web3 and its full scope and potential for individuals and businesses globally.
