Virtual Pictures Corp (VPiX®), the first Virtual Reality company to deliver a suite of AR, VR and MR content-creation servers, announced today they were chosen to receive the prestigious Entrepreneur 360 Award for 2017. VPiX is ranked 238 out of 360 on the Entrepreneur magazine’s list of “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America.”
“I’m completely blown away,” says Bart Wilson, founder and CIO of VPiX. “I thought this kind of recognition was reserved for larger firms like Apple, Oculus or Magic Leap. We’re just a small team doing what we love. I’m humbled to accept this award on behalf of the entire VPiX team; Sridhar, John, Anthony, Tanya, Jon, Arwin, Nathan and Rachelle. We have an incredible VR dream team that runs like a well-oiled machine.”
A little over 1.3 million VPiX virtual tours are created and hosted on Rackspace and Akamai by VPiX rock star photographers like Jason Sievert of Invision Studio and Knut Gasvik of Chili Group — a VPiX affiliate office and one of the country’s leading advertising agencies based in Harstad, Norway.
In January 2010, VPiX launched the world’s first 360°/SaaS and hosting platform the next after day Steve Jobs introduced the 1st generation iPad.
Seven years later, VPiX offers dedicated and customized 360° servers with a managed service level that power millions of end-user virtual experiences for Balfour Beatty, Budweiser, Century 21, Choice Hotels, Carnival Cruise Lines, ExecuJet, Honda, Homeland Security, Keller Williams, RideTime, Rolls Royce, Trump Realty, UC Riverside and the US Army.
