Bigscreen is the developer of a VR platform that allows users to watch movies, play games, and collaborate with friends in VR. It offers a range of environments for movie-watching such as a drive-in theater, modern cinema, and a 1980s cinema, with support for the Bigscreen Beyond, Valve Index, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. Users can also watch streaming services like YouTube, Disney+, and Twitch and use their Windows PC in VR with remote desktop sharing. In addition to entertainment activities, users can use a virtual monitor to collaborate on work projects in VR. Bigscreen is free on Steam and Meta Quest with cross-platform support, having had over 6 million downloads as of March 2023.

The company also developed a PC-only VR headset titled “Beyond,” retailing at USD 999, which shipped from December 2023 onwards. The headset features dual OLED microdisplays with 2,560 x 2,560 per-eye resolution with 32 pixels per degree, an FOV of 102 degrees, pancake optics with a refresh rate up to 90Hz, 6DOF SteamVR tracking support, and support for VR games on Steam. Bigscreen’s headset is roughly 4x lighter than other VR headsets on the market, given that users are given a custom IPD-adjusted headset based on a user’s 3D face scan on an Apple mobile device. Furthermore, users can request prescription lenses to be added to the headset for USD 79, alongside an audio strap for USD 99. The headset, however, does not come with controllers required for use; they need to be purchased separately.

Key customers and partnerships

Partnerships with entertainment companies include that with Funimation (to bring a range of anime series to the company’s VR platform in May 2020) and Paramount Pictures (to distribute 2D and 3D films through the company’s VR platform in December 2019).
