This partnership provides a direct path for us into the emerging metaverse through the ongoing evolution of AR & MR technology. This close relationship with Nreal will allow us to stay at the cutting edge of where we anticipate entertainment technology to be in the very near future. We have every confidence that our viewers will embrace these new immersive experiences while Cinedigm continues to focus on expanding the video viewing experience via this rapidly evolving technology.”
