New York – October 10, 2014 – “Fans will no longer ‘watch’ their favorite teams, they will ‘experience’ the game. It’s as if they were actually at the event,” confirms legendary and eminent N.Y. Coach Jim Boeheim, long time Syracuse U. Coach heading NCAA and Olympic Gold Medal championship teams. The Coach is opening the doors to his personal basketball court to partner with Next Galaxy Corp. in the production of revenue generating virtual reality experiences.
“I believe that the development of Virtual Reality technology by Next Galaxy will soon change the way sports fans enjoy the game.” notes Coach Boeheim.
Next Galaxy believes the superfan, especially those that can’t get to the game, will agree to pay impressive amounts to experience team adventures in VR, dramatically increasing team revenue.
Mary Spio, N.Y. CEO of Next Galaxy Corp. states, “Together, ‘The N.Y. Coach and the N.Y. CEO’, are documenting his game experiences on VR, setting the stage for a genuine revenue generating VR model. We believe once a team owner learns, for example, he can use VR on-court-on-field as a revenue generator —-they will want to know more and more about it. It should become very clear to the owner that VR is offering significant value to even the average fan, especially the ones that are cheering on the sports idols that mean so much to them. Strategic business development discussions with other high-profile sports figures and teams are taking place. VR can turn into a huge revenue generator.”
Next Galaxy Corp. (OTCQB: NXGA) is a leading developer of innovative content solutions and fully immersive Consumer Virtual Reality technology. The Company’s flagship consumer product in development is CEEK, a next-generation fully immersive entertainment and social virtual reality platform featuring a combination of live, virtual and augmented events and experiences.
The audio for the experience will be created using omnidirectional sound customized for listening through Ceekars™, Next Galaxy’s first-in-class VR audio headset.
