Positron announced at the Sundance Film Festival that it has closed a $1.4 million seed funding round to continue developing the next generation of Voyager™, its flagship VR exhibition and distribution platform.

As a 2018 official provider of Sundance Institute®, Positron’s Voyager™ VR chair platform was used exclusively at Sundance 2018 to debut the world premiere of “Space Explorers: A New Dawn,” a new VR experience from Felix & Paul Studios, made in collaboration with NASA. The prototype of Voyager premiered at Sundance, 2017, and it went on to become the platform used by Universal Pictures and IMAX for “The Mummy Zero Gravity Stunt VR Experience” with Tom Cruise.

According to the company, chairs equipped with Voyager VR will be arriving in cinemas, VR centers, hotels, museums and airports later this year as part of the launch of the Voyager Network, an out-of-home distribution network for premium VR.
