January 12, 2023 – Brelyon, an MIT spin-off that has invented a headset-free virtual display technology for gaming and enterprise applications, has this week announced that it is partnering with Velocity Esports, a provider of venues for gamers and esports enthusiasts, to bring Brelyon’s Ultra Reality displays to Velocity locations. The first location to receive the Breylon devices will be at Velocity’s location in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Brelyon’s Ultra Reality device provides a new type of ultra-immersive display technology that makes it possible to game on a massive 120-inch plus curved display. The company stated that its Ultra Reality immersive displays are well suited for gaming and esports enthusiasts, as they provide a “larger-than-life” esports and immersive gaming experience through a holodeck-style panoramic form factor. Plus, the displays are backward-compatible with existing games and content, according to Breylon.
“With Brelyon, Ultra Reality builds a bridge between content that gamers love and high-fidelity immersive experiences they covet,” said Len Wanger, President of Velocity Esports. “We founded Velocity with a vision to create an entirely new kind of gaming and entertainment venue and platform — what we call a 360-degree gaming experience — that merges the in-venue and online gaming for users. We are constantly investing in adding new gaming innovations that better serve the Velocity community, and our partnership with Brelyon furthers our brand promise of delivering Great Games, Great Experience, Great Community.”
Also commenting on the partnership, Barmak Heshmat, CEO of Brelyon, said: “With Brelyon, a pristine image fills up the viewer’s peripheral vision, creating an awe-inspiring experience that is perfect for large-format gaming, esports and entertainment.” Heshmat added, “Velocity has a focus on creating a new kind of immersive gaming experience for users that centers around the concept that people love to play games and to do so socially, and that esports offers engaging experiences that transcend place. We share that vision and we’re delighted to partner with Velocity to bring next-level entertainment experiences to Velocity gamers.”
Expanding nationwide, Velocity locations feature state-of-the-art esports lounges with the latest technology and professional level gaming chairs, a vast selection of arcade games, prizes, and over 100 titles for esports and PC and console gaming. The Nevada location is located near the Las Vegas strip at Town Square Mall.
