Why we expect AR/VR/MR—and this company in particular—to take off faster than Elon Musk’s and SpaceX’s Crew Dragon

Article | March 13, 2020

First, let’s state the obvious: the augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR) industry—often referred to as “XR” or extended reality—has been on a tear since long before the spread of the coronavirus, hitting new high notes in late 2019 and early 2020. The installed base of ARCore-compatible Android devices, for example, grew from 250 million devices in December 2018 to 400 million in May 2019. Meanwhile, 2017 heralded the Cambrian explosion of the AR world, with the introduction of easy-to-use software development kits from both Apple (called ARKit) and Google (called ARCore).

Why Losing Activision and Bethesda Is a Major Blow to NVIDIA's Streaming Ambitions

Article | March 13, 2020

How did this happen? To understand, you need to know how NVIDIA's video-game streaming service works. Video game fans are used to console and PC gaming where games are usually purchased once and then played on specific hardware: Xbox games for Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT) Xbox, PlayStation games for Sony's (NYSE: SNE) PlayStation, and PC games on (of course) a PC. To play on a different type of machine, customers usually have to purchase the game again. This model informed Stadia's cloud gaming economy, which requires customers to purchase games if they want to play them on Stadia.

Article | March 13, 2020

The much-anticipated rollout of 5G technology is expected to completely change the way we play on our phones and it will likely be a huge boost for the entire gaming industry as well. In a recently published study by Paysafe, the company argues that the rollout of the updated mobile data service will have a “profound” impact on mobile gaming, including sports betting—which is an industry that has really taken off in the recent years and has actually become a substantial part of the gambling industry. Paysafe is the payment service behind famous online transactions brands like Skrill, Neteller, and Paysafecard, all of which are used on almost all websites that offer these types of transactions

FILM PRODUCERS FLIP BARGAINING TABLE WITH UNIONIZING EFFORT

Article | March 13, 2020

Movie producers often find themselves negotiating with talent and crew members, and/or their production union representatives, over pay and benefits. But a group of 108 producers flipped the script Thursday in announcing they were looking to form a union of their own.Higher minimum pay and health benefits were cited as the two major reasons. While the group, called the Producers Union, boasts some heavy hitters such as Chris Moore (Manchester by the Sea) and Rebecca Green (It Follows), they made it clear that the traditional image of a Hollywood producer is misleading. Many are just getting by, project to project, looking for a breakout hit to up their quote. According to a survey released this year, 41% of producers made less than $25,000 in the pre-pandemic boom times of 2019. The Producers Union has developed a constitution with provisions for dues and diversity initiatives, with the aim of eventually negotiating a collective bargaining agreement with distributors and other film financiers. Previous efforts by producers to unionize have been thwarted by the courts and the National Labor Relations Board, according to Variety, as the NLRB saw them as supervisors and employers – which creates a high barrier to organizing.
