Thank you for your interest in joining The Immersive Technology Alliance. Both non-profit and non-proprietary, our whole reason for being is to make immersive technology successful. We measure success with the adoption of immersive technologies, customer satisfaction, and ultimately the sales of immersive content. We represent the interests of content makers, hardware makers, and technology enablers in the areas of AR, VR, stereoscopic 3D, and everything in-between.
A “Content Member” is defined as:
- Creator of immersive entertainment (e.g. movies, video games, experiences).
- Game engine creators.
- Approved consultants that DO NOT create software tools or technology.
- Hybrid companies that create content, technology and software tools are in the “General Member” classification.
Why content makers should join The Immersive Technology Alliance:
- Play a part in setting the standard(s) and/or expectations for immersive content development.
- Get connected with industry leaders.
- The industry will back you! Where possible and appropriate, alliance members will promote your content as part of their sales efforts.
- The ITA will help ensure content compatibility with leading immersive technology and software.
- The alliance is there to promote your content compatibility industry-wide. We have no proprietary interests, and we are a non-profit organization.
- Reach immersive technology consumers and start selling products TODAY.
- Benefit from industry leverage, and have a voice that will be heard and recognized.
- Where possible, get valuable coverage at media-centric events.
The Immersive Technology Alliance offers very inexpensive membership options for both professionals and formalized content making ventures and companies. In the case of qualified content making companies, they can get their first year of membership for free, or invest up to a maximum of $10,000 in annual fees for additional voting and promotional benefits. There is no barrier of entry for being informed, up to date, and compatible with a wide range of immersive technology hardware both current and forthcoming.
Here is a brief summary of the key points and sections most applicable to content makers:
- All qualified members, including content makers, have a single organizational vote on matters of standard and position. Voting rights require a modest paid membership status.
- While encouraged, participating content makers are NOT required to be compatible with available immersive technologies.
- All members retain ownership of their IP, and non-disclosure clauses are in place to protect sensitive information shared by your company and fellow members.
- Participating with the alliance will not infringe on any proprietary business relationships and branding.
- Depending on membership level, alliance participants can also benefit from complimentary advertising on mtbs3D.com
- It is forbidden to share Immersed Access accounts. Any evidence of this will result in immediate banning from the site as this is a misrepresentation of personal identity and is a breach of the Terms and Conditions. Content makers can inexpensively purchase additional individual memberships above and beyond their commercial level membership where needed, or take on a commercial membership with more Immersed Access accounts included.
