New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Our exciting partnership with mk2 marks a major step forward for location-based entertainment and demonstrates Positron's blueprint for bringing a premium, seated VR solution to global audiences through our Voyager distribution network," said Jeffrey Travis, CEO, Positron.

Positron, a virtual reality technology studio in Los Angeles, announced today at the Cannes Film Festival that it has partnered with mk2, the leading virtual reality experience provider in Europe, to offer premium cinematic VR to European audiences through its Voyager full-motion VR chair and Voyager® Network distribution platform. mk2 becomes the first official distributor of Voyager and will represent the territories of France and Spain exclusively.

"Our exciting partnership with mk2 marks a major step forward for location-based entertainment and demonstrates Positron's blueprint for bringing a premium, seated VR solution to global audiences through our Voyager distribution network of motion-synchronized theaters," said Jeffrey Travis, CEO, Positron.

"We're thrilled to partner with Positron to deliver the future of cinematic VR to European audiences," said Elisha Karmitz, CEO at mk2. "In Voyager, we've discovered an unprecedented motion and distribution platform that offers creators a deeper level of immersion that cinematic VR experiences, and their audiences, deserve. We're delighted to add Voyager to our diverse suite of turnkey VR solutions."

Multiple Voyagers can be configured as a VR cinema, with synchronized or separate content screenings. The Voyager® Network, powered by Positron software, allows premium VR content to be delivered to Voyagers anywhere in the world. Voyager has been used by studios such as Universal Pictures (The Mummy Zero Gravity VR Experience), Warner Bros. (Save Every Breath: The Dunkirk VR Experience) and many other content creators.

"Our goal is to transform the way audiences experience VR," said Jennifer Rundell, COO & Co-Founder, Positron. For the ultimate seated VR experience, there is simply nothing like Voyager available in the marketplace."

Voyagers are available for leasing or purchase, at either short-term or permanent installations. A content library of premium VR is available, optimized for Voyager.
