Virtual Aggregation! RTL Leads $15M Investment in Inception VR

Advanced Television:

Inception, a next-generation immersive content network, has announced a $15 million Series A funding round led by RTL Group, the broadcast, content and digital media giant. This investment helps Inception expand its content catalogue, enhance its technology platform and accelerate growth.

Inception’s home page showcases a ton of 360 video content, most of which looks mildly tittilating and/or annoying on first glance. Interestingly enough, scroll down the page and you’ll see a bunch of Time Out branded content. I haven’t seen a copy of Time Out in years!

RTL Group is a media conglomerate with interests in 59 television and 31 radio stations in 10 countries across Europe. Their home page is also not a model of modern aestheticism.

But, hey, content aggregation is alive and well in the age of VR!
