Our mission


Since its inception in 2008 by Anthony Karydis, with offices in New York, London and Athens, Mativision provides truly immersive experiences for brands and businesses by combining high-quality 360˚ video and Virtual Reality (VR). We were recently ranked 5th amongst the 10 fastest-growing interactive companies in London (Datafox, 2016).

Our mission is to use our proprietary VR& 360° technology for the greater good by establishing the proprietary VRinOR® platform as the global go-to destination for VR-based medical training content.

The Mativision end-to-end technology was developed and perfected over 10 years to capture and stream live directly to VR from multiple synchronised 360° cameras. It is aimed at the efficient delivery and broadcast of VR & AR content to all major devices and platforms using the Mativision customisable VR player.

Last year, live-streamed directly from Milan, Mativision provided VR & 360˚ video content for the 2015 MTV EMAs. Most recently, we achieved another world’s first in the VR space by creating a 24-hour VR & 360° video of Iceland as part the launch of the new single ‘Route One’ by Iceland’s famous rock band Sigur Ros.

We also live-streamed in 360° for mobile operator EE from Latitude festival and helped Samsung launch the new Galaxy S7 smartphone from the heart of London by live-streaming a ‘Years& Years’ gig directly to Samsung Gear VR headsets.  Other clients in our growing roster include Vodafone, Coach, Muse and Fox Studios.

Stepping outside the entertainment realm, Mativision has recently expanded into medical VR applications. Following the world’s first VR live-stream of a cancer surgery from St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, we continue to capture key surgical operations performed by specialists in their medical field. The hope is to create VR immersive experiences that will train medical students and doctors around the world. To distribute and deliver this educational content on a global scale, Mativision developed and launched the proprietary VRinOR® platform which is currently available on iOS and Android.


VRinOR® aims to improve surgical training services and enhance doctors specialising in a particular field of expertise by offering wider reach, content interactivity, easier access to a wealth of information and customised experiences. It will also assist medical universities and educational establishments seeking to enhance and widen the range of training modules offered to their students.

 “Virtual Reality has been around for a long time, but it wasn’t really until 2015 that the technology started to build serious momentum in the consumer sector. Today, people are increasingly looking for fully immersive experiences and our technology is helping brands and content providers deliver this as easily as possible,” commented George Kapellos, head of marketing and partnerships at Mativision. “What really appeals to our clients is our unique Live Streaming VR capability and the flexibility of embedding our Mativision™ player into their existing apps without having to build and spend money on new apps. All the while utilising the main VR-delivery platforms GearVR, YouTube, Facebook, Oculus Rift and Google DayDream.”
