WHO WE ARE
An independent VR production company based in San Diego, CA specializing in creative storytelling and underwater camera technology development for clients.
UNDERWATER VR LEADERSHIP
VRTUL has experience in every category of “Underwater VR” from theme park attractions, live broadcasts, to elite multi-part natural history expeditions. We believe in developing high quality camera housings and processes from the ground up in order to collaborate with world-class non-profits, organizations, and agencies.
THE PREMIERE UNDERWATER STORYTELLING VR CAMERAS
The VRTUL 2 is the only underwater VR camera solution capable of recording in native stereoscopic 3D and 12-bit DNG RAW. The V-Mini, which utilizes the Kandao Obsidian S & R cameras, is the best prosumer UW 360 3D camera solution in the world for cinematic recording and livestreaming.
The best VR experiences aren’t developed by individuals; they happen through deeply invested working relationships across a range of technologies and industries.
