Creative Announces BlasterZone: Blast Away All Barriers To Viewing Mobile Game Recordings In Immersive VR

Creative Technology Ltd today announced the launch of BlasterZone (, which will be featured at the Creative booth at CES Las Vegas 2016.

BlasterZone is the next generation of game replay viewing technology, which allows the viewer complete freedom to view the same recording on any device, at any resolution, on any display ranging from mobile devices, to large 4K or higher resolution screens, to VR headsets with full stereo display. This is achieved by our unique 3D vertices recording technology, which captures everything in real-time, including audio, in a 3D world.

During playback, the viewer can pause the video, rewind, move the camera angle to view it from a different perspective, and start playing to see what happened during gameplay from the different point of view. The viewer can zoom in anywhere on screen, at full resolution, to see any part of the replay close up in all the finest detail possible.

Experience infinite resolution playback and zoom of popular games such as Clash of Clans® and Minecraft™ PE via the BlasterZone Player App available for free on the Google Play™ Store today. The ability to view all existing recordings in VR mode will be released as an app update in January at CES 2016. Desktop users can view BlasterZone directly at using the Chrome™ browser. Users who wish to record and publish their own BlasterZone content can find the details at

“Typical video streaming sites such as YouTube™ and Twitch™ are bound by the resolution and format of recorded or streamed videos. BlasterZone removes all barriers to fully immersive VR at infinitely scalable resolution, enabling the viewer to be transported into the game player's world with the ability to view and move anywhere he wants at any time, all from the same single recording,” said Darran Nathan, GM of BlasterZone Division.

“BlasterZone is the next generation in 3D game recording and playback, built on decades of high-performance computing acceleration technologies, graphics, and audio expertise. With BlasterZone, Creative is entering the new era of Virtual Reality with this breakthrough technology, focusing on the huge content playback market. Audiences viewing video playback will be able to enjoy a far more interactive, immersive, and fun experience,” said Sim Wong Hoo, CEO of Creative Technology Ltd.
