The Jump Start program is designed to give filmmakers easy access to hardware like the Yi Halo. Through the program, filmmakers can apply to get free access to a Yi Halo and the Jump Assembler, which is Google’s program designed for processing VR video. Interested filmmakers can apply for the program’s first application round here until May 22.

While Jump and hardware like the Yi Halo aren’t the most accessible mass market products, they fit in with Google’s larger strategy for VR. The company wants to have a mix of consumer products like the Daydream VR and still provide strong options to larger business and creative users.
