"The ITA is proud of our growing speaker line-up and the opportunity to show just how much Canada's industry has to offer and benefit from technologies like virtual and augmented reality.

"Look out Toronto, we're unleashing our walkers! Taking our StarVR HMD on the road the past few months have been a blast. It's great to see the awesome reactions that people have had while experiencing our Overkill's The Walking Dead VR-demo in full 210-degree field of view. "It's a true testament to how our technology immerses the players to provide the best experience possible," said Guillaume Gouraud, Senior Vice-President of Business Development for StarVR.
