Pixel Canvas – a PureWeb Premier Partner – has previewed OMNIYA, a first-of-its-kind customizable metaverse for enterprise.
Launching in June, OMNIYA (pronounced “Ahm-nee-uh”) is a metaverse built on Unreal Engine that will give end users a stunning 3D virtual experience, while enabling creators and businesses to host metaverse experiences at scale. Powered by PureWeb’s unparalleled Pixel Streaming platform, OMNIYA will enable a wide range of hosting capabilities, from intimate gatherings to massive events, all from within the browser – no downloads or special equipment needed. Its genesis collection will include uniquely designed environments, mini games, and in-world experiences from Pixel Canvas’ library that will be readily available to members.

“Brands and influencers are embracing the Metaverse at a rapid pace,” says Joey Lee, CEO and Creative Director at Pixel Canvas. “The ability to grow and engage followers in a dynamic, interactive platform turns passive fans into loyalists. Many current metaverses have failed to deliver on the experience that Web3 users expect – most are slow, clunky, pixelated, or low-res. Thanks to our partnership with PureWeb, our team is proud to deliver a fully built, always-on metaverse focused on a premium user experience.”
“The PureWeb Reality platform makes it easier than ever for brands and businesses to develop and distribute high-quality metaverse experiences at scale,” says James Henry, CEO at PureWeb. “Our platform is a critical infrastructure layer to the metaverse and we are both proud and excited to be part of Pixel Canvas’ groundbreaking OMNIYA metaverse.”

From April 18th – 21st, 2022, Pixel Canvas and leading Web3 consultancy agency BBCo hosted an exclusive OmniPass presale event, which welcomed a host of NFT influencers such as DJ Tropix, DressX, Expopulus, and DigiArts. During that time, OmniPasses were available for sale on a first-come-first-serve basis. An OmniPass is an NFT that allows the holder a number of special benefits – they were allowed to mint before the general public during the presale window for OMNIYA models. OmniPass holders will have first access to the tier/model of their choosing when OMNIYA opens in June and can apply the value of their OmniPass toward that cost.
Over the course of the four-day event, distributed by PureWeb, 4000 visitors from around the world entered the OMNIYA presale experience and 549 OmniPasses were sold. Each day unveiled different immersive 3D demos of ready-built metaverse environments as well as gamified experiences that will be available for OMNIYA members.
