GIBLIB’s offerings of medical lectures and surgical videos received a big boost with the closing of a $2.5 million seed funding round. Including participation from Mayo Clinic and Venture Reality Fund, GIBLIB plans to substantially expand content quantity available for their user base, both in 4K and 360-degree virtual reality.
Their streaming media platform enables medical professionals anywhere on the globe to access immersive and high-fidelity virtual reality content of sought-after surgical procedures and medical topics. The content is available on-demand, and features world-leading specialists from leading academic medical centers providing the most up-to-date techniques and information. They consider their library to be “the largest library of on-demand medical lectures and surgical videos”.
