We’ve had a panelist drop out of our VR panel at the Live Streaming Summit (www.livestreamingsummit.com), which is co-located with Streaming Media West. If you work with VR, either on the technical or creative side, live in the L.A./Orange County area, and are interested in speaking, please contact Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here’s the session description:
Live Storytelling With Virtual Reality & 360° Video
VR and 360° offer brands and publishers new ways of telling stories and presenting live events to viewers. In order to be successful, though, there needs to be an understanding of not just the technology but the art of crafting immersive videos that will compel viewers to strap on that headset (or at least a Google Cardboard) for an experience that transcends traditional content. This panel features experts in both the content and technology to give attendees a full “field of view” into the emerging worlds of VR and 360° video.
