There is still much to do, but Live360Video.com is now closer to what we set out to build at the beginning – a guide to upcoming high quality live VR streaming broadcasts, on whichever platform they may be.
It is 100% editorial, i.e. real human beings, doing actual research!
Things are just getting started with live VR broadcasts, and it will be fascinating to watch how this new medium grows, until it is ubiquitous, and we look back at this time, when it was all just beginning.
Right now there are maybe 1 or 2 live VR broadcasts a week – the odd NBA game, some occasional concerts and festivals, and (soon) a handful of NHL games. There’s just a few companies capable of bringing the actual technology to do this – companies like NextVR, 360 Designs and 30 Ninjas.
It’s still very much an ‘experimentation’ phase, and we are looking forward to documenting the growth of this new medium over the months and years ahead.
Indeed we plan for this to become a kind of ‘IMDB for Live VR’. At the moment, there are so few historical broadcasts (less than 50?), we plan to document all of them if possible. In short we would like to become a useful reference of almost every professionally produced live VR broadcast known.
So if you know of a past live VR broadcast, or upcoming one, please let us know at tips [at] live360video.com !
We hope you love the idea of live VR as much as we do, and we hope you find our new website useful!
