If you’re a punter or lover of the ‘nags’, aka horses, you’ll appreciate the opportunity that live VR might provide in allowing you a closer look at the horses prior to a race – when they parade in front of the grandstand in the paddock.
Punters always look for any edge they can get, and the (horse) parade has always traditionally been something that on course attendees felt they had an advantage over those who were watching on a screen a long way away.
Live VR changes all that, and Sky Racing in Australia, in association with Mojo Media Solutions, is broadcasting this meetup for several hours in ultra high quality live 360, and plans to broadcast more horse racing meetups in VR in future.
We think this is a great use of live VR, and an application you wouldn’t typically think of. Maybe it will give these punters the edge!
