VR Via Facebook Just Got A Step Closer
Once you have sorted out the best bespoke LED displays money can buy you will want to focus on making sure you have the best content possible for them.
Content is king and if you are to make sure that your content reach the right audiences, you need to invest in keeping ahead of the curve.
Just a couple of years ago the idea that we could easily communicate using virtual reality seemed like a scifi dream. But since Facebook acquired Oculus, has become a much more achievable aim for all companies.
Virtual reality requires the production of 360 video, which can be produced with new technologies.
In April Facebook unveiled a new, game engine compatible, software development kit, that will let content creators give their users the ability to easily capture 360 video or images.
These can then be used in a variety of ways, either for traditional channels, or for sharing experiences via social media platforms such as Facebook (obviously) or other video hosts such as Instagram, Twitter or Snapchat.
It is thought that the move is an attempt to encourage people to buy more VR software, so they themselves can create and view the imagery properly. A move would be in Facebook’s interest now it owns Ocular, claimed FastCompany.com.
Still you may have to sit back and wait to see the full impact of this investment in VR technology, as it is likely to take a few years for people to get used to the idea and invest in it.
