B204: Virtual Reality and 360-degree Live Streaming


Virtual Reality (VR) and 360-degree are emerging as two of the most innovative live streaming trends, powering events such as sporting matches, concerts, corporate meetings, education, medicine, military applications, and many other areas. In this session, you’ll get hands-on with live demos and get more familiar with the technology as we walk through some common 360-degree live streaming workflows, including the Lollapalooza Berlin 2015 music festival that allowed virtual attendees to attend the live concert series and be immersed with the band on stage. Most VR technologies use industry-standard streaming protocols that can be implemented with common streaming servers and platforms. We’ll discuss a couple of examples, including GIROPTIC and VideoStitch Vahana VR, and also review how playback is achieved using common player apps.
