Our first 360 video : weekly watch has been provided by the BBC. The video gives you the chance to step into the Large Hadron Collider within CERN,the worlds largest physics experiment.
For anyone that doesn’t already know, 360 video streaming is already in full swing on Youtube and it gives you the opportunity to not only watch whats in front of you but also look around in any direction by clicking on the video and dragging your cursor. As you’ll see from this video it gives you a broader perception of what you’re watching and when viewing in a VR headset you get a truly immersive experience.
There has been over a million hours of 360 video streamed through Samsung Gear VR already, which was confirmed by Mark Zuckerberg himself. With companies like the BBC already streaming content regularly in 360 and YouTube looking to go another step by launching Live-streaming 360 videos in the near future, it seems this blossoming trend is only going to become even more popular with the imminent release of Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. If you’re still deciding on which headset will be best to meet your VR viewing needs then check our comparison article out.
