WHAT IS VIRTUAL REALITY VIDEO?

When wearing a VR headset (e.g. Samsung Gear VR), Virtual Reality Video can give a viewer a fully immersive experience into another world allowing them to Be anywhere and See everything. This opens up a world of opportunities in terms of content creation for tourism, corporate advertisements, training, entertainment, sales and many more. The opportunities are endless. When filming in VR, we treat the camera as a human being. The question then arises, what is it that you want your target audience to see, to hear. Where do you want them to be, what do you want them to experience? This is the power of VR.


If you have something unique to offer, VR app development will allow you to monetise your VR experience and open up a global income stream to a market that never existed before.

" Virtual reality is taking the globe by storm and will be the top technology trend in 2016 and possibly years to come."

THE FUTURE IS VR

Virtual reality is taking the globe by storm and will be the top technology trend in 2016 and possibly years to come. Think of the first time video was launched in the 1940s, we currently experiencing the launch of a brand new technology being launched globally allowing us to engage with consumers like never before. In June 2016 Samsung reported sales of over 1 Million VR headsets since their launch in early 2016. Experts predict that over 200 Million VR headsets will be sold by 2020, just imagine the opportunities of brand engagement that is waiting upon us.


Virtual reality video has been around for a number of years but there was no affordable vehicle to get those videos out to a global market. Thanks to the advancement in smart phone technologies, the consumer market is currently far outgrowing the content creation market and this is where the opportunity lies. People have Virtual Reality headsets with very little content to view. Facebook and YouTube both enabled the playback of 360 VR videos on their social media platforms opening up huge possibilities for 360 advertisements.
