Virtual reality (VR) is here. In the last few years, the emergence of new, innovative multi-camera systems has enabled producers to more easily capture the high-resolution 3D 360-degree video required for creating stunning VR experiences.
More and more universities are assembling on-campus video production teams to meet rising demand for video content. From admissions offices and alumni associations to research teams and campus security, an array of departments are working with video production teams to create professional-quality media and manage content meant to promote the university, advance research, and help protect people and property.
If you’re one of the many who have taken a “wait and see” attitude to virtual reality (VR) content creation, now may be the time to jump on board. Advocates who say VR won’t go the way of 3D TV were given more reasons to cheer last week — NBC announced it will provide 85 hours of 360° video from the 2016 Olympics in Rio next month.
