In what is maybe a worldwide first, VRLive and Radiant Images are broadcasting live 360˚ stitch and distribution footage from the NAB 2016 show floor.
VRLIVE’s 360-degree cinema-quality live-streaming technology is on display in both the Codex Booth #SL6828, located in the South Hall, and the Band Pro Film & Digital Booth #C10408, directly adjacent to the Sony booth in the Central Hall.
You can watch on any desktop computer and also on iOS and Android with Apps. The live streams are viewable as 360-degree scrollable live-video or can be experienced within a virtual reality head-mounted display.
“This is a giant leap forward,” said Michael Mansouri, VP at Radiant Images. “Together with VRLIVE, we are the first to do this live 360 stitch and distribution platform. This is the future, and it will fundamentally change the way we experience travel, entertainment, live concerts and events, education and, as we’re showing this week, trade shows. The possibilities are limitless.”
