360 Masterclass: How to Live Stream a Concert in Virtual Reality

by Joe Durbin • December 16th, 2016

Last night at the Upload Collective in San Francisco the Nokia Ozo team completed part two in their two part 360 video masterclass. The purpose of the class is to teach aspiring immersive filmmakers how to perfect and grow their art form for this fledgling medium.

The Nokia Ozo is a professional-grade virtual reality camera created by Nokia. It produces high quality 360 content complete with native pipelining software for stitching and live broadcasting. The focus for the Ozo, according to Nokia, is placed upon creating a simple, powerful and repeatable process for filmmakers of any skill level.

In part one of the masterclass oscar-winning VFX artist Alex Henning explained how to stage and create more effective 360 content. In part two, accomplished VR live stream producer Juan Santillan explained how to bring live content onto VR platforms.

According to Ozo’s head of product for VR, Devon Copley, “Juan is amazing. He’s the guy that put Coachella in live 360 VR. He’s shot everyone from Radiohead to LL Cool J in VR.”

The classes were broadcast live via YouTube 360 and you can check out the archived version below:
