We had a great conversation in the lobby of the Bellagio where we talked about the process of filming VR content, the importance of empowering filmmakers and creators to develop their own content, and where next is heading next, yes, pun absolutely intended.
NextVR is capable of producing 4k, 60fps, 360-degree live stream video at a bandwidth that can be viewed on your mobile phone. They accomplish this through a camera agnostic system that is aimed at “empowering filmmakers and creators to create their own content.” That being said, NextVR also produces their own content, including the upcoming full release of the Coldplay concert filmed for VR. DJ Roller also reveals they are working on “a lot of different events for the major sports leagues.” This content will all be complete with a multi-angle live stream viewing system that will allow you to chose your viewing perspective. This content will all be available on an upcoming application as well as through a web based content delivery system.
