Virtual Reality/360 in Your Business Reporting

This session on “thinking in the sphere” will cover the basics of using 360-degree video in business coverage to create virtual reality.

Shooting 360-degree video is not like shooting regular video – it requires a totally different way of looking at your surroundings, both before and during shooting.

The session will begin with a review of the latest reasonably priced 360-degree cameras, software and equipment. After a discussion on shooting techniques, session attendees will leave the meeting room to shoot a short 360-degree visualization using their cell phones and a free app.

This exercise will be followed with a review of some of the resulting visualizations, with pointers on how to make them more engaging and informative for website viewers.

Speaker: Retha Hill, executive director, Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurship Lab, ASU Walter Cronkite School of Journalism.

Session sponsored by the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism.
