Virtual Reality/360 in Your Business Reporting

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

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.

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