360° Video is one of the amazing types of content that you can experience in VR.
Why do we distinguish between 360 video and Movies?
Movies are typically made by, for instance a movie production company, Movies have a story to tell, have a beginning and an end.
If we say 360° Video we are specifically talking about material that has been created for platforms like Youtube, Jaunt VR and so on.
360° video is created making use of a 360° camera.
This is a type of video that is not only suitable to watch using VR Goggles, in fact: 360° is created to experience on a 2D screen! This is why its good to realize that, when people are talking about 360° Video being VR, this is not exactly true.
It is a fact that its great content to watch using VR Goggles, it delivers a great and immersive experience because you are able to “Look around” in the video.
The amount of 360° video that is to be found on YouTube and Facebook is growing at a staggering pace, the fact that 360° camera’s are getting better and cheaper by the day is a great contributor to this fact.
