From VR to Tools for Production and QC

Virtual Reality is one of the most appealing and promising new experiences when it comes to enjoying media content. The
interactive selection of the view provides
more than audio and picture – especially
for all users who have grown up with Star
Trek and computer games. Wearing VR
glasses is no longer a barrier – what counts
is the real-time view selection of video and
sound content in best quality very close to
reality. This immersive experience of real-
life content makes VR a door-opener for
new media business, in a way that is different
from CGI-created content.
