Virtual reality is entering big time into the live events and entertainment industry, whereby broadcasting live streams in a 360 view is not a thing of the future. With virtual reality applications like VR-Magic you can see what the crowd's reaction is just by turning around, or, look at the drummer doing something, which wouldn't normally be possible in a single pane camera view.
With advancements in features such as augmented waypoint markers it is possible to provide the viewer, a 360 virtual experience of the event from different field positions. The viewer just needs to look at the other camera position displayed as a hotspot in their panoramic field of view, which stops the broadcast stream from the current camera and initiates the stream from the destination camera, thereby providing a flyby kind of an experience. WOW now isn't this is called "virtual teleportation"!
US based tech start-ups are doing some ground breaking work in the field of virtual reality live event streaming, and is undergoing some major tie ups with event management companies and sports channels. But with applications like VR-Magic India also looks forward to providing an immersive virtual reality live event experience to its viewers.
