A Guide to Virtual Reality and 360-Degree Video

ppmag vr.jpg
Virtual reality (VR) is computer-generated content that simulates a real-world or fantastical experience. It requires playback in a headset of some type, so visuals must be in 3-D in 360 degrees around the viewer, and the audio also has to be spatial (3-D sound). 

Until recently, computer-generated imagery was the only way to create VR content that was 3-D in 360 degrees. But now, new technology provides opportunities to capture the real world in 360 degrees.

Explore what this may mean for photographers, videographers, and consumers in this article on Professional Photographer magazine.
