Using 360 video and virtual reality is, plainly, different from flat video coverage, with production time, editing and file size challenges, among others. It is also an incredible, immersive and illustrative storytelling tool that newsrooms can integrate into digital reporting packages to better connect with their communities.

This session is designed for:

  • Newsrooms interested in introducing immersive video into developing news coverage
  • 360 reporters looking for tools to make immersive video a quicker, cheaper, easier sell
  • Anyone who values compelling immersive coverage of breaking news
