Top 10 Most Viewed 360° Videos of 2016

Top 10 Most Viewed 360° Videos of 2016 | Panoramic video (focusing on cinematic VR) | Scoop.it
Thursday this week will mark 500 days since the YouTube team officially released global support for 360° video content (statement here). Following that announcement, content creators from all over the world were encouraged to test the limit and try out this strange but promising new way of shooting film, and stitching it together again, surgically placing the viewer direcly into the film. Riding …
Clifford Dive's insight:
I guess with all content it's as much about discovery as the content itself - but this makes interesting reading as the cinematic VR world tries to work out what it's for.

Rylo is the 360 camera that finally makes 360 video useful

Rylo is the 360 camera that finally makes 360 video useful | Panoramic video (focusing on cinematic VR) | Scoop.it
It can’t quite replace your action camera, but the Rylo shows a glimmer of what the future of consumer video could be.
Clifford Dive's insight:
Using a 360 degree spherical camera to produce flat movies and stills. It's an interestingly different approach which I think ultimately has greater general application than the wow factor of full 360 cinematic VR - it's just so much easier to consume. When I was working in this field I was particularly impressed by the stabilisation possibilities offered by 360, and it seems this product has taken advantage of that.

I'd certainly like to play with it but would I spend my own money? Certainly not until there's an Android app.

Damming the Nile: Explore with 360 video

Damming the Nile: Explore with 360 video | Panoramic video (focusing on cinematic VR) | Scoop.it
Travel the length of the Nile with BBC News to find out how a new dam being built in Ethiopia is threatening to cause a serious rift with neighbouring countries Egypt and Sudan.
Clifford Dive's insight:
A VR documentary taster from the BBC. There's a link there for the full version. I watched it for a while using a Google Cardboard headset - it's nicely shot and very striking for short periods, but I'm still yet to be convinced that people will watch documentary length content on a headset. Putting aside the poor resolution when viewed on Cardboard, the logistics of viewing 360-degree content (you either have to stand up or sit on a swivel chair to look all around) make this a whole body experience.

Clifford Dive's insight:
It's a while since I took a look at 360-degree cameras, so I thought this article was worth noting. We're looking at professional cameras, and therefore it's perhaps not surprising that there aren't too many changes here since last time I looked.

Of course, the big news since this was written is that the OZO, at once both flawed and brilliant, is no more.
