One of the more accessible versions of virtual streaming.
YouTube has announced a new video platform called Live 360, an immersive live stream that will allow for 3D viewing with the use of iOS and Androids apps or Google Cardboard – and their first live music broadcast will happen this Wednesday with FACT favorite D∆WN.
According to The Verge, who have partnered with YouTube for this stream: “YouTube is going to be deploying 360-degree cameras to its work spaces around the country, giving video creators a chance to experiment with this technology.”
While there are cameras that are recommended for use, The Verge also notes: “YouTube also released an open API, meaning any hardware maker can try to integrate the product with their camera.”
D∆WN will perform on YouTube 360 Live on April 20 at 8PM EST.
