Matthias Taugwalder talk will focus on VR panoramas in print media, online media and on mobile devices. Interactive 360 degree VR panoramas have one specific feature, that is especially interesting for media and news publications: It is possible to show a location at a specific time to someone else.
May it be a remote location hard to reach or an exclusive event to cover, there is no other media that can supply this unique immersive experience.
