Oculus Rift

Perhaps one of the most realistic and immersive methods for enjoying 360 video content is by viewing it with the Oculus Rift. The marquee solution among VR enthusiasts, the Oculus Rift makes it possible to enjoy high-resolution content in an interactive format. With content-viewing technology taking huge leaps forward, the next question stirring the VR community is how can people create great content to view with the Oculus?

360RIZE gear presents itself as one of the most efficient and simplistic tools for creating content for the Oculus Rift. Our 360 video solutions give videographers, tech enthusiasts and everyday people the opportunity to create their own interactive panoramic video content. With a turnaround time that can be as short as a few hours, individuals can shoot 360 video content in the morning, and be enjoying it in complete immersion via the Rift that evening.

Samsung Gear VR

Gear VR no BackgroundFor Samsung Note 4 users, the Samsung Gear VR is another viable virtual reality viewing medium. In order to experience your 360 video content on the Samsung Gear VR, you first need to transfer the files onto your phone. With your Note 4 connected to your computer, save an .mp4 360 video file onto your phone in the folder labeled “360 videos” (this folder is located within the “Oculus” folder).

Once you’ve transferred the video file, the content can be accessed within the Gear VR virtual menu by selecting the “Library” option. Within your library you will see a “360 video” category that will take you to an area where your uploaded 360 video files are stored. Simply select one of your files and enjoy your content in full immersion!

Immersive Dome Theaters

virtual realityAnother exciting avenue for viewing content captured with 360Heros gear utilizes immersive projection domes. Through our partnership with Elumenati we have been able to explore the potential that large projection domes have for viewing 360 video content.

These domes allow people to literally surround themselves with the panoramic video content. With the ability to project and display 4K content, dome theatres have a wide array of applications that includes promotional events, screening episodic content and interactive education.

360Heros CEO Michael Kintner discusses the potential for viewing 360 video content in projection dome theaters.
