Is VR Live Streaming the Future of Entertainment

If you’re wondering what’s going on in the virtual reality arena, then let me tell you something. Things are changing at a fast pace around VR. We’ve talked about VR getting into the medical science, tourism, and gaming early one, which is still a breathtaking experience to get into but it’s not limited to that.

This article reveals that NextVR is getting into the paid live events. NextVR is famous for live sports streaming in VR and has been quite popular among the VR Sports fans in 2016. The very same article might jolt the VR fans because it seems that NextVR is going into the entertainment VR content as well and they’ve struck a deal with ‘Live Nation’ to stream hundreds of concerts in virtual reality. This means a lot of fans might be able to attend their favorite artists’ concerts in VR through live stream when they would not be physically present at the concert. How amazing is that?

Netflix has already launched its VR app to provide the virtual reality experience, which seems to be a signal to the audience that entertainment and virtual reality are getting along under the same umbrella. The possibilities are opening up, though.

It’s unrealistic to say that entertainment has nothing to do the with the virtual reality because if virtual reality would take the world by storm as it seems that it would, then entertainment world might get aligned with the VR technology to provide the immersive entertainment experience to the end users. The entertainment world, however, looking up towards the technology and the internet ever since the online video and social media have taken the larger chunk of the audience and continuously engaging them along the way.

Patrick bet-David talked about this kind of thing in this video while discussing the media trend shift that we’re witnessing at the moment and how the world of internet and social media is changing the media game. His video was released on YouTube in 2015 and it’s getting more realistic and appealing every passing year because of that trend-shift that we are a part of.

That being said, when we see all this happening and technology is taking over traditional media and trends, then we could predict that VR live streaming will certainly be a thing in a couple of years from now. The point is, virtual reality seems to be something that hasn’t been adopted by the masses but on the flip side the way it’s gaining the momentum, it looks like the ice ball that’s getting bigger and bigger.

Extended Reality (XR) is an umbrella term that refers to all the immersive technologies, including the ones that already exist – virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR), and the ones that are still being developed.

It is a term that covers all virtual and physical combined environments and human-machine interaction generated by computer technology and wearables.

If you have used the Snapchat AR filters, taken selfies wearing a virtual hairpiece, or had virtual cat ears popped on your head, you have already interacted with the concept of Augmented reality.

Augmented reality (AR) refers to enhanced interactive experiences of the real physical world through computer-generated digital elements.

Whereas, a simulated environment created by computer technology, that can be similar to or totally different from the real physical world is known as Virtual Reality (VR). Anyone can now step into a fully immersive and 3D digital environment by simply using a VR headset.

Mixed Reality (MR) is just a combination of both AR and VR. Microsoft Hololens is a popular example of a commercially available mixed reality device. It projects holograms into your physical surroundings that you can manipulate or interact with.
