WHAT IS 360° VIDEO?
360° Videos can be uploaded to a streaming website such as YouTube – you can simply click play and enjoy. These videos are filmed in a way that captures everything in the direction it is pointed, making it possible for the viewer to look around while watching the video. It can also be watched in a Virtual Reality Headset for a more realistic and engaging experience.

Frequently Asked Questions:
360 videos are used to immerse a viewer in the experience to make it feel like they were there. The user gets the look and feel of the environment you are trying to promote in the comfort of their home. It is then easier to engage with people over the internet and can be a useful marketing strategy.
Virtual Reality uses a digital world where the user can walk around and interact with their environment. A full experience of VR requires a headset and the user isn’t controlled by the filmmaker of their physical location and motivates the user to head in the direction of the story. 360 videos are live action videos which limit the user to a 360 degrees view of their environment. It is available on mobile and desktop devices and on websites such as YouTube. The user’s physical location is controlled by the filmmaker and it has to capture the user’s intention to direct the story.
360 Videos can be watched on any mobile devices, laptops, desktops – basically anything with a screen – as well as Virtual Reality Headsets. Simply click play on a video you would like to watch and drag your mouse around to view the entire 360 environment. If you’re on a VR headset just look around. It’s as easy as that!
