Something which for me should revolutionize more the video’s content than 3D, is 360° videos, if you don’t think that I just let you check what the 360° videos that CNN made in Haiti to make your own point of view.
360° is for video what web social networks are for information; it’s involving the users in their own experiences. They can see what they want in the video, each user has his own unique experience ! I personally do not really care about watch my favorite team in 3D, but I would really love sometimes to watch game in 360° and watch what I want as I will in the stadium.
When lot of people who work in video business are focused on 3D, some still works on 360°. That’s the case of Dailymotion with Sony. Dailymotion offer now the first 360° video player. The video player is made for the users of Bloggie (Sony video’s camera with 360° feature) who can now for the first time share their 360 videos on the web.
Although the videos are in low quality, and you can not turn around completely, it’s anyway a good first try. Since both Dailymotion and the Sony Bloggie camera are easy to use, it’s a good start to generalize the use of 360° technology.
I let you check one example above, you can get more video in the Dailymotion’s bloggie space.
