Producing 360-Degree VR Sports Videos for YouTube

Publish date:

"'The Moment really captures the focus and preparation required of some of the best athletes in non-traditional sports,'” said Will Kiersky, Vice Sports publisher. 'What’s even better is that we can leverage the 360-degree view on YouTube to really provide our audience with a fully immersive and interactive experience from wherever they want to watch.'"
