Jaunt Captures eSports Tournament for VR Experience

Publish date:

Jaunt VR, in collaboration with MTGx and eSports organization ESL, has captured this year's Intel Extreme Masters eSports tournament in 360 degrees for a future virtual reality experience.

"ESports is a global phenomena that is just going to keep on getting bigger and bigger. Cinematic VR is on the same trajectory and the two perfectly complement each other," Scott Brock, Jaunt's VP of content deal development, tells [a]listdaily. "Technology is the thing that binds them, but at the end of the day it's the incredible human stories of eSports that ultimately pulls fans in. VR makes people feel like they’re there in the center of it all, no matter where they live."
