Sometimes called immersive videos or spherical videos, 360-degree videos are new entrants in the world of video streaming. 360-degree videos require a special camera that can record in all directions at the same time. During playback on a normal screen, users can pan the camera’s view to see all around. 360-degree videos are truly phenomenal as users can experience being right in the middle of the action. As if regular video streaming was not interesting enough, live streaming in 360 degrees has taken the gaming experience to an even more interacting level. Whether it is a sporting event, a personal skiing adventure in the Alps, or a bike ride through the Grand Canyon, 360-degree video live streaming is a mesmerizing experience for your viewers.
