Entertainment technology companies are booming more than ever as consumers continue to look for the latest in entertainment technology. This consumer interest has sent many large manufactures off on a hunt for the next big trend or product. This hunt has cultivated a growing interest into the realm of virtual reality entertainment. Many fantastic products have been introduced in recent years and with more on the horizon, there is every reason to be excited about the fantastic products that are slowly being released to the public. Below are a few new advancements that you should be aware of.
What To Look For
In the realm of video imaging and 3d videos there are a number of fantastic items and technologies that are being released. Here are a few of them given with brief descriptions:
- 360 Panoramic Photos: these are already available on most smart phones. The function allows for the photographer to take an image with a 360 degree viewpoint making it easier to capture complete scenes or views that would be otherwise impossible to include in a standard photo. 360 filming has also become a reality due to this advancement with the application of the panoramic video camera.
- Stereoscopic 3d video: Here is a simple way to explain, stereoscopic video is what allows you to experience a 3d film. An example would be the type of movie that requires you to put on the old red and blue 3d goggles at the movie theater. While making a 3d film used to be an incredibly difficult process in the past, 3d filming has become much more accessible allowing forms of media, videos you view on the internet for example, to be viewed in new 3d video.
- Oculus Rift Virtual Reality: This is one device that offers the ground breaking experience of virtual reality in the comfort of your own home. The oculus rift is a helmet/goggle apparatus that can be used with most of your gaming consoles and computers. The Oculus rift also offers 3d video settings for both games and movies.
What May Be Coming in the Future
Most of the products that have been discussed all have the capability to completely revamp how we experience video entertainment. With the slow shift to 3d newer display devices and consuls will need to be upgraded in order facilitate 3d capabilities for both movies and video games. Many of the older consoles and computers will be rendered absolute with coming advancements. While these new products and technologies may be fantastic in their own right, they are only scratching the surface in regard 3d imaging and entertainment.
In an effort to make understanding what exactly stereoscopic video is I have attached a link to the bottom of this page. The video shows the difference between standard video and stereoscopic making it easy to see the difference between the two.
