Tell me more about 360 Stories

What is 360 content?

360 or immersive content is video and imagery where a view in every direction is captured at the same time, providing a 360-degree panorama.  When looking at 360 content, the user is able to enter an immersive environment and mentally transport themselves and experience another place without physically being there.

What are the benefits of 360 video versus standard video?

Engagement metrics for 360 video content consistently outperform 2D video, with higher click-through rates and increased dwell time. Clicking on a hotspot button and teleporting to new scenes in a highly realistic environment heightens the richness of a fully interactive experience for the user.

How do I capture 360 videos or imagery?

You need to have a 360 camera in order to capture videos and imagery in 360. Take a look at this article on our website about the best 360 cameras to invest in.
