360 Designs delivers VR keynote at HPA Tech Retreat in Palm Springs

The HPA Tech Retreat is a gathering of prominent chief engineers, CTO’s and technologists working in television and broadcasting, held annually in Palm Springs.

This year, 360 Designs Founder & CEO Alx Klive provided the VR keynote address to a packed audience at the Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa, who learned in most cases for the first time what is involved in producing a large scale live VR broadcast.

The presentation covered the behind-the-scenes work involved specifically in delivering last year’s ‘Racing the Sun’ VR broadcast, in partnership with CNN, which featured a number of highly technical challenges to solve. These included having 7 remote camera locations across the country, a live 360 helicopter shot, and four live 360 car shots.

We are very grateful to HPA Tech Retreat for inviting us to speak at their prestigious event, and look forward to going back.
