Session Name: The Magic Behind 'Joshua Bell VR': Immersive Video with Positional Tracking
Speaker(s): Ian Bickerstaff
Company Name(s): Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe
Track / Format: Entertainment VR/AR
Overview: Many VR videos offer the ability to look around in all directions, but are unable to respond to the subtle changes in the viewer's position; they only present the view from one single point in space. This presentation tells the story of how the 'Joshua Bell VR Experience' was adapted to overcome this limitation for PlayStation VR, creating the illusion of full volumetric video without the complexity normally associated with the technique. It then shows how this technology can now be used to enhance a wide range of other VR content.
