Re: More Video
@Adi: From my conversations with TV/video execs and VR people, it seems to be that VR's best use case in this environment is that of the live event -- particularly the live concert.

I think what the future holds is a nifty combination of AR and AI in reality television and -- eventually -- standard serial formats.

BTW, not sure if I said so before, but *great* headline.

Re: More Video
@Adi I think you're right about the size and pricing of headsets. Mainstream adoption will be tough without better headsets at a lower prices.

Re: AR in sports
@Adi that makes sense. Also AR can work off your device without special headgear, which is why it likely will find more mainstream applications before VR.

Re: AR in sports
Good point -- "virtual" sets, images, graphics etc. as an important part of sports coverage today, much less in the future. Perhaps she sees that more as a broadcast function than a pay-TV issue. She's speaking from the POV of a pay-TV provider, and the AR component is already baked into the video feed by the time it gets to them.

Re: More Video
I think we'll need lighter, cheaper headsets for VR to work. And I wonder if there is a significant TV/Video opportunity for VR even in the long run. I think for certain events, absolutely. But broadly speaking, I'm not sure VR will have a huge impact on the more regular TV/video entertainment experience.

Re: More Video
Sure, it seems everyone is indeed excited about VR. But I keeping reading reports that headsets are not being sold - they are just sitting in inventory. 

That's not good news. Hopefully some really cool use case is going to solve this problem.

I like how they have he 4K Video for issues etc. They will make it more accessible and convenient for us and them.

AR in sports
A bit surprised Revare isn't as bullish on AR in sports content as other TV execs seem to be in my own conversations with them.

We already have some level of AR in regular sports broadcasting today, really.  (Best example: the imaginary yellow lines to indicate where the down line is in American football.)
