Re: Constraints
Not to forget, we can't just blame companies alone. There is often enough craze about new products coming into market and companies are trying to cash out that cra ze.

Re: Constraints
Exactly. Prices always start super high because companies know that consumers will be drawn to the newest thing. And won't give a huge amount of thought into the price.

No doubt about it. It use to be 360 view dashboards in the past where information from all aspects is made available in one screen. But that is now switching to 360 view videos. Video is the way for future now...

Re: Constraints
Just think of some really boring sports and find a way to make it exciting with 360 video. 

I'm sure there are a lot of companies thinking about this in a techical way. The big breakthrough is when production of such video is taken to new heights.

@Adi:

Very good information. There is no doubt that 360D will take sports to another level.

I agree that viewing experience will be totally enhanced for hors eracing, nitor sporta and water games as you mentioned. And for valid reasons VR may hit doors of poular ball games as an immediate thing.

Re: Constraints
I think sports that are particularly fast moving, but where the visual drama is not necessarily easily captured on video -- horse-racing is one, if you could get the jockey or horse's point of view, would be far more dramatic visually. Motorsports are another example. I think we've already got some great visuals but 360D would create a new level of visual experience. Water sports as well -- water looks great in 4K, would be interesting to see what the experience is like in high-res 360D. And mixed martial arts....etc. etc.

But I think VR will also help existing, popular sports. And given that's where the $$$$ are, I think that's probably where VR investment will also go -- baseball, basketball, football.

I do think though that its an opportunity for less popular sports to get a foot in the door. Leagues can take a risk, licsense out 360D coverage for less, and maybe see viewship and engagement grow.

For now though I think it's more about overcoming the technology hurdles. We've got a ways to go.

I remember when production creativity led to poker being good television when previously it was not. VR could indeed do the same for some sports that in the past have not been made for TV. How about bowling?

That is so true and now that has become a thing of past. I still remember playing music in my casette player. Those are all good old times as playing music in player, watching a DVD movie use to be very precious. Now that there are are many choices for movies, music it has just become like one of the things. Nothings seems so special any more.

I was just regaling a group of youngsters the other day with a tale about how DVD players were a few hundred dollars when they first came out.
