About 360º and 3D VR Videos
360º and 3D VR (virtual reality) offer immersive experiences and interactive learning without a VR headset, controllers and computer.
360º Photos capture panoramic views that allow the viewer to look in any direction.
360º Videos recordings record a view in every direction at the same time. During playback, the viewer controls the viewing direction. 360-degree videos are viewable on laptops, computers, tablets and smartphones with video players that support 360-degree videos.
