360/VR Video

The CRC group supports the production of 360 video – both in capturing and editing the content. 360 cameras are available at the Loaner Pool in the Digital Media Studios (115 Pettigrew)


Projects

360 technology is brand new to Bates, but the options are limitless. Take students on a virtual tour of your research location, document an experience, or just tell stories in a new way.


Hardware

Currently, we have two types of 360 camera rigs available:

  • Theta S
  • Samsung Gear 360

We also have Samsung and Occulus systems available for an immersive VR viewing experience.


Software

You can edit 360 video in most professional video applications. At the DMS, we recommend Adobe Premiere Pro or Apple Final Cut X.


Sharing

You can share your 360 video on the following traditional media platforms.

YouTube
Vimeo
Facebook

All of these sites allow you to watch your videos on a desktop computer (okay experience), on a mobile device like a phone or iPad (much better experience) or on a 360 device like Google Cardboard or Occulus Rift (ideal experience).
