Samsung plans to broadcast the next Olympics with the use of VR technology
Samsung Electronics plans to broadcast the winter Olympic games which will be held from 9 to 25 February 2018 in Pyeongchang, South Korea, using virtual reality technology.
The information was announced by marketing Director of mobile devices Йfнг Cha-Tae (Cha Young-tae), who added that users Garnier virtual reality will be able to watch sports events as if they were on the scene.
Currently, Samsung Electronics is negotiating with the International Olympic Committee and the Olympic broadcasting service about the use of virtual reality technology during the Olympic games.
Presumably Samsung uses a panoramic camera that will broadcast a picture with a viewing angle of 360° in real-time. Will this opportunity be granted only to owners of the flagship smartphone Galaxy hats and Gear VR, is still unknown.
