Final Four games to be available in virtual reality
The experience will include an immersive view of the games from front row center, though it will only be a 180-degree view, according to Sports Video Group.
The networks, who partnered with virtual reality production company Voke VR to offer the feed, determined a 360-degree view wouldn’t be beneficial in a court-based sport such as basketball.
The feed will be available via a standalone app available via the Oculus store and also include a virtual scoreboard and interactive bracket with access to previous game clips. Audio commentary as well as a feed of the stadium’s ambient noise will also be available.
