Youtube starts using 360-degree live streams and spatial audioCoachella Music Festival has been the first show ever to be showed on Youtube with a 360-degree live streams and spatial audio 04/20/2016
You must have realised by now that technology is all around us and, as time goes by, it's only going to get worse. Or better, depends on how you look at it.
Almost on a daily basis, new inventions take over our lives without giving us enough time to get used to the latest technological developments, and it looks like soon we are going to be hearing a lot about one of these newest inventions: we are talking about 360-degree live streams and spatial audio.
In fact, Youtube has already jumped on board to make both 360-degree live streams and spatial audio a thing. The first 360-degree live streams has already taken place during the extremely popular Coachella Music Festival, giving viewers the opportunity to watch some of the performances in 360-degrees.
But apart from that, Youtube has also allowed support for spatial audio for certain on-demand videos, making it the first platform to allow both 360-degree live streams and spatial audio.
In case you are not aware of what spatial audio is exactly, don't worry, because we are here to help you out.
Spatial audio is extremely cool because it allows you to hear videos the same way you would hear them in real life. Are you more confused than before? Let's try again. Basically, thanks to spatial audio, you will be able to hear the depth, distance and intensity all at once, just like you would if the video you are watching was actually taking place in real life, right around you.
It all sounds way too cool and a bit complicated, but there is no doubt that, in no time, this new technology will soon catch on and we will be watching 360-degree videos with spatial audio in a matter of months.
As always, we would like to know what you think about this exciting news for people who treat technology as their religion. That is why we kindly ask you to take a moment to vote in our related poll.
