We recently posted to our blog about the role of spherical media in broadcasting. Hope you had a chance to check that out and if not, here’s the link.
In our last update we mentioned we had submitted our Bubl Xplor App for approval and we’re now happy to announce its availability in the app stores!
This build gives you access to a stream of curated editorial content including spherical images and videos we call bubls, from the Bubl team. You’re able to view bubls using touch, gyroscope or VR mode and toggle simply between these views by tapping the view icon in the bottom left corner of the screen in the media player:
Launched on mobile in the Xplor app is 3AM, an experimental style piece from Ian Tuason of DimensionGate Studio that looks at the potential for horror based VR video. The 3AM video was also launched on YouTube 360 and was picked up on social channels from Ashton Kutcher and Lil Wayne.
Even as you read this, we are still working on improving the Bublcam and mobile app in order to improve capture. We are aware of discussions in the community regarding the challenges associated with achieving consistent colour and clear detail in spherical media. We are testing with the Bublcam everyday in an effort to improve this and provide you with the appropriate settings to capture the best possible media. Remember to continually visit your Xplor app on your mobile device or Bubl.io online for the latest content from the Bubl team.
We hope you are getting excited about receiving your Bublcams, we are definitely getting excited about being able to ship them.
Some very important updates are coming your way in the next few weeks so until then thanks so much for staying with us and being a part of our community and we hope you enjoy xploring the beginnings of our world of bubls.
