In a previous post we talked about the amazing use case of immersive media for creating empathy. We referenced the Clouds Over Sidra video that was created by VR company Verse to help draw the attention of large companies and potential supporters to a location they were looking for funding in. They did this with an amazing VR video that allowed viewers to better identify with the needs of the cause.
Today we are featuring a similar use case but this time by a Bublcam owner who is using immersive media to educate around their initiative. The organization Sight to Sky provides low cost, high impact primary healthcare to remote mountain communities. They used a Bublcam to capture educational videos in the locations where they are offering their services, take a look:
This video was embedded on the organization's website in a blog post they created and they use it today to introduce potential volunteers to the environment they would be helping in. They’ve also shared this video with their community on Facebook.
The takeaways for our Bublcam owners and anyone considering purchasing one given these examples are the following:
1. If you are trying to recruit volunteers or supporters for any cause or charity, a spherical video can provide an invaluable first hand experience
2. Overlaying strong audio to your a bubl video can give a distinct clarity to your message
3. Spherical videos can be used simultaneously for promotion, education and to generate buzz on social communities
We hope you’ll take a look at the Sight to Sky project and consider using bubl videos to help out your social cause soon.
Facebook just announced that it has launched its highly anticipated spherical media player with select content contributors. Over the coming weeks they will be rolling out support of spherical media for all users.
This is a huge step towards making spherical technology and immersive experiences mainstream for consumers especially following YouTube’s announcement of support earlier this year.
We believe that there is a bright future for spherical media and are so excited to be a part of this revolution! The Bublcam makes the creation of this type of content possible for anyone because of its simple, end to end workflow.
At Bubl we are committed to supporting all spherical media platforms so our customers have the flexibility they need when it comes to sharing content. We will continue to improve our technology and adapt to major announcements like this one.
Content from the Bublcam is already compatible on Facebook and we encourage our users to begin uploading videos they would like to share with the community!You can purchase a Bublcam through our website. Our next production round begins shipping on December 15, 2015.
