How VR and Audio Products Came to Intersect at NAB 2018

Immersive video meets immersive audio at NAB 2018.

VR and 360 has been "all the rage" at NAB over the past few years, with a whole wing dedicated to the products for which the medium encompasses. In that regard, we've seen some pretty crazy camera setups on our trips to Vegas. From uber-expensive motorized casing (that also requires the purchase of 16 smaller cameras to be housed inside) have sprouted forth more mobile (not to mention affordable) rigs for the VR maker.

Now that VR rigs have become more consumer-friendly, it seems that a few audio companies are ready to seize a visible opportunity. It goes without saying that for a VR piece to fully take the viewer out of whatever's going on in their world, it's going to need the sound to match, and VR makers are going to need affordable options.

Check out how the technologies came to intersect in the videos below.
