VR Video vs. 360-degree Video: What’s the Difference

 

1. 360-degree videos are known for their natural progression from scene to scene. That means filmmakers handpick what they want to present their audience. Viewers consequently don't have any power over their interactions. In contrast, VR thoroughly immerses users into the environment and allows them to explore whatever and however they want to.

 

2. Virtual reality is only possible with VR headsets, whether these are mobile devices like Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR or more advanced HTC Vice and Oculus Rift. You can achieve really high quality of content with Oculus and HTC Vice. As for 360 video, it may be accessed both through a VR headset and any other device with a regular 2D screen.

 

3. 360 content will let the filmmaker control the story and the timeline. Unlike in the 360° video, a VR story is not set in stone. User are able to create their own experiences in the VR simulation instead of follow pre-determined timeline.
