The New York Times and Samsung Electronics America have launched The Daily 360, a visual digital journalism project produced by The Times newsroom, that will deliver at least one 360° video every day, enabling viewers to see the news from all angles.
Samsung is providing Gear 360 cameras and equipment to Times journalists around the world to use while reporting out in the field. The Daily 360 is published to Times platforms, including NYTimes.com and its mobile and VR apps, as well as to Samsung VR, the company’s premium virtual reality content service. In addition, Samsung 837 is building an evergreen experience to feature Daily 360 content within its Explore with Galaxy area, where guests of 837 can immerse themselves in Times journalism.
“From Snowfall to The Upshot to The Displaced, the award-winning VR film that blazed the trail in VR journalism, The Times has been the leader in visual digital storytelling,” said Dean Baquet, executive editor, The New York Times. “Whether The Times is on the campaign trail, the front lines of Aleppo, or in the front row at Fashion Week, The Daily 360 brings you there to bear witness with us.”
