RT, the news network, has become the first Russian broadcaster to join the Samsung VR video viewing platform.
“Panoramic footage allows the viewers to enjoy full immersion in the event, the place, the story. That’s why RT decided to apply VR technology to its daily news operations,” said Eduard Chizhikov, head of RT’s 360-degree video content production. “Thanks to our partnership with Samsung VR, users will be able to explore new dimensions of virtual reality.”
RT’s channel on Samsung VR platform features over 30 panoramic videos, including footage of the Earth shot from the International Space Station, panoramic footage of the Victory Day Parade in Moscow and the construction of the Crimea Bridge, as well as many others.
“RT360 is the largest content partner for Samsung VR in Russia, and we hope that the audience will appreciate the channel’s high-quality videos,” added Seif El Hakim, head of Marketing, Mobile Division, at Samsung Electronics in Russia.
Samsung VR is available online in 20 countries besides Russia.
