KCRW’s virtual reality highlights: Nas live in concert, VRLA coverage and more

With virtual reality, the future of video is here today. VR is a fully immersive medium that places the audience right in the middle of the action with a full 360-degree 3D experience – strap on your headsets and get comfortable.

This week, KCRW is proud to showcase a range of original content covering the world of virtual reality- including live performances in VR from Nas at this year’s Sound in Focus concert series, a partnership between KCRW and the Annenberg Foundation. We’ll also be premiering exclusive footage in VR filmed during Morning Becomes Eclectic sessions and presenting KCRW’s coverage of VRLA, the worlds premiere VR conference hosted recently in downtown Los Angeles.

For access to more KCRW VR exclusive live sessions, be sure to download the KCRW VR app (available for both iOS and Android) and check out our channels on Samsung VR and Vrideo.
