Pax Stereo Tv is adding Facebook’s newly announced Live 360 to it’s live broadcast streams. Live 360 brings the immediacy and authenticity of Facebook Live and the immersive nature of 360 media together to transport people into moments and experiences—right as they happen. Now anyone can watch Pax Stereo broadcasts Live in 360 and experience the social interactivity of Facebook Live with comments and reactions. Coming soon, we will be adding spatial audio to our Live 360 streams creating a unique “ambisonic” viewing experience. (4-9-17)
Q: What is the benefit of shooting a Live video in 360?
A: 360 videos immerse our audience in a particular place, helping them to develop empathy and awareness by putting them right in the scene. By sharing these videos with Facebook Live, it takes that immersion a step further by giving our audience a chance to be in the moment through both place and time.
Q: Is Live 360 available for everyone to watch on Facebook?
A: Yes! If you are using a device compatible with Live and 360 video on Facebook (Android devices from 2012 with OS 4.3 and newer and Apple devices with iOS 8 and newer), you’ll be able to watch our Live 360 videos at launch. If you are using an older phone or operating system, you will be able to experience the Live video in an equirectangular format, that is, watch the full 360 degrees as a flat video on Facebook.
