Carlos Chegado, president of the  International VR Photographer Association (IVRPA) was so kind to invite me to speak at the 2012 conference in New York City, June 13-16, 2012. I was honored to be part of the illustrious lineup of speakers, promising a very interesting flood of news and knowledge, and very happy to see so many professionals again.

The talk was divided into 3 parts: a bit of history about existing 360 video solutions, my experience with the project with Sony and LBi, and an extended Q&A session. Since the talk is 1h, I split it up into 3 parts, and feel free to post your questions in the comments below.

Part 1: History and background:

Part 2: Design and philosophy

Part 3: demo and Q&A
