The Associated Press and AMD launch the first 360° News Channel. This is the first channel of its kind to provide news in Virtual Reality and 360° viewpoints.
Bringing 360° News Channel to the world
New technology is giving journalists dramatically new ways to tell stories. One of the most striking is virtual reality and 360 video. It immerses viewers in the middle of the action, breaking physical and economic barriers by enabling them to travel into different environments and explore new realities.
The AP is excited to tell stories in this new format. In a new collaboration, AP will leverage AMD technology to render several future VR environments for news and documentaries. This new channel, powered by AMD Radeon graphics processors, will feature AP’s latest VR and 360 journalism. AP editors will retain complete control over the editorial content presented via the new AP virtual reality channel.
