A Behind the Scenes Look at a 360 Video Agency
Since the influx of VR devices, 360 videos have become the norm for engaging and enticing audiences. Unlike traditional 2D videos, 360 videos allow users to have a complete view of their surroundings. In this article, we will explore what goes into establishing a 360 video agency and how it can enhance your business.
What is a 360 video agency ?
A 360 video agency is an agency which specializes in creating 360 immersive and interactive films or ads that give viewers a full perspective. Instead of just watching a video, you can look around just like in real life.
Typically, such agencies have a team of experts who may have different roles depending on their skill set such as filming, subject matter experts, stitching and editing to make amazing immersive scenarios.
How can 360 videos enhance your business ?
360 videos for business not only gives them an upper hand against their competitors but also leads to workplace productivity and proficiency.
Mitigate the cost
Since 360 videos can be accessed via a WebGL link, a smartphone, or a desktop, it eliminates the need to have a physical place to visualize the product or inquire about the services. As a result, it can save costs for the company associated with creating infrastructure, staffing and logistics.
Many video and social platforms like Youtube, Vimeo and Facebook have started supporting 360 video format, making it easier for people to like, comment and share with their friends. This further expands the reach, increases viewability, and leads to higher revenue.
Better Learning Outcomes
According to a PWC study, a VR-based scenario makes learners feel 3.75 times more emotionally connected to the content and 4 times more focused during training than their e-learning peers and 1.5 times more focused than their classroom colleagues.
Immersive Learning Scenarios
360 video enables businesses to create diverse scenarios ranging from training and onboarding to product demonstrations and walkthroughs.
By utilizing these interactive learning scenarios, companies can enhance productivity and efficiency without the need for investing in costly standard operating procedures (SOPs) and manuals.
360-degree videos have versatile applications across industries, including real estate, tourism, education, marketing, automotive, healthcare, architecture, entertainment, manufacturing, and more.
They enable immersive experiences and interactive storytelling for enhanced engagement.

The Rijksmuseum, a prominent national museum in Amsterdam, faced challenges due to the temporary closure and restoration of its iconic artwork, “The Night Watch.”
Seeking to engage both young people and the elderly, the museum aimed to introduce art in an innovative and accessible manner while catering to seniors unable to physically visit.
To address these objectives, VR Owl created two immersive experiences using an 8k resolution 360-degree camera. The first experience, “Dive Deeper into the Night Watch,” offers a journey led by tour guide Tyi, and the second experience, “The Rijksmuseum in VR – The Gallery of Honour,” guided by Bo.
The result is a remarkable opportunity for anyone to access and explore one of the world’s most renowned museums. These virtual tours, enriched with expert narration and enhanced visuals, offer unique insights into the artworks and deliver an experience that rivals an in-person visit.
