Vimeo is now joining competitors Facebook and YouTube by adding support for VR. Sarah Perez gives details on Vimeo's support on 360 degree video.
“Vimeo has always been committed to preserving and delivering the highest quality video and our move into 360 expands our premium video technology solution to 360 filmmakers,” said Sara Poorsattar, Vimeo’s director of video product, in a statement. “Their stories now benefit from our advanced video compression and player customization tools, along with streaming and offline viewing in up to 4K,” she added. At launch, the new 360 degree video channel is featuring a range of content, including Vimeo “Staff Pick” alumni Greg Barth and Jason Drakeford, as well as films from brands and organizations like the American Museum of Natural History and charity: water.
