Dawn of the VRCAST

Brandwidth is no stranger to digital firsts. From apps before they were called apps, gestural technology, connected cars and augmented reality to iPad and Apple Watch blockbuster titles on the days the devices launched, we’ve been there. We’ve also been there with Virtual Reality, we just haven’t been able to shout about it. That’s all about to change with the launch of #StereocastVR.

Innovation is at the heart of everything we do so we’re now pushing virtual boundaries further than ever before with the world’s first full VR series, taking the audience into the action alongside the guests, live music and experiences. Viewers aren’t simply watching the show, they’re in it!

Hosted by Matt Littler and Dean Johnson, the pilot episode features top guests Georgia LA of Beats 1 and Frank Hamilton playing a track from his new album live in the studio. We’re also testing some top wearable technology – there may have been fireballs . . .

We’ll be launching #StereocastVR soon through app, YouTube and Facebook, viewable on Google Cardboard, Gear VR and high-end headsets such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlaystationVR. The 360º experience will also be available on smartphones and tablets for those not jumping straight into the virtual show.
