We are very excited to announce that VRScout is teaming up with The White House to bring you an exclusive live 360° simulcast of President Obama’s farewell address tonight.

As you may have heard, President Obama will take his place behind the podium one last time this evening to deliver his Farewell Address to the American people. When he does, we’re going to make sure you get to see the speech live from Chicago even if you can’t make it there in person.

This will be the first Presidential speech of its kind streamed live in 360°. We’re honored to have been chosen by The White House to bring such a historic event to life, and to preserve this moment for future generations.

barack-obama-gear-vr-presidentTo make it a reality, we’re working with our friends at Radiant Imagesvantage.tv, and Nokia OZO to set up 3D 360° cameras throughout McCormick Place in Chicago, where the speech will take place. The Nokia OZOs will be streaming live to VRScout’s Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter/Periscope.
