We’re Live Streaming President Obama’s Farewell Address in 360° Tonight.
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.
Tune in to watch the 360° livestream of President Obama’s Farewell Address:
January 10, 2017 (6pm PT / 8pm CT / 9pm ET)

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.
To make it a reality, we’re working with our friends at Radiant Images, vantage.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.
During the livestream, you’ll be able to watch from different vantage points as if you’re right here with us. You’ll be able to turn your phone, or drag your finger/mouse to move around within the video and explore every angle of this historic event. If you have a VR headset you will be able to pop it on and feel as though you’re sitting there.
