From Linear Stoytelling to Immersive Journalism: Video Interview with Gabriel Lifton-Zoline

Virtuality Reality is on the rise – in journalism as much as anywhere. Through the use of 360-degree cameras, viewers can experience a feeling of immersion into the story, while producers can enhance the intensity of the communicated message with immersion techniques. And Gabriel Lifton-Zoline, COO of RYOT, wants to use the according technical innovations for that purpose exactly. In an interview with Philip Banse of dctp.tv, conducted at rpTEN, he explains the wider social relevance of the advance of VR in journalism, and the shift from linear to immersive storytelling that comes with it.
