Virtual reality is on the verge of exploding into the mainstream, as headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive near consumer release, and it's not only about games: 360-degree videos are also helping to lead the charge for this immersive new tech.
Video streaming is permeating all aspects of society. Improvements in streaming video technology continue to make it more affordable and less complex, opening up virtually limitless use cases at home, at work, or on the go.
