Good news to the Eurovision fans who watched the ESC National Selection Final on Saturday, 12th of March. The concert was also produced to be shown in virtual reality.

“LRT is one of the very first broadcasters to introduce this innovative technology not only among the Lithuanian, but also among the rest of the Eurovision broadcasters”, says Arnas Zuikis, Head of the LRT Innovation and Technology. “I’m sure that image filmed by virtual system cameras and supplemented with surround sound was a pleasant surprise to our Eurovision fans – impressive scenography and whole of the studio was displayed at 360-degree angle. It was a great pleasure to co-operate in this project with the professionals of “Wide Wings” creative studio who were among the first to use this innovation in Lithuania.”

The National Selection Final filmed by virtual reality cameras will be soon be available to all smart device users.

This video material will be for the first time presented at the "TEDxVilnius" conference, in the beginning of April. Shortly after the event, it will also be available on “YouTube” for all users that have virtual reality glasses or simply a smart phone or a tablet PC.
