Disrupt NY two thousand sixteen

When you can’t create it to the game in genuine life, the experience offered by virtual reality live streaming can get you closer to the action and more connected to the players and fans than anything else out there. Dave Cole, who co-founded NextVR in two thousand-ninth, will be joining us in Brooklyn at Disrupt NY to chat about immersive stereoscopic live streaming and whether anyone is really going to give a shit about VR a decade from now.

NextVR has been leading the charge to beam some of the most anticipated sporting events in virtual reality to users sporting headsets. They’ve brought their 3D VR cameras to the sidelines at NFL games, courtside at NBA games, ringside at boxing matches and to a grand deal of other sports, and they’re only getting started.

VR certainly seems to have a lot of potential at the moment. Virtual reality live event streaming could grow to become a $4.1 billion market and reach ninety-five million users by two thousand twenty-five according to a Jan report from Goldman Sachs.

NextVR has raised over $35 million from major investors love Formation eight and Comcast Ventures, signed multi-year deals with major sports broadcasters and has already begun eyeing live entertainment options that fall exterior sporting events.

We’re pumped to chat with Cole about his thoughts on early consumer adoption of virtual reality and everything that’s following for NextVR.

Dave is joining our stellar list of Disrupt NY speakers that includes Uber’s David Plouffe, Foursquare’s Dennis Crowley and Honest Company’s Jessica Alba and Chris Thorne.
