The content landscape is vast and platforms are changing quickly. With virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, 360-degree video and projection mapping it’s hard to keep up. Are these just a collection of fads or is the future of content immersive? Dave Mason, Creative Director at Wheelhouse Media, discusses why you should care about immersive content and how it is becoming rapidly more available.
