360° panorama video is an immersive video – a recording of a real world scene, where the view in every direction is recorded simultaneously and stitched together into a single video covering complete 360×180 degree view.
During playback, the viewer has control of the viewing angle, being able to look at any direction, even straight up and down. Equipped with proper software, mobile handsets can be applied to play panoramic videos in such a way, that simply by moving the device, the user controls the viewing direction in the immersive video space.
Recent development in mobile devices also enables truly immersive experiences to smartphone users via affordable virtual reality (VR) goggles. High resolution displays, fast processors, built in sensors, high speed wireless communications and built in storage make all the required elements built in a compact form that can be easily coupled with a head-mounted display frame (HMD). Conceptually this is similar to Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Playstation VR, but more affordable and available immediately as a wireless solution.
