VR SCOUT STUDIOS
- a case study -
Defining the Scope
VR Scout is a major player in the realm of virtual media and Fueled on Bacon had a unique opportunity to work with them. We were tasked with creating a marketing platform site for virtual reality oriented events and experiences, with the added goal and deadline to facilitate an exclusive live stream of President Barack Obama’s farewell speech at the request of the White House. Fun fact: YouTube did not support a method for embedding a 360° live stream when we began this project.
Making it a Reality
True to their name, the professionals at VR Scout are vanguards of the virtual world. Their Studios addition had to showcase the technology and its applications. For the streaming page we built a custom WordPress plugin from the ground up to handle the embedding of the live stream. The opportunity for VR Scout to film the live stream for the President’s farewell address was finalized very close to the event, so we had to get this built and launched inside of 2 weeks.
Lines of Code
Cups of Coffee
After a whirlwind development sprint, launch day had finally arrived and millions tuned in to experience this historical event in a revolutionary new way. VR Scout now has a flexible solution to embed all future 360° live streams and create landing pages that are independent of the parent theme on their widely read website. Fueled on Bacon is proud to have worked on a project of such significance.
