Twitter to Feature NBA Finals Highlights in 360-Degree Angles, Sponsored by Samsung
Social microblogging site Twitter will be releasing its first ever 360-degree video, featuring tonight's NBA Finals game.
Twitter is apparently following the footsteps of fellow social networks Facebook and Youtube with the launch of 360-degree videos on its own site. The site has collaborated with tech giant Samsung to sponsor these videos, which will be recorded using its new Gear 360 Camera. The 360-degree NBA clips will be exclusive to Twitter, according to Endgadget.
A Samsung representative confirmed to CNET that the videos will not be live. The clips will be pre-recorded and uploaded later. The video clips are expected to include warm ups, team huddles and any pre-game and post-game on-court activities.
As this is a sponsored move by Twitter, Endgadget reports that fans will be expecting to see Samsung Mobile promoted tweets on people's timelines.
The Samsung Gear 360 camera is said to be able to capture 3840 x 1920 videos at 30FPS, according to Endgadget's review a few months ago. The camera is built around two 15-megapixel sensors and is placed behind a fisheye lens. Either sensor be used with the handle or set down on a surface with a mini-tripod.
The gadget is also compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The smartphone can be synched with the camera to activate its remote-control features and the footage can be seen on the phone's screen in real time.
Lebron James' Cleveland Cavaliers faced off against Stephen Curry's Golden State Warriors today. ESPN dubbed it "The 21st Century NBA Rivalry," reminiscent of the match between Magic Johnson and Larry Bird in the 80's.
The Warriors won the first game in the Finals with a final score of 104 - 89, a massive 15-point lead against the Cavaliers. Warriors' Shaun Livingston gets a playoff career high of 20 points.
For those interested in seeing hightlights from the game, 360-angle videos will be uploaded on NBA's Twitter feed.
