Immerse yourself in cutting-edge visual technology at the 10th Global Investigative Journalism Conference, in a special virtual reality showcase hosted by Emblematic Group and presented by award-winning film producer Cassandra Herrman. Emblematic, a California-based studio pioneering immersive video for investigative journalism, will set up a virtual reality experience at GIJC17 in Johannesburg on November 16-19. The group will demonstrate its work done in collaboration with Frontline, the U.S. Public Broadcasting Corporation’s flagship documentary series. The room-scale walk-around VR experience will place users inside a scene, allowing them to move through, interact, and play with the story. Using state-of-the-art technology such as photogrammetry and volumetric 3D video, the experience pushes the boundaries of immersive storytelling while exploring what virtual reality can bring to journalism.
