In their talk “Livestreaming VR Games: ‘SUPERHOT VR’ and ‘Surgeon Simulator: Experience Reality'”, Dan Rubenfield and Brett Holton will go over the challenges and benefits of VR streaming, how developers can capture a spectator audience for their VR game, and also how streaming can benefit virtual reality games.

A key goal of the panel is to provide insight for VR developers trying to figure out how to bring their content to wider audiences through spectating/live streaming. At the end, the panelists will gladly answer questions from the audience, so please join them to get your questions answered!
