For technicians, where is this being applied currently, and what are the challenges and facilitators for adoption? For storytellers, how does this change the creative process, and what are the considerations for distribution? This panel brings together content creators and R&D practitioners from across different facets of the entertainment industry to talk about how XR technology has evolved legacy practices and where we anticipate such trends to play a key role going forward.
