Virtual reality (VR) is a simulated immersive experience that can be both similar and dissimilar to the actual world. It's a computer-generated world of realistic-looking environments and objects that gives the audience the feeling of being fully immersed in their surroundings.
One of the most effective content types for user interaction is 360-degree VR video. It transports viewers to a real-like visual experience, immersing them in a specialty setting. Since 360° videos put the viewer in the heart of the action, they have a high level of audience engagement.
Stereoscopic VR refers to VR video content that has been captured by camera(s). It can only be viewed with a VR headset. There are two pictures in stereoscopic virtual reality, one for each eye. Stereoscopic 360-degree VR aids in achieving a depth perception and more strongly matches how we see with our eyes.
Monoscopic VR refers to VR video content that is captured by camera(s), and can be viewed with or without a VR headset. A single flat image is projected on a sphere around the viewer in monoscopic 360-degree VR videos. While it is not as immersive as stereoscopic VR, it is more flexible and cost-effective in general.
