The first wave of consumer virtual reality is here!

Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive are shipping, and Sony’s PlayStation VR will hit homes in October. With the platforms in place and the money flowing across the ecosystem, it’s now all about the content.

Join us at Orange Silicon Valley on May 11, 2016 as we bring Hollywood and Silicon Valley together for a rich discussion of the fast-moving business opportunities in the buzzing VR marketplace. What are the big studios doing in VR? How are the new YouTube producers embracing the medium?  Are the business models of flat media translating into 3D? And are Silicon Valley VC’s getting on board this new wave of immersive content?

We’ll explore some of the fundamental requirements of a successful VR industry:

  • Supporting the investment ecosystem around VR content
  • Fostering more discussion and collaboration between Silicon Valley & Hollywood
  • Engaging and inspiring 3rd party content creators

 

Featuring Tony Parisi, VP of Web and Open Technologies at Wevr; Daniel Engelhardt, Lionsgate Director of Interactive Ventures and Virtual Reality; Joel Susal, Director of Virtual and Augmented Reality at Dolby Laboratories; Chris Chin, VR Content at HTC Vive; Greg Castle, Oculus investor and adviser to OSSIC; Will Mason, Co-Founder of UploadVR; and our distinguished moderator, two-time Emmy Award winner and industry analyst Seth Shapiro.

 
Tony Parisi will also be signing free copies of his latest O'Reilly Media book Learning Virtual Reality.
