Image Sensors Europe event publishes an interview with Jason Lovell, ex Head of VR from Samsung and now founder and CEO at his own company Captivate. Few quotes:
Q: What changes have you seen in the image sensors market for VR in the last 5 years?
A: It’s now about creating content for VR that fully maximises its strengths; allowing users to have experiences that simply aren’t possible with existing mediums. The quality of 360 degree image/video capture is obviously fundamental to this, both in terms of the professional and home consumer markets, as the content created via both of these channels will be the lifeblood of the technology moving forward.
"What’s also going to be interesting is how the worlds of VR and augmented reality (AR) co-exist, as I’m extremely excited about the growth of head-mounted AR solutions over the next 3-5 years. Microsoft Hololens is a great start here, but the future will be fascinating."
